Juvederm will get rid of the crease, BUT it will come back soon after as you will still have your normal facial movements including frowning, I’ve had botox(I think it was you who asked about it on another thread?)and it’s honestly the best thing ever, like you it’s just the area between my eyebrows I wanted to smooth out, my forehead still moves, I still have facial expression and eyebrow movement the only difference is I don’t have that deep crease, never had any problems in the 5 years I’ve been having it, botox wears off after about 4 months with me and my frowning gradually returns so I only need it about once per year twice max. Sorry I can’t help with the juvederm question but if you call a clinic they can give you more info and advise you what would be best 🙂

About an hour after I have a very mild headache but not always, never had any bruising or bleeding and it’s completely painless as the needle is tiny. I’m having mine done 3 days before my wedding, that’s how confident I am that there will be no side effects! Of course always do your research but as long as you use a reputable clinic you should be fine.

MrsPiggles:  I know it’s not what you were to looking to hear, but I have the same thing and I’m doing botox. I’ve done it once before and liked the results, but wasn’t a fan of how it looked for the first few weeks after getting it done (too stiff), so I’m going to get it about two months before my wedding. Everything will still be firm, but if something goes wrong there will be time for it to relax some.

I am thinking about this. I have a very expressive face and have found, in more stressful times that I frown entirely subconsiously…I’m relatively happy with my resting bitch face 😉 and I love my laugh and smile lines, but there’s this pesky frown line, dead centre that just won’t quit!

This might sound crazy, – but my suggestion is Ambesol. You know, the stuff you put on baby gums when they’re teething.

An application lasts about 3 hours, so you’d be reapplying during the day, but it freezes the nerves (like Botox). Apparently it’s recommended as a ‘hold-over’ for people between Botox injection.

Botox. Best thing. My line disappeared, no bruising and it lasted 6 months.

Botox. Definitely.

You have enough time that any sort of ‘side-effects’ will subside before your wedding. There aren’t many to begin with if you go with a reputable place and get a small amount.

Botox.

Get it at least one full month before your wedding, maybe even two.

Do NOT go to a med spa or anywhere similar – have a plastic surgeon do your Botox for you. They understand how the muscles in your face work, and can inject to give you the most natural results. It will probably cost a bit more, but for your wedding, it’s worth it!

My doc HIGHLY advises against putting fillers in your forehead area as they can get lumpy and like a PPs it doesn’t help immobilize those muscles engaged when your face makes expressions.  Botox or Xeomin (which is the generation – purer concentration) is really the best at what you’re trying to do.  I have it done 12+ times and have never had a bad reaction.  But as others have advised, please go to a plastic surgeon and not a medispa to have it done.  My only complaint is that it doesn’t last that long for me 3-4 months and is fairly pricey for a repeated procedure.  I’m 40+ and have a very expressive face and forehead so I have some wicked lines on my forehead and between my eyebrows that makes me looks angry at times (when I’m not!) so Botox really helps. My face still moves naturally – I don’t look like the stereotype of botox plastic face – it just softens out my lines. 

Good luck!

MrsPiggles:  In case you haven’t considered it, your FI does not have to know… nothing wrong with a little secret! I’ve gotten Botox twice and my FI has no clue 🙂

I love Botox. It’s all in having a good physician
