Botox for horizontal crease on bridge of nose

Botox can work well for horizontal creases at the nasal root. If the horizontal crease is only present when you scrunch your face, botox into the procerus will keep you from making the crease.  If the horizontal crease is present when your face is at rest, botox will not be able to erase it, but may be able to soften the crease.

For a deep crease  on nasal bridge  I would use botox or dysport.  These usually do quite well.

You can try a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm to fill that horizontal nose crease or try Botox.  If you do Botox first, you may not need the filler!  Whenever you decide, please go to an experienced injector.
