Deep forehead creases at rest
I agree with your insight that the deep creases on your forehead may be a family trait, and can appear at a younger age. You will need Botox injected conservatively, keeping in mind that your eyebrows will be in a more relaxed position and your brow could appear a little "heavier". Botox alone may be enough to eliminate the creases at rest if they're early and superficial (unfortunately there's no photo of your relaxed forehead to make a better assessment). If you have deep creases at rest, hyaluronic acid fillers will help to correct the depressed creases left after Botox takes effect . Etched-in creases are best corrected with Belotero Balance by itself or layered over a deeper filler such as Juvederm. This may take a couple of appointments. If you do develop the appearance of the heavier brow after Botox, it will reverse itself as the muscles recover from Botox. Sometimes surgical weakening of the forehead muscle is appropriate, but only if Botox and fillers don't give you the right balance and if you are inclined to pursue surgical treatment options. Hope this helps.

You're a good looking guy with deep forehead wrinkles. Once the skin has lost its "rubber band" - like elasticity it will crease in an accordion-like fashion. The dermis will thin and eventually etch a near-permanent line or wrinkle.
As you are aware, Botox is a muscle relaxer and properly injected will soften the mid-forehead lines. If Botox is injected for the lateral lines, the wrinkles will soften but your brows and your eyelids will droop as you appear to be maximally using your frontalis muscle to lift your brow and eyelids.
- Botox to soften the forehead lines, followed by
- Filler injection. I have found Restylane Silk in the forehead to provide a great smoothening improvement.
- Should you wish to "erase" the lines, retinoids will be necessary to hasten the collagen wrinkle-erasing process.

Ptosis could be the result of muscle weakness, detachment of structures, congenital, significant amount of excess skin or neurological problems. It is hard to judge from the pictures that you have posted as to what is causing these at your age. Although your seem to be forcing you eyebrows up with your forehead muscles. You may consider visiting a plastic surgeon who has experience in both forehead and eyelid surgery to see what would help you to get to the root of the problem. Botox effect is going to be temporary and you have long life ahead of you.
