Welcome and thanks for posting your query to HCM.
The very important thing you have to understand is that aging is a non-defying process. Since ages people have tried so many things to defy aging lines and the best successful treatment proved to be botox
. As botox gives the results within 7-15 days so is the most popular and even safe method so consered to be best.
Now as you are not satisfied with botox because of stiffness
so there are two good options:
1. To ask your doctor to use botox is in higher dilution or small number of units as with you will not be having complete freezing and your expressions will be present.
2. The second option is to use a cream. Though there are so may of the products in the market but the best possible for you are- Tretinoin
, Glycolic acid
and Vitamin C
serum application under medical guidance. With proper and continuous use you will be able to find good difference if the lines are bit fine. If the lines are coarse then you would be requiring longer usage. Be careful to apply medication near eyes.
Hope this information will help you.
