Botox or Dysport
Those lines are getting etched in over time from repetitive movement of the frontalis muscle. A little neuromodulation with Botox or Dysport will do the trick, especially after 2-3 sessions. Be sure you get a little between the brows as well to prevent brow drop.
Botox is almost always the first choice...
all you need is a little bit and you'll see the benefits within a week...by two weeks if you're not entirely thrilled, it's always possible either to get some more or to consider some filler...but with the minor problem you describe, the botox should suffice
Botox for forehead lines
Botox stops movement and should be tried first. If your lines are still bothersome, filler can then be injected. Keeping up with your Botox injections will help the filler last longer.
Botox is definitely the best treatment
Botox or fillers?
In general, I prefer Botox in the upper half of the face and fillers in the lower half because they are more effective in these areas.

Minor wrinkles respond to Botox and fillers
Botox will help keep the lines from deepening and will help a filler last longer in any area that a line forms as a result of skin crimping with muscle contraction. If the lines are shallow and directly reinforced with muscle contraction, start with the botox injections and you may not even need a filler as your skin will grow in new collagen itself
Botox terrific for fine wrinkles
I recommend Botox for fine wrinkles in the forehead. While Botox works best for dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused from movement), they can often soften fine wrinkles at rest. Afterall, these fine lines are created from the muscles that make us wrinkle! Botox will not address deep set wrinkles, but in my experience, they do soften fine lines at rest. These fine lines can often be tricky to correct with fillers, so go with Botox first!

Botox for forehead wrinkles
I completely understand - at 34 I have a similar situation when it comes to my forehead. I recommend a few courses of Botox first. I think you'll really notice a difference. I usually reserve filler in the forehead for very deeply etched lines.
