Wrinkles caused by stress?

I got a small wrinkle due to heavy stress. Everytime I wash my face in the morning, the wrinkle gradually disappears which leaves a red line mark behind and then it's completely gone in the afternoon. Can this type of wrinkle be easily removed/reduced permanently? Thank you

Dear Ziomack:

Botox can be used effectively to soften up and reduce your wrinkles.  Botox injections normally last 3-4 months.  All the best.

Without seeing your photographs its hard to say, but I would suggest trying to improve wrinkles using a neurotoxin product such as Botox. Ask a board certified plastic surgeon for their opinion.

It's hard to tell without a picture. Wrinkles can be improved with either Botox or facial fillers. I recommend a consultation with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

It is hard to make a solid recommendation. In general, frown wrinkles can be improved with using Botox. It is very effective and will last about 4 months.
