What causes deep vertical lines on seniors' foreheads?

I honestly don’t have any but I see so many people, even ones in their forties, with those lines on their foreheads. Often, they’re just between their eyebrows.
What causes them? Cigarettes, dehydration, stress or what? I’ve seen them 1/8” deep.

My case I think it was the coffee table I think.

Depends on just how old one is and personal genetics.
If we make it long enough everything will have deep vertical lines, and horizontal lines and criss crossed lines and folds and flaps and crevices and…okay, now I’m depressed. Another good reason for dying before ancient age arrives. lol

I have very few wrinkles. However, I have one pronounced, vertical wrinkle between my eyebrows. It’s not huge. It doesn’t bother me. It is there and my kids joke about it. I think it’s because when I’m focused and concentrating I tend to frown and that’s resulted in this evil wrinkle. I’m not stressed. It’s just my default face when engaged in serious thought (I think!). I think a lot. It may also be genetic. I’ve never thought to go through old photos. I really think it’s just a frown line. All the other things in @Pachy‘s link matter in terms of line reduction but since the rest of my face isn’t affected, I think it’s a localised response to repeated frowning while concentrating.

@Earthbound_Misfit You and me both. Exactly the same here.

Squinting into the sun for years can do it, such as farmers…

And so can frowning all the time like @Earthbound_Misfit. If you’re angry and frowning I think it’s worse.

I have virtually no crows feet, lip wrinkles, but I am getting puppet lines, the vertical lines that flank your mouth, cheeks. We’ll call them smile lines. haha

In my case, it will probably happen from trying to figure out questions like this one
