Hello and thanks for your question.
This is due to corrugator or forehead muscles and can be improved with botox.
This is an anatomic insertion of the frontalis muscles that could be improved with BOTOX injections...
The V-shaped ridge is prominent Corrugator (frown) muscles. This muscle (and its resulting ridge) can be relaxed with botulinum toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) injection.
The line are due to muscles in forehead Botox will help. The best option would be to see a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
