Thanks for your question. Botox is a temporary neuroparalytic that is used to eliminate wrinkles in the periorbital and forehead area. Its also works well for softening the 11s (corrugated muscle). Fillers are used to add volume to the face and also deal with dipper folds and lines such as the smile lines and marionette lines. In addition filler can be used for filling the tear trough deformity and adding volume to the cheeks and lips. Please consult with your plastic surgeon to review the best options available for you.
Perhaps it is the way your are sleeping that may make the lines look a bit more prominent in the morning.
Hello and thank you for your question. Frown lines may be worse in the morning, this is true. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

Frown lines worse in the morning
All facial lines are often worse in the morning after sleeping on your side or stomach since the skin is folded up with pressure against the pillow and the lines get deep. Sleeping on the back is much better for lines but hard to learn if you didnt grow up sleeping that way.
It's possible that you are sleeping on your face and the swelling makes your wrinkles look worse in the morning. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
