In Korea, a beauty powerhouse, forehead plastic surgery, which rounds the forehead by injecting hyaluronic acid, is very popular.
Just by adjusting the rounded and flat forehead, which is often found in Asians, into a smooth egg-shaped curve, the forehead will be sharpened and the impression of the face will change significantly.
Contouring by injecting hyaluronic acid is also called petit plastic surgery, and it is popular in Japan as it raises the nose by injecting it into the nose and makes the round face look sharp by injecting it into the chin.
In Japan, the priority is not as high as in South Korea, but it is said that more and more people are looking for a rounded feminine forehead like a Korean entertainer.
The amount of hyaluronic acid injection has become more popular in recent years , but the forehead is said to be a relatively difficult part of the facial hyaluronic acid injection, and the appearance after the treatment is greatly affected by the doctor's technique.
In order to avoid getting bumpy and receiving corrective treatment at another hospital, know not only the effects and benefits of injecting hyaluronic acid on the forehead, but also the injection method, injection amount, and how to choose a doctor so that you will not fail. By leaving it, you can receive the treatment with peace of mind.

The shape of the forehead is an important part that determines the beauty of the face. Asians often have a flat, rounded forehead, but the three-dimensional appearance of the face makes it possible to create a crisp, well-organized face .
It is said that the rounded forehead collects light, so the face itself looks bright, and the center is fixed, which also has a small face effect . The plump and rounded forehead gives a youthful impression.
A common case is a flat or wavy forehead that is slightly dented from the top of the eyebrows. If the upper part of the eyebrows is depressed and the eyebrows are exposed, it will give a masculine, rugged impression or an old impression, but by treating it so that it draws a smooth and beautiful curve, the impression of an oblique or profile is feminine. , Youthful .
Hyaluronic acid injection on the forehead is suitable not only for those who have a flat forehead, but also for those who have atrophied bones due to aging and have a rugged facial impression .
Dents on the eyebrows are caused by age-related atrophy of both the frontalis muscle (the muscle of the forehead) and the frontal bone (the bone of the forehead). As age reduces not only muscle mass but also bone mass, it is also effective to inject hyaluronic acid into the temple dents at the same time as the forehead to make up for the volume lost due to age.
By increasing the volume on the forehead, you can expect the effect of creating tension and making wrinkles less noticeable, and lifting up the forehead to make it easier to open your eyes .
In general, botulinum toxin injection is effective for loosening facial muscles to prevent facial wrinkles, but for those who have no facial expression but wrinkles on the forehead are noticeable, or for those who have botulinum toxin injection, the upper eyelid becomes heavy. For those who go down, you can try to improve the wrinkles on your face by injecting hyaluronic acid.
"Hyaluronic acid", which is widely used as an ingredient in supplements and skin care, is a substance that originally exists in the human body. It is a mucous component that helps the body's circulation and metabolism, and is present in all connective tissues and organs such as joint fluid, blood vessels, brain, and eyeballs, in addition to the skin.
In addition, it has extremely high water retention capacity and viscosity as a biological component, and it is said that 1 g of hyaluronic acid has a water retention capacity of 2 liters to 6 liters.
Hyaluronic acid is familiar to the human body and has a low risk of exclusion reaction, so it is called a dermal filler or filler that fills wrinkles and swells dents, and is widely used all over the world.
It is one of the highly safe cosmetological treatments because the body rarely causes allergies as a foreign substance.
Hyaluronic acid is a component that is absorbed by the body. The long-lasting effect depends on the type of drug, but it is gradually absorbed into the body within a few months to 2 years and then returns to its original state.
There are many different types of hyaluronic acid. From soft hyaluronic acid, which moisturizes the skin, to hard hyaluronic acid, which is used to form the nose and chin, the drug used depends on the site of injection and the purpose of treatment.
If the hyaluronic acid preparation to be injected into the forehead is too soft, it will be absorbed immediately, and if it is too hard, it will be uneven and difficult to form, so use a hyaluronic acid preparation with moderate hardness .
With the normal needle injection method, you have to pierce the needle many times to match wrinkles and dents, but the tip of the needle is round and the needle hole where the drug comes out is on the side. If the injection method uses (blunt needle), it is possible to pierce the needle only at a few places to insert it .
Since the cannula is soft and flexible and has a hole for the drug to come out, it is possible to inject the hyaluronic acid preparation over a wide area evenly by rotating the needle under the skin, which reduces the number of needle sticks. I can do it.
In addition, since the tip of the needle of the cannula is round, it is difficult to damage small blood vessels, so it is said that there is a low risk of internal bleeding and redness .
Since the injection site is injected from the inconspicuous area of the temples and hairline, there is no need to worry about scratches on the conspicuous area of the forehead.
