Worry Lines

Service Essentials

Forehead lines (also known as worry lines) are one of the 3 most common concerns for people seeking anti-wrinkle injections at Amara.

When we look concerned, worried or surprised, movement of the muscles of the forehead causes worry lines to appear. The most noticeable lines appear horizontally across the forehead. These are sometimes referred to simply as horizontal lines.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ - What are worry lines?

Worry lines, also known as forehead lines or expression lines, are the creases or wrinkles that form on the forehead and often appear as horizontal lines. They are typically caused by repeated facial expressions and movements, such as frowning or raising eyebrows, that occur during periods of worry, stress, or concentration.

+ - How can I get rid of worry lines?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a very effective treatment for worry lines. These injections can temporarily relax the muscles causing worry lines, resulting in a smoother appearance.

+ - How can I prevent worry lines?

While it's challenging to completely prevent worry lines, you can take steps to minimize their development:

  • Practice stress management techniques to reduce excessive frowning or tension in the forehead.
  • Avoid repetitive facial expressions that contribute to the formation of worry lines.
  • Use sunscreen with a high SPF
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle (exercise, hydration and balanced diet)
  • Use skincare products that promote collagen production and help maintain skin elasticity.
+ - What causes worry lines?

Worry lines are primarily caused by repetitive facial movements and expressions, particularly frowning or raising eyebrows during moments of worry, stress, or deep concentration. Over time, these repeated muscle contractions contribute to the formation of visible lines and wrinkles on the forehead.

+ - Are worry lines permanent?

Worry lines can be either temporary or permanent, depending on various factors such as age, genetics, and lifestyle. Temporary worry lines may fade or become less noticeable with time, while permanent ones may persist. However, with appropriate treatment and care, the appearance of worry lines can often be reduced or minimised.

+ - How long does the procedure take?

Assessment and consultation are 10-15mins with treatment another 10mins.

+ - Does the procedure hurt?

In short, no. The needles we use at high quality and very fine. Most people report a small scratch at the time on injection and that's it.

+ - What are the potential risks or side effects associated with worry line treatments?

While worry line treatment is generally safe, it can carry potential risks and side effects. Common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site. 

+ - How long does worry line treatment last?

3-4 months is typical.

+ - What can't I do after worry line treatment?
  • Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activities for at least 24 to 48 hours following the procedure
  • Stay away from direct heat or sun exposure
  • Refrain from using certain skincare products. These may include retinoids, exfoliants, or other potentially irritating products that can interfere with the healing process or cause skin irritation.
  • Avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications
  • Follow post-treatment care instructions

From the amazing reception to leaving the clinic, this was a 100% enjoyable experience. Kelly and... Barbara on the reception are just pure joy, friendly, professional,and beyond welcoming. I had booked a hydra facial with Julie (more on that later) and a consultation with Dr Paul to discuss what I would like to have done.I was nervous and not sure what I would like to have done, also very nervous of been talked into treatment that I was not sure about. After a great informative chat with Dr Paul, I decided on profhilo as I was too nervous to go for Botox. I really respect that there was no pressure or hard sell. Just lots of good advice.Three months now and I am really happy with the profhilo, it has definitely moisturised my skin and evened out my skin tone.Hydra facial with Julie. This is one of my favourite treatments, the finish result is amazing skin, glowing clear complexion. Julie is a skin specialist, who educates you while working away with little gems of knowledge.I love going to the clinic not just for the facial, she is just the loveliest therapist and love the chats.Sorry for the long winded review, but I am so glad I came to the Amara clinic the whole team are simply amazing. So glad I found this place and very happy with the big improvement in my skin.Thank youLouise McCaberead more
