I was told by my plastic surgeon, that Juvederm injections would not "effectively address" the horizontal wrinkles that run across my forehead. These lines are not deep, but they are very noticeable. If a combination of Botox and Juvederm injections won't work to reduce these wrinkles, then is there an injectible treatment for them? What are my other options?
Injectables vs. surgery
Assuming you do not have significant brow and lid ptosis then Botox would probably be the first thing to try. Be advised that if you do have a lot of sagging tissue over your brow and lids that your frontalis muscle (the muscle over your forehead) is likely helping to keep skin out of your visual fields. Botox can make this worse. Patients with these issues may need a brow lift or an upper lid blepharoplasty. I hope this helps.
