Hi Jill, thank you for the question.
Unfortunately, wrinkles in the area of our face such as the forehead are a result from movement of our facial expression muscles. If you are very expressive with talking (and please do not change your normal mannerisms) one will develop wrinkles from the constant folding of the skin.
Your best approach to reduce and prevent the wrinkles from forming is to use a good daily SPF (30 or higher) that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide as we get sun exposure from simply walking around, getting in/out of the car, etc. I would also consider using Botox as a preventative tool and remember at your age one does not need to completely immobilize the area to get a good effect.
If you choose this route please make sure that your cosmetic doctor understands the final effect you would like to achieve (smoothing out of wrinkles but with ongoing forehead movement).
