I need help deciding between Botox and permanent lift procedures

Question: How effective is Botox for treating brow furrows? I am trying to decide between using something temporary like Botox, or going for a more permanent treatment such as a forehead or brow lift. How long would each injection last?
Answer: Botox works by disrupting muscles’ ability to communicate with one another. This has a relaxing/smoothing effect on the overlying skin. It is an excellent way to improve lines on the forehead and around your eyes. A brow lift, on the other hand, is performed to lift and reposition the brow. It is not a good method to treat lines on your forehead. The lines will return as long as you have intact muscles in your forehead.
