I am 38 years old. I am desperate to find a non-invasive procedure to help reduce the lines going accross my forehead. I have four (two are very small) but am very depressed about how old I feel I look because of them. Does Botox work on this type of crease?

Botox is fantastic for forehead lines but consider skin care too
Botox treatment for dynamic wrinkles on the forehead is a great option for achieving a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
Another thing to consider is skin care. Products like Retin-A and alpha hydroxy acids help the skin to turn over more rapidly, thereby improving skin quality. They help reduce finer wrinkles and take the edge off of deeper wrinkles.

Botox is an excellent choice for softening of these forehead lines, but it's important to have a surgeon perform the procedure who understands the amount of Botox that will be effective as well as the pattern of injection to use. If the procedure is not done properly, it can leave you with an uneven position of your eyebrows or even drooping of your eyebrow or eyelid. So as with any procedure, do your homework, ask to see some Before and After photos, and pick the doctor whom you feel the most comfortable with.

Botox works beautifully for transverse forehead rhytids - brow wrinkes.
You should be treated by a qualified injector; I would suggest a plastic surgeon, as they generally understand facial muscle anatomy better than other providers.
You can expect the result to last 3-5 months, and then a retreatment will be needed if you like the result and wish it to continue. It should cost you about $400-500 per session, depending on where you are treated and by whom.

Botox for Horizontal Forehead Creases
Thanks for the great question -- don't be depressed, there are great options available! In short, yes, Botox can soften the horizontal forehead lines. These are caused by the activity (or overactivity) of the frontalis muscle. Multiple, small, targeted injections into this muscles will soften the creases in the forehead and give you a smoother, younger look. If this is your first treatment, I recommend starting with a low dose and seeing how you like the effects. Best of luck!
Botox is the best solution for forehead wrinkles!
Please don't be depressed. Botox is the ideal and simple solution for forehead wrinkles. When I started practicing and Botox was discovered it was truly revolutionary. Previous to Botox people would undergo brow lift procedures which is a very invasive surgical procedure. Botox works around the eyes, the glabella area, and the neck wrinkles as well. Just find an experienced board certified dermatologist for your treatment.
