Ask Our Expert: Will Botox or Dermal Fillers give me the best result?

Q: I have lines between my eyebrows, which treatment will give me the best results, Botox Cosmetic ® or a dermal filler?

A: Stand in front of your mirror. Do the lines between your brows become noticeable only when you are scrunching your eye brows together? Or, can you see the grooves between your brows even when you are not making a facial expression?

If the lines become noticeable only when scrunching your eye brows together or squinting, then Dr. Castillo would typically select Botox Cosmetic ®  as the best injectable treatment choice. Treating the over-active muscles with Botox Cosmetic ® can help prevent the creases or wrinkles in your skin from becoming deeper and deeper over time, resulting in groves that are present between your brows with or without facial expression.

If the lines are present even when you are not scrunching your brows, then a dermal filler can smooth out those lines nicely. In certain cases, Dr. Castillo might suggest using Botox Cosmetic® to relax the muscles that initially caused your frown lines and a dermal filler to fill and smooth out the frown lines to completely rejuvenate your lines. It is possible that you may also be a good candidate for a frown line excision. The frown line excision would provide you with a more permanent solution to your problem.
