Botox: Still the #1 Treatment for Erasing Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet
The proven results of Botox
Since Botox received FDA approval in 2002, more than 11 million men and women in have turned to it. What makes Botox such a huge success is its ability to erase wrinkles and facial creases at their source, your muscles.
Overactive facial muscles are a leading cause of wrinkles. Each time you make a facial expression, these muscles contract, which creates lines and creases in your skin. As you age, your skin becomes drier and loses elasticity, making it harder for your skin to smooth out again after these contractions, so your wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet deepen. Until they meet Botox, that is.
The medical formula behind Botox comes from a bacterial neurotoxin. This bacteria temporarily disrupts communication between your nerves and muscles. When injected into your face in small amounts, Botox relaxes your facial muscles, so you keep a smoother, younger appearance.
Even after all of these years, Botox remains the No. 1 anti-aging therapy for erasing frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. It’s used as a cosmetic treatment in 78 countries and is the top-selling product of its kind in the world.
A more natural-looking appearance
In untrained hands, Botox’s effects temporarily paralyze your muscles, resulting in a “frozen” appearance. With more than 30 years of medical experience, Dr. injects precise amounts of Botox into the treatment area to relax muscle activity, not limit it entirely. Using this approach, men and women in her care can expect a natural-looking, refreshed, and radiant appearance that preserves their facial expression.
Overactive muscles in the forehead and around the eyes cause frown lines and crow’s feet. To treat these lines, Dr. identifies the specific muscle groups creating the creases and administers a few injections. As the muscles relax, so does your facial expression.
Botox treatments also reduce the look of anger and tension on your face that these types of wrinkles often create.
Botox is clinically-proven to provide significant improvement within 30 days in 80% of men and women treated for moderate to severe frown lines.
Quick and painless treatments without downtime
In addition to proven results and a more natural appearance, Botox treatments are fast and relatively painless.
Your appointment usually takes about 10 minutes, so you can stop over your coffee break and then head back to the office. Depending on the treatment area and your sensitivity to needles, Dr.might apply a topical numbing agent to increase your comfort.
Dr. uses a very small needle to administer your Botox doses in multiple areas. The exact number of injections varies based on the treatment site and the severity of your wrinkles. When your appointment is finished, you can resume regular activities immediately.
