Avoid Botox With These Treatments for Forehead Wrinkles
Forehead wrinkles are one of the most common and noticeable signs of skin aging. There are many remedies for forehead wrinkles, from homemade kitchen concoctions to perhaps the most famous aesthetic procedure, Botox injections. But not all of these solutions are reliable or safe. (Certainly, not all of them are affordable!) Luckily, there’s new solutions available – like glutathione (GSH) – that can help you get rid of forehead wrinkles without Botox!
Why We Get Wrinkles
Generally speaking, there are two types of wrinkles: temporary and permanent.
Temporary wrinkles, as the name indicates, change over short periods of time. One study indicates that wrinkles can be “transient”, perhaps appearing when we use forehead and eyebrow muscles to look upwards. These don’t seem to have as much to do with overall skin health so much as how our muscles are moving.
Permanent wrinkles, however, present more of a challenge. We get these wrinkles primarily from age and exposure to sun and pollution, particularly in places where our skin is frequently subject to stretching and movement. As we age and our skin accumulates damage, we lose elasticity and collagen production. This makes it harder for our skin to bounce back and eventually, it just doesn’t anymore.
How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles without Botox
Botox is a medication made from a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA (the same toxin that causes botulism). When injected into a muscle, it temporarily prevents the muscle from moving. While it’s also used to treat a variety of medical issues, it’s best known for its ability to smooth skin and reduce wrinkles.
While Botox injections for wrinkles has been a popular treatment since the early 2000s, it certainly isn’t pain or risk free. There is also evidence to suggest that it works better as a preventative than restorative measure, so it may not be ideal for those concerned with wrinkles they already have.
If you want to learn how to get rid of wrinkles without Botox, here are three of the most popular alternative solutions:
Surgery options, including skin tightening and facelifts, can be effective in removing forehead wrinkles, but they are not without risk. Like all surgical procedures, there are a number of associated dangers.
Lasers and chemical peels
Targeted lasers and chemical peels are designed to smooth the skin surface. This study, for example, looked at laser treatments and found promising results. But this wasn’t entirely effective and caused occasional burns. Additionally, there is no data on long term effectiveness but a high potential to be very irritating.
Over-the-counter and prescription wrinkle products
At-home skincare products are often the safest and easiest option for wrinkle treatments. However, not all products produce results. If you’re looking for proven results, it’s important to use skincare products that contain effective ingredients. One of the most promising ingredients to come on the market in recent years is glutathione!
Glutathione fights the root cause of wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. As we age, our ability to generate new skin cells and collagen declines as damage from UV rays and pollution accumulates, leaving skin looking dull, discolored, and wrinkled. But higher levels of GSH boost cellular repair and turnover, reducing wrinkles and improving skin elasticity, tightness, and plumpness.
This is why we developed our patented Auro Skincare Protocol and our targeted Auro spray. Using innovative sub-nanotechonology, these formulas provide a highly absorbable form of GSH along with proven wrinkle-fighting ingredients that boost collagen and cell turnover. These include topical retinoids (a form of Vitamin A), coconut oil, and Vitamins C and E.
With Auro Skincare, you can easily address the root cause of skin aging signs. This means getting rid of forehead wrinkles and other problem spots without Botox or other invasive procedures.
