Excessive use of anti-wrinkle injections, especially in the forehead, can result in a shiny appearance of the skin. When too many injections are administered, it relaxes the muscle (see our ‘How anti-wrinkle injections work’ article), and the skin becomes overly smooth, reflecting light uniformly like a mirror’s surface. In contrast, when light hits wrinkly skin it bounces off at a variety of angles, making it appeared matte and dull.

To avoid the shiny or frozen look, it is important to approach forehead lines with caution. Minimal injections can soften the lines while preserving natural movement, resulting in a more natural and subtle outcome.
