Botox: It's Still No. 1 for Diminishing Frown Lines and Crow's Feet

More than 15 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in 2017, and nearly half of those were Botox injections. That number was up 2% from the previous year, and it continues to rise. That’s because Botox has effectively helped people on their quest to look younger without resorting to surgery for years. It may also be due to the additional benefits Botox offers such as treating migraines, excessive sweating, neck spasms, and overactive bladder.

Dr. Naima Cheema at Nexclin Medicine helps her patients approach health care and aesthetics from a holistic perspective. If you’re searching for a way to maintain your youthful appearance through healthy living and minimally invasive procedures, we can offer plans and treatments to help you look and feel good inside and out, including Botox

Here are a few reasons Dr. Cheema recommends Botox, and why it continues to reign as the top choice for eliminating lines and wrinkles.

Botox is safe and it works

Botox is one of the original nonsurgical cosmetic treatments and has a track record for being a safe and effective anti-aging treatment. Botox received its first FDA approval in 1989 for therapeutic use, and in 2002, the FDA approved Botox as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. Botox is still the only FDA-approved product that improves the appearance of those imperfections in both men and women. 

The proof is in the numbers — 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. 

Most important is the proven safety factor. Botox over the years has shown through countless clinical trials and personal testimonies that it is one of the safest products on the market for treating the signs of aging. If you’re considering an aesthetic treatment, and you’re concerned about safety, knowing Botox’s track record makes it easier to proceed with confidence. 

Botox requires no surgery and no downtime

Life has never been busier. These days, there’s barely time to juggle all the responsibilities of modern-day adults. The last thing you want to do is take time off from work and life to recover from a surgical procedure, such as a face-lift. 

Not only will it interrupt your schedule, but elective surgery like a face-lift comes with another downside as well. With surgery, you’re in for a long recovery period as well as the common risks that come with going under the knife, such as infection and bruising.

But Botox is different. Dr. Cheema precisely places the injections just under the surface of your skin and is done in a snap. It’s so quick, you can even schedule your Botox appointment during your lunch hour, and 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 a painful recovery. 

Botox gives almost immediate results that last a long time

Most people notice a smoother forehead and less prominent crow’s feet in the first 24-28 hours after their Botox treatments. Your results may vary, but you can generally expect the effects to last up to 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 over the years. 

Botox relaxes your muscles to stop the wrinkling

While you will likely notice the smoothing effects of Botox immediately, it also continues to work over time. Botox injections go below the surface of your skin to temporarily reduce muscle movement that causes wrinkles when you laugh, frown, or squint. When you reduce the muscle’s ability to make these expressions, those lines and creases appear smoother and less noticeable. Treatments of fine lines also help prevent deeper wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles so they won’t contract with repeated facial expressions.

Dr. Cheema and 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 when you do it.

If you’ve been curious about Botox but haven’t yet taken the step toward a more youthful-looking you, now’s the time to find out why so many people love and trust Botox to help them reach their aesthetic goals. It’s also a great time to find out why so many patients in Georgia trust Dr. Cheema to administer their Botox treatments. Call us today at 770-648-2959 or use our online scheduling tool.
