Forehead Wrinkles: Botox Or Fillers?

One of the first signs of aging skin is the appearance of horizontal forehead wrinkles. As we age, the appearance of forehead wrinkles deepens, making you look tired or old. However, forehead wrinkles can be addressed with several cosmetic procedures that involve nothing more complicated than an injection.

Neurotoxins (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero) are the most popular products for facial wrinkles and fine lines. While people often talk about these products interchangeably, they’re actually extremely different products. Besides having different properties, they also affect your facial skin in different ways.

Botox and other neurotoxins are generally used to address forehead wrinkles and lines caused by the overuse of facial muscles. Dermal fillers are generally used to restore facial volume and “fill” wrinkles and fine lines caused by the loss of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Finding the right treatment for your wrinkles can be challenging.

This article aims to help you decide if you need Botox or dermal fillers for your forehead wrinkles.
