    There are many treatments for wrinkles; microdermabrasion, lasering, creams. The important thing to remember is the results are temporary with all treatments. Whatever treatment you go with you may also want to consider some changes in your daily routine. Wear sunglasses when in sunlight, use a mild sunscreen daily, etc.

    you have wrinkles on your forehead, what can you do? One obvious suggestion is to consider changing your hairstyle. Bangs will conceal wrinkles on forehead beautifully, and even if you have never had them in your life, now might be the time to consider a change. If you are concerned about whether they would suit you or not, there are plenty of makeover websites which allow you to take a picture of yourself and overlay various hairstyles. If you do this and find a look that you like, just take the picture to your hairdresser, and let the transformation begin! As with all issues involving skin, cleansing and moisturizing are key elements. But first, look at your foundation. Are you using a heavy foundation which is dragging your skin down and clogging up your wrinkle lines, making them look worse? Experiment with using a lighter foundation, perhaps a mouse or liquid when you have been used to using a cream. Most large department stores have beauticians in the cosmetics department who will give you free advice and even a makeover, so why not take advantage of their expertise to see if a change of foundation will reduce the appearance of your forehead wrinkles? There are also products around which will temporarily fill in those forehead wrinkle lines and plump up the skin. The best ones of these are expensive, but can be worthwhile for a special event. Again, get advice from a cosmetologist; if you can afford it, have a private consultation with a beauty expert who is not employed to promote just one single brand. Always remove your makeup with a good cleanser. Take care to select one which matches your skin type. Wash your face with a mild soap and warm water, using just your hands or a very soft cotton facecloth. Pat rather than rub your skin dry. There are literally thousands of moisturizing products on the market, so take your time to choose the right one. A moisturizer will hydrate your skin. In fact, you should have a selection of moisturizers in your skin care armory. Start out by selecting a day moisturizer which you can wear under makeup. If you always wear makeup come what may, then a moisturizing foundation will work for you. Then you should find a night foundation to use when you go to bed. These are generally heavier and harder working. Another useful tool for cleansing and hydrating is the face mask. Many people like to make up their own, and avocado, fine oatmeal and honey is one which can help cleanse, refresh, and plump out those forehead wrinkles. Make up the ingredients together, apply on your face, avoiding the delicate eye area, lay back and relax for half an hour and then wash off with warm water. Of course, wrinkles come from our habitual expressions, so make a point through life of avoiding frowning and screwing up your eyes to look at things. Smoking is also a cause of wrinkled skin, and this is just one of the many reasons that you really shouldn’t smoke. A last resort for many people is of course Botox, but it does create a rather immobile facial expression which is a dead giveaway. We like our faces to look as good as possible, but let’s remember that principally, our face is a communication tool, and our facial expressions are an important part of our relationship with others. The stretched, deadpan look of Botoxed skin can take away our ability to express our human warmth and love – and having a few wrinkles on forehead might actually make us look better!

    Not the only solution but a pretty good one for some people. It depends on the wrinkles and on what you want. If you are older than 60, Botox can not be used anymore and you might consider a facelift. If you are much younger you might want to use good moisturizers and wait.
