Do You Need Forehead Shaping?
The forehead is essential to attractiveness as it comprises the upper third of your face. The ideal forehead shape is a gentle convexity that is softly rounded with smooth contour and even texture. Concavities, flatness, lines, and asymmetry can detract from the healthy, youthful look of your face.
Looking at the forehead from a lateral view we can see the prominence and curvature of the forehead. Foreheads can either be sloped, straight, or curved, but with age, the forehead may become flat or even concave. Using dermal fillers, we can enhance the contours of the forehead and create the ideal shape. This procedure is great in combination with upper face contouring with neuromodulators to smooth the surface of the forehead and shape the brows.
Our Solution: Forehead Shaping With Fillers
Forehead shape is determined by one’s natural underlying bone structure, specifically frontal bone. The supraorbital ridge (“brow ridge”) plays a large part in the appearance of the forehead as well. While a prominent brow ridge is often seen as an attractive feature for males, in females it can take away from the smooth contour of a forehead. In experienced hands, dermal fillers can be applied to soften a prominent brow and create the ideal forehead shape and contour.
Your Forehead Shaping Procedure
At Mabrie Facial Institute, our Illumination 360° approach means your results will look amazing from any angle, in any light. If we agree that forehead shaping will help bring out the best version of you, it will be added to your personal treatment plan.
Filler can reshape the forehead and provide an even contour, filling concavities, and providing softer transitions between the supraorbital ridge and upper forehead. We place hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers from the JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® family of products directly on top of the frontal bone to contour the forehead. Treatment to this area is done using a small needle placing the filler right on top of the bone. It is important that the filler is placed in stages through multiple treatments.
Your refinement appointment is scheduled for 1 to 3 months after your initial procedure. This staging is necessary because too much filler placed at once can cause the product to spread outwards rather than upwards resulting in a less than ideal aesthetic result. Importantly, a layered approach allows us to safely administer filler without overfilling and compressing vessels. Forehead shaping is an advanced procedure best performed by highly trained injectors.

Forehead Shaping FAQs
How long do forehead shaping results last?
You can expect your forehead shaping results to last approximately 6 to 9 months. We recommend that our patients receive touchups on their fillers 1 or 2 times per year in order to prolong their results. By adding more filler before the original product breaks down entirely, we can reduce the number of syringes needed and keep your look fresh without interruption. For more information, read our blog post on how to extend the duration of your fillers.
How much does forehead shaping cost?
The forehead shaping procedure typically costs $2,000 at Mabrie Facial Institute. This includes your first appointment and the fillers used, as well as your second appointment and one additional syringe of filler. If additional syringes are needed, those are priced at a discount. Qualified borrowers may be eligible for 0% financing for 6 to 12 months through CareCredit and Alphaeon medical financing.
What is recovery like after dermal fillers in the forehead?
It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treatment areas. This should go away within a day or two. About an hour after your procedure, you can reapply makeup. This allows time for the injection sites to close and prevents you from introducing bacteria. You should be able to return to normal daily activities immediately after your treatment.
