So I’m mid-forties and starting to get deep 11 wrinkles between my eyes. Is there anything which I can use on them which works well as an alternative to Botox, or shall I just bite the bullet and go straight for Botox (once I can!) thanks!

I think Argeline from the ordinary can help dynamic wrinkles but if it’s bad Botox is your best bet.

Honesty nothing will be a good alternative to Botox, no skincare can deliver the results that Botox can especially if your lines are deep

Botox! It works so well on my forehead. And prevents my 11s getting any deeper.

I use a combination of vitamim c serum, retinol and facial smoothies patches.
I buy them on amazon, they are transparent patches and you smooth the wrinkle, apply the patch over the top and leave in place overnight. This trains your skin and muscles not too move so much.
I now have extremely fine, hardly noticeable lines which I think looks more natural than a frozen botox forehead.
Also I can still move my face.
I have been asked if I have botox to which I can answer no and frown at the rude question smile

Thanks, I'm going to try the products mentioned as I can't book in for botox now anyway. Any if no joy, then botox it is.

I would recommend trying Linda Meredith V-Tox. It worked really well for me.
