Forehead wrinkles - what else can help, besides Botox? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 5
A neuromodulator, such as Botox, would be my first approach as these are lines of expression. For any residual lines one could consider a superficial filler, such as Belotero, or laser resurfacing.

Forehead Wrinkles: What Can Be Done Besides Botox?
Filler can be injected directly into each wrinkle in the forehead to provide a smooth, even appearance. Injecting filler without Botox can provide improvement, however because you will still be able to move the muscles in your forehead, the filler is very likely to wear off much sooner than usual (the average filler lasts anywhere from 6-9 months). Because Botox is preventing you from full expression, it also helps to avoid further deepening of the wrinkles if treated on a consistent basis.
In my opinion, the ideal treatment route would be to inject both Botox and filler, however if you are unsure about toxins, discuss your concerns in full with a board certified Dermatologist. Best of luck!
