Botox: Still the Leading Solution for Frown Lines

Both in the United States and around the world, Botox® ranks as the No. 1 medically administered cosmetic injectable, and for good reason. As the go-to treatment for long-lasting wrinkle reduction and prevention, it’s helped millions of adults temporarily erase frown lines and attain smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

If you haven’t already tried Botox for yourself, you probably know one, two, or quite possibly a few people who have. You may even know someone who never seems to age because they actually get a little anti-aging help from regular Botox boosts.  

Here at 23 Sandstone Body and Mind Spa in Jackson, Tennessee, we’ve used Botox to help numerous women and men diminish deep creases, soften expression lines, and take years off their appearance — quickly, safely, and with beautiful results.

Find out why Botox is the leading solution for frown lines, and why its popularity continues to grow.  

Botox delivers beautifully consistent results

Nothing beats Botox when it comes to diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and leaving your skin looking naturally fresh. So how does it work?

Botox is a therapeutic agent that contains miniscule amounts of a highly purified protein. When we inject small doses of this protein at specific points in your facial anatomy, it effectively blocks the nerve signals that help the muscles in that area contract. As your facial muscles begin to relax, your overlying skin appears smoother and less wrinkled.

Botox can help you soften or even erase the deep furrows between your brows and the frown lines across your forehead that may make you look perpetually upset or worried. It can also reduce or erase the laugh lines at the corners of your eyes that seem to multiply with each passing year.

Botox is completely customizable

Botox may have built its outstanding reputation on how effective it is for taking years off your appearance, but you don’t even need to have visible wrinkles to make the most of the world’s leading anti-aging remedy.

That’s because Botox also works as a “prejuvenation” treatment, meaning it can be used to stop wrinkle formation before it begins. In recent years, preventive Botox treatments have become increasingly popular among Millennials and young adults, a growing number of whom keep regular Botox appointments as part of their personal skin and beauty maintenance routine.

The main difference between using Botox to diminish established wrinkles and using it to prevent wrinkles lies in the dosage. Younger patients need a minimal amount of the protein to attain subtle results that don’t leave them looking frozen.

Botox is safe, easy, and painless

In 2017, more than half a million people in the United States used laser skin resurfacing to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, while more than 2.6 million people chose to turn back the hands of time with the help of hyaluronic acid and other injectable dermal fillers.

While these anti-aging treatments work well and remain ever-popular, they pale in comparison to Botox, which was administered more than 7.2 million times in 2017 alone. That’s because Botox is about as close to a complete package as you can get — besides delivering beautifully consistent results, it’s safe, easy, and painless, too.

A typical Botox treatment takes just 10 minutes and includes three small injections to treat the wrinkles around each eye, and five small injections to treat frown lines. Because the injection needles are so slender and the procedure is so fast, the treatment is painless.

Just as importantly, Botox is FDA-approved as a cosmetic anti-aging solution, is officially approved for use in 96 countries around the world, and has an impeccable safety record.
