The search for safe, convenient, and effective antiaging treatments will most likely be an ongoing quest as long as the human race exists. Not because we’re vain, but because we want to look like we feel on the inside, which is often younger and more vivacious than our skin makes us appear.
As health care professionals, we encourage good eating habits, drinking lots of water to maintain ourselves hydrated and an active healthy lifestyle. Sometimes that may not be enough and we may want to enhance or prevent fine lines, we do provide treatments that help you look as good as you feel both inside and out.
Our team offers proven, safe, and effective antiaging treatments, such as Botox®, as part of our complete women’s medical and aesthetic treatments. If you’re concerned that your facial lines are making you look older, discover why Botox still reigns as the leading treatment for crow’s feet and frown lines. Then decide if this nonsurgical treatment is right for you.
As one of the oldest nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, Botox has a track record for being a safe and effective antiaging treatment. In fact, Botox received its first FDA approval in 1989 for therapeutic use. Since then, after a substantial amount of clinical trials, the FDA in 2002 approved Botox as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines.
It was the first of its kind to be approved for cosmetic treatments and is still the only FDA-approved product that improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet in both men and women.
Today, Botox is approved for use in 98 countries around the world and is still the No. 1 selling treatment of its kind. It’s also the most widely researched and studied cosmetic treatment that’s proven to smooth frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes.
If you’re considering an aesthetic treatment, and you’re concerned about safety, Botox is one of the most secure treatments available — knowledge that certainly makes it easier to proceed with confidence.
When you have kids to take care of, work demands, and a million other things to fit into your busy day, the last thing you want to do is take time off from life to recover from a surgical procedure, such as a face-lift.
Beyond interrupting your schedule, you may not be excited about an elective surgery that comes with risks and a long recovery period. Botox provides a minimally invasive alternative to going under the knife.
With just a few precisely placed injections, your Botox appointment can take place during your lunch hour, and you can return to work or family obligations without downtime. Depending on which areas of your face are receiving the Botox, injections take as little as 10 minutes in our office. After that, you can resume your regularly scheduled commitments without worry of downtime or painful recovery.
You’ll most likely notice a visibly smoother forehead and less prominent crow’s feet in the first 24-28 hours after your Botox treatment. Results can last for four months, maybe longer, so you won’t have to worry about multiple consecutive appointments to achieve your desired results. Many adults get Botox injections just 2-3 times a year to maintain their youthful look long term.
Botox injections work below the surface of your skin to temporarily reduce muscle movement that causes wrinkles. Over time, making repeated facial expressions when you laugh, frown, or squint leads to lines and wrinkles that are etched into your skin. When you reduce the muscle’s ability to make these expressions, those lines and creases appear smoother and less noticeable. Treatments of fine lines help prevent deeper wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles and not letting them contract with repeated facial expressions.
Our skilled medical aesthetic providers know precisely how much Botox to inject into your forehead and around your eyes, and exactly where to place those injections, so you won’t look “frozen” or overdone. You’ll still be able to make your natural facial expressions; you’ll just look younger doing so, giving you a more youthful and alert look.
If antiaging treatments occupy your thoughts each time you look in the mirror, why not take action? With the elite safety record of Botox, along with its effectiveness and long-lasting results, you can proceed without worry with the leading treatment for crow’s feet and frown lines.
