Botox: Why It's Still Your No. 1 Solution for Crow’s Feet and Frown Lines

Have you tried Botox®? If your answer is yes, you know how it can transform your look and your confidence. But even if your answer is no, chances are high that you have a friend, family member, or coworker who has.

More than 7 million Botox procedures are done every year, and it’s the No. 1 minimally invasive cosmetic treatment in the United States today. It’s FDA approved to temporarily minimize expression lines like crow’s feet and frown lines to give you a fresher appearance.

Jessica Cannava, PA-C, and Innovative Medical of Garden City have partnered with New York Spine and Sports Surgery at our Garden City, New Jersey, office to offer the best in cosmetic injectables, including Botox. It’s time to find out why it’s still your top solution for pesky lines and wrinkles.

Botox is is the original wrinkle minimizer

Botox received FDA approval in 2002. It’s the first and only injectable treatment for crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines - and after all this time, it’s still the most popular.

Crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines are known as dynamic wrinkles. They appear over time, thanks to years of facial expressions. Your skin gets increasingly delicate with age, and frowning, squinting, and raising your eyebrows all crease your skin.

As you get older, those creases stick around as lines and wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are often deep-set and stubborn, but Botox is an effective solution to temporarily reduce their appearance.

Botox contains a purified neurotoxin. It temporarily relaxes the muscles just below the surface of your skin to smooth out moderate-to-severe expression lines and help you look more youthful.

Botox is one of the best-known and most requested cosmetic treatments because it really works. It addresses stubborn signs of aging, and its long history means you can be confident in the results you’ll achieve.

Is Botox right for you?

Millions of people trust Botox to boost their confidence and smooth out wrinkles, but is it the best cosmetic solution for you? Jessica and our team at Innovative Medical of Garden City can help you decide.

Botox is popular among people who already have moderate or severe lines and wrinkles, but it’s seeing a surge in popularity among younger people in their 20s and 30s. There’s no “right” age to start Botox treatment, and it can be a part of your preventive skin care plan even if you don’t have deep-set wrinkles.

Botox injections are convenient and quick. In fact, most appointments take about 10 minutes. Jessica or one of our injection specialists makes 3-5 small injections in your treatment area, whether that’s the crow’s feet around your eyes, the frown lines between your eyebrows, or the horizontal lines across your forehead.

There’s no downtime required with Botox. You’re free to go on your way once your injections are done, and you can expect to start seeing results in the following 24-48 hours.

When you choose Botox, you can be confident that you’ll still look like yourself, but with fewer noticeable wrinkles around your eyes or brows. Results can vary, but most people continue enjoying their results for four months, and you can choose to get Botox again if you notice those wrinkles coming back. 

Lines and wrinkles happen to everyone, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them. Find out what Botox could do for you. Email Innovative Medical of Garden City at info@innovativemdgardencity.com to book your Botox consultation today.
