Botox® Cosmetic for Relaxing Frown Lines

There’s a reason BOTOX® is the most popular and trusted non-surgical cosmetic treatment in America – and that’s because it’s incredibly effective at relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines.

FDA approved Botox is a neuromodulator used for smoothing deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time.  For young adults, BOTOX® Cosmetic is also used in a preventative series to stop the aging process before it starts.   Neuromodulators are bacteria produced proteins purified for medical use that prevent nerve signals in muscles from contracting and relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles.

Patients love BOTOX® because it’s:

  • Effective at relaxing moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes and those “11” forehead lines.
  • Subtle – when treatment is done by the right physician, you look like you, only with fewer noticeably facial wrinkles.
  • Quick and easy procedure; it takes about 10 minutes in the Midwest Dermatology office.
  • Immediate improvement – wrinkles start to relax 24 to 48 hours after treatment.

What Else Should I Know About BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Any adult who wants to lessen the appearance of lines in their face can relax and feel secure when they choose BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, but they should be aware that:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic delivers the best results when it’s administered by a board-certified dermatologist who is experienced with the procedure, knows where to inject the BOTOX® and how much to use.
  • Minuscule needle sticks are used to deliver BOTOX® under the skin and block the muscle activity that causes wrinkles and lines.
  • After BOTOX® treatment, your skin looks smoother and softer, and patients look happier.
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment lasts between three and six months – it’s much like coloring your hair. Regular treatments can maintain the results.

When Should I Begin BOTOX® Treatment?

Seeing persistent lines and wrinkles that don’t go away when your face is at rest, may mean it’s time to consider BOTOX® treatment.

Some people start treatment in their 40s, while others start in their 30s. It all depends, because skin’s appearance is connected to so many different factors — including age, environment and lifestyle.

Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is typically used to relax away wrinkles, some physicians use it with younger adults who want to get an early start on wrinkle prevention. BOTOX® relaxes the muscles early, which prevents people from scrunching their eyes together and forming deeper “11” lines.

Dysport® cosmetic injectable offers another natural-looking solution to facial wrinkles and lines. A neuromodulator similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic,  Dysport® utilizes Botulinum Toxin A to temporarily block muscle activity that contributes to the formation of wrinkles and folds.  Now patients have a choice when it comes to relaxing and softening facial features.   Dysport® injectable is FDA approved and a non-invasive solution to looking younger without surgery.  Additionally, Dysport® can be used to treat wrinkles in BOTOX® resistant patients.

While Dysport® is great for treating wrinkles, fine lines, and creases, it may also be used to prevent permanent frown lines from forming in younger patients. Similar to preventative BOTOX®, Dysport® can be used at the first signs of facial wrinkles to help combat the earliest signs of aging.
