Forehead Fillers and Botox for deep vertical line. (photos)

You may be a great candidate for BOTOX®.
There is a solution
Botox and Deep Crease
In my opinion you are a great candidate for Botox and maybe even a filler. With Botox you will need to go every 60 to 90 days, and filler will last 9 months. So keep in mind the maintenance afterwards.
Please consult a professional in your area.

Botox Is Typically Best Treatment for Frown Lines
You are very young to have such a deep crease in your forehead and I understand your desire to take care of it before it worsens. Botox would be an excellent choice for you. This neuromodulator works by relaxing the dynamic muscle that causes the targeted wrinkle, allowing the skin to smooth out. Although Botox must be re-administered every three to four months, in some cases continued use weakens the muscle sufficiently so that it no longer flexes enough to cause wrinkling, and therefore the Botox can be discontinued, or at least administered much less often. This is highly variable by individual, however. If the muscle does not relax sufficiently to smooth out the wrinkle to your satisfaction, a hyaluronic acid-based filler such as Juvederm or Restalyne can help. Talk to a board-certified dermatologist so he or she can discuss all the options available for your case.
Treatment for deep vertical line
I can completely understand your concern with the deep vertical crease in your forehead. You are young and do not want to look beyond your years. The great news is you do not need cosmetic surgery, you are a great candidate for Botox. Botox can be placed in your forehead area to prevent the corrugator muscle from contracting and creating the crease you dislike. The effect of the Botox should relax and soften the vertical line. Best of luck!

Combination treatment with Botox and fillers for deep frown lines
Unfortunately, there isn't a permanent solution that I can recommend for your deep frown line. However, I do believe you will get a nice result with Botox injection to the glabellar muscle complex. If the lines do not completely resolve with Botox injection, a filler such as Juvederm, Restylane or Belotero can be injected in addition to the Botox to improve the result. Unfortunately, the Botox will need to be reinjected every 3-4 months. The filler will last longer as long as you maintain the Botox treatments.

Forehead Fillers and Botox for deep vertical line.
There're no non surgical permanent solutions. I might try 20 to 25 units BOTOX with 1 syringe of Restylane silk HA filler. Plus might add Nova Lift to glabellar (about 12 threads to give a 1 to1.5 year result)... Fee range from $2,000.
Botox/Dysport plus filler
I think you would achieve a wonderful result with a combination of a neurotoxin (ex: Botox, Dysport) and a thin filler such as Belotero or Restylane Silk. Botox is placed with just a few small injections and lasts ~4-4.5 months in most people. Some people find with continued use it lasts even longer. This would relax the muscle creating the furrow. A filler can be placed in the skin to further soften the line. Injection of a filler in this area should always be performed by an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon familiar with the anatomy. If placed incorrectly the filler can cause serious complications such as damage to the skin of the forehead and scarring.