Depending on the medical institution, there are places where the massage is instructed because it is uneven immediately after the treatment, but if you are a doctor who has the technique of injecting hyaluronic acid into the forehead , the treatment that draws a smooth egg-shaped curve immediately after the treatment is possible. It is possible and no post-treatment massage is required .
The procedure of injecting hyaluronic acid into the forehead generally gives an injection of nerve block anesthesia, so it is said that there is almost no pain .
The effect of hyaluronic acid injection is not permanent and is gradually absorbed into the body.
However, hyaluronic acid is less easily absorbed by the forehead and temples than other parts, so the effect is relatively long-lasting . It depends on the hyaluronic acid preparation to be injected, but for example, in the case of Juviderm Vista Voluma xc, it is said that it lasts for about 1 to 2 years .
As for the frequency of receiving the treatment, you can expect the effect to continue if you inject it again after about one to one and a half years when you feel that the volume has disappeared.
Immediately after the procedure, you can finish the forehead with a plump and rounded shape.
Since no scalpel is used, the scars are not noticeable and the surroundings cannot be seen even after the treatment . Needle marks remain on inconspicuous areas such as hairline and temples, but they disappear in about a week.
The eyelids may swell, but it is said that they will be removed the next day . In rare cases, internal bleeding or swelling may occur, but it will subside in about a week .
If a doctor who has little experience in injecting hyaluronic acid on the forehead performs the procedure, it may be uneven, but it is said that it can be acclimated by massage .
If the massage does not improve the unevenness, it is necessary to dissolve the hyaluronic acid injected with hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that decomposes hyaluronic acid, and then inject hyaluronic acid again to correct it.
In rare cases, there is a risk of spotted fever, fever, discomfort, embolism, and infection . Also, if you add too much, it may put pressure on your sensory nerves and cause headaches .
As a guide, the amount of hyaluronic acid to be injected into the forehead is about 2cc to 3cc . The price varies depending on the hyaluronic acid preparation to be injected, but the market price per cc is about 60,000 to 100,000 yen .
1) Counseling / examination
First of all, we will discuss your worries and hopes with counseling. If you have any questions, I will ask you about the details at this time. The doctor will give you an explanation about your current condition and future treatment.
We design the injection according to the person's wishes and facial balance.
Inject hyaluronic acid preparation according to the design.
4) Explanation after treatment
It ends after receiving an explanation about precautions after the treatment.
In order to create a more voluminous and more attractive forehead, it is better to inject in two divided doses instead of injecting many at once, so that you can treat with more detailed prediction of the final result .
In addition to hyaluronic acid injection, you can make the forehead round by fat injection using your own fat .
For fat injection, there are treatments such as microfat / nanofat injection and CRF (condensed rich fat) / microCRF injection depending on the difference in collection method and processing method for fixing fat to the injection site.
In these fat injection procedures, impurities in the collected fat are separated and only high-quality fat is extracted, and smooth and fine fat is extracted. The fat refined in this way leads to a beautiful finish even when injected into thin areas of the skin.
Since refined fat has a high concentration of stem cells, the retention rate of fat is high, and the fixed fat can be expected to have a long-term effect .
In addition, purified fat contains a large amount of growth factors, which are proteins that promote cell proliferation and differentiation (cells acquire functions that meet their respective roles), resulting in damaged skin. It promotes cell recovery and can be expected to improve skin quality.
You can also round your forehead by injecting PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a component extracted from your own blood .
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is made by collecting your own blood and using a medical device to extract only the plasma containing a large amount of platelets from the blood.
PRP is an abbreviation for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is called platelet-rich plasma in Japanese. In other words, plasma (liquid component) that contains a large amount of platelets in the blood, and the platelets contained in PRP are the active ingredients that regenerate skin cells.
In addition to the effect of promoting skin tissue regeneration and rounding the forehead by the action of platelets, which are rich in growth factors that promote cell proliferation and cell differentiation in which each cell acquires a function that suits its role , deep wrinkles and deep wrinkles It can also be expected to be effective in improving dents and moss on the cheeks .
Forehead plasty by injecting hyaluronic acid is said to be the most difficult of all facial hyaluronic acid injections . Instead of just filling in the dents, you need to treat them carefully to draw a smooth egg-shaped curve and not to make them uneven.
There are clinics that teach massage for about a week because the forehead becomes uneven immediately after putting it in roughly or making a mistake, but if done correctly, massage is not necessary after treatment.
The shape of the forehead that maximizes the beauty of the person depends not only on the skeleton of the skull, but also on many factors such as how muscles and fat are attached and how hair grows.
In order not to fail with this hyaluronic acid injection, it is safe to have a doctor who is familiar with anatomy and has experience in injecting hyaluronic acid on the forehead .
Professor Kosuke Soyama, who supervised the article, taught me about hyaluronic acid injection on the forehead.
