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 or Juvederm Work Well For Horizontal Forehead Wrinkles
Minute doses of precise Botox works very well for forehead lines. The level of the eyebrows needs to be checked as too much weakening of the muscle can cause eyebrow, or eyelid skin droop. Small doses of Botox over multiple areas is very verry effective. Eyebrow balance is necessary, and to prevent droop, Botox may need to be given to the crows feet, or eyebrow area. In certian cases the best choice is direct filling of the forehead lines with Juvederm, as this does not impact the eyebrow position.

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.

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.

As simple, and common of a procedure as this is, the decision to undergo a medical intervention should not be taken lightly. When properly executed, Botox injections can be an important adjunct in positively impacting the cosmetic appearance of someone's face.
Consult a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or a general plastic surgeon in your community for this matter.
