You will find a short description of the most common esthetic skin conditions on this website, including the different treatment options available:
A forehead lift treats the wrinkles of the forehead and/or lifts the eyebrows. The classic forehead lift involves removing excess skin by making an incision from one ear to the other in the hair. The skin of the forehead is detached from the skull, which also permits treatment of the procerus muscle (responsible for frown lines). This technique is the most drastic but gives the best results.
The endoscopic brow lift is another technique, which consists of a few small incisions behind the hairline to loosen the skin. The eyebrows are thus lifted, but it is not possible to remove skin or correct frown lines. The effect is therefore more subtle.
The temporal lift is a mini brow lift. The surgeon makes a small incision on the side of the forehead. This procedure allows the lifting of the eyebrows on the side. In combination with a (mini-) facelift, results are very good. After a (mini-) facelift, facial skin is lifted towards the corners of the eyes, but not above. The temporal lift can extend this effect above the eyes while giving very natural results. This procedure can be done under local anaesthesia and recuperation is rapid.
Muscle relaxants are also used to reduce forehead wrinkles. This non-surgical alternative is very successful and has significantly reduced demand for forehead lifting.
