40 y/o - Botox, filler, or laser for (really) angry 11s?
Botox is where I would recommend you start. It won't improve the line that is always there but it will weaken the muscle and prevent the line from getting worse. If the line disappears at when the muscle isn't flexing then Botox would be all you need.
Depending on the result of that you can consider a resurfacing procedure such as a laser or chemical peel to help with the line at rest. Fillers can be used in that area but be careful as some of the very serious risks of fillers have a higher incidence in that area (such as skin loss and blindness).
I would recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon to go over your options in person.

Start With BOTOX
From your picture and your description of what your goals are, filler will not be necessary. Botox is a perfect place to start. Be sure to discuss with the injector what your specific goals are. A minimal amount of Botox ma be added for the first time. After two weeks, follow up with the injector. At that time, you may love it or may want a few additional units. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

Combination Botox and Dermal Filler Treatment
Botox will soften the look of the Glabella region by weakening the muscle movement that create the lines. Depending on severity, the addition of a dermal filler such as Restylane or Juvaderm can also help fill in these deep creases.
A consultation from a Board-Certified Expert Injector is needed to fully evaluate your needs.
