Hi-it looks like deep furrows from muscles in your face. The only way to deal with these that I know of is botox to relax the underlying muscle. This is not uncommon in males with no supraorbital ridge or a small supraorbital ridge.

You cannot buy it, you need to go to a doctor who specialises in cosmetic injections. It is an injection that needs to be done by a skilled doctor to paralyse the muscle and relax it which in turn will relax the wrinkling.

These are really deep meaning the muscle is very strong. I cannot imagine anything but a botox injection would actually relax the muscles but Fawnie uses something topical to relax muscles but I do not think it would do the job. She can probably better advise you. Hopefully she will read this thread and reply if not you may want to send her a private message but again, I doubt this would do the trick with the depth of the furrows and the strength of the muscles.

I know botox will help your furrows, but it must be done by a professional. Your forehead muscles will relax once this is done. You have been scrunching your forehead for a long time to produce such deep furrows. Stop worrying and enjoy life!

Clublimers, topical to relax muscles don't work at all, trust me, and stay away from Botox, this is a poison and at 18 y/o you don't want to be sick, you have your whole life a head of you, don't do stupid things such as botox!

Also are you ready to spend $400-$600 per treatment? and twice or 3 times a year? Keep your $ for Spring break and have fun instead of worrying about your forehead

Botox Side Effects

Here I go again...but there are exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles at the back of the scalp to lift the brow and that will help smooth out the furrows of the forehead.

Do you wear sunscreen? Sun damage can't help the problem.

Or you could wear your hair longer in front to cover the area.

ehh, live with it.
Have to agree with this one! Too young to have to start worrying about this. If it still bothers you when you are 30, then take care of it-

Hi Again. Yes Botox is a poison. But if you do your homework, you will see that, done by a professional, it can be very effective. It's not cheap, $300 to $400 a session, depending upon how many vials they use. But, after one visit, you will see results! If you don't like it, don't do it again! It won't kill you! I have had botox injections in my forehead several times....I am still here! They only people who freak about this, are the ones who have never had it done..!
After a few visits, those forehead muscles will "learn" to relax, and you won't have to have it done very often. This is what happened to me. But do go to a reputable dermatologist or get a "good" dermatologists recommendation. Do your homework and I think you will be glad you did! Good luck,

hon, you just gotta curb the expressions of shock and disbelief sometimes heheh. but nonetheless, you can go get a botox if you really want to have a smooth forehead.

This might sound stupid but, you could just grown your hair out a little bit so it'll cover it up.
That probably doesn't help though..

Lol, yeah botox is nothing to worry about.
It's very very common.
Just make sure you get a doctor who knows what they are doing.

Never had it, but I agree that Botox is a good fix if you can afford the upkeep.
