Botox: Why It's Still the Go-To Solution for Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet

Botox® is well-known around the world as a temporary, effective treatment against the look of aging. It treats crow’s feet and frown lines, softening your look and helping boost your confidence as you age. Millions of people use Botox to help themselves feel better about their appearance.

At The Effect Lifestyle Practice in Jacksonville, Florida, you can take advantage of expertly applied Botox injections to create a more youthful, line-free look. It’s a go-to for anyone looking to make their face look more youthful.

How Botox works

When you make expressions with your face, your muscles contract to form those expressions. Over time as you continue to make expressions, your muscles will begin to stay in a state of continual contraction. As a result, the muscles will cause the skin above to form lines and wrinkles. 

With just a few injections into key areas of your face, Botox can smooth these wrinkles. It contains a purified neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles in your face, thereby smoothing the skin above them.

Botox is well-researched

At least 10.9 million vials of Botox have been sold in the United States since 2002. Botox, which is FDA-approved for a number of uses, can treat forehead creases, lines between the eyebrows, and creases around the eyes.

More than 528 peer-reviewed studies have proven the efficacy and safety of Botox, making it a mainstay in aesthetic services.

Treatments are simple

Another factor that contributes to Botox’s popularity is its ease of use. If you come to The Effect Lifestyle Practice for Botox injections, you should be done in about 20 minutes. 

The needles used in the injections are very fine, but if you’re concerned about discomfort, we can treat the area where you get the injections with a topical numbing cream or ice.

Furthermore, Botox treatments require no downtime. After you get your injections, you can go right back to your normal routine. Even if you do experience slight bruising or swelling at the injection sites, it should be minimal and fade within a few days. And these possible side effects can be easily covered with makeup.

Results are fast

After treatment, you should notice changes within 24-48 hours and full results in less than seven days. The results should last for up to four months. And if you want to keep your great new look, we can schedule you for regular injections.

Botox gives you natural results

With Botox, you can still smile, laugh and frown — and look natural doing so. You’ll just have fewer obvious lines and wrinkles on your face. You won’t look frozen or unnatural with Botox treatments. You’ll look like you, just refreshed.
