Botox®️: Why It’s Still No. 1 for Banishing Crow’s Feet and Frown Lines

Wondering what to do about your ever-deepening crow’s feet and frown lines? Seek out the No. 1 treatment.

Botox® has been the leading nonsurgical solution to unwanted facial lines for years. And it’s not just women who are opting for this injectable. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that nearly a half-million men in the United States had the procedure done in 2016. And there’s a reason why — it works!

At Hayes Endocrine and Diabetes Center, we pride ourselves on providing this high-quality aesthetic service to our patients in Nashville, Tennessee. We offer the top solutions for your cosmetic concerns, and our staff goes out of their way to ensure you receive a warm welcome and are made to feel safe to ask any questions you may have.

How does Botox work?

Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin A. Dr. Andrea Hayes injects Botox into the soft dermal tissues of your face at the targeted group of muscles, and the injectable temporarily causes these muscles to become paralyzed.

As the paralysis occurs, the tissues and muscles responsible for your deep facial lines and wrinkles relax, which leads to the smoothing out of your skin and producing that sought-after wrinkle-free look. No anesthesia is required for the procedure.

The market now boasts several other injectable options, such as dermal fillers. But Botox was the first and it’s still No. 1. It’s the only FDA-approved product to reduce moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. And Botox is now being used to plump up the appearance of your lips as well.

What does it take to get Botox, and how long do the effects last?

The entire process of getting Botox takes less than 30 minutes. However, the effects last 3 to 4 months. You begin to see results in about a week, but it’s about two weeks before you see the full effects.

We recommend that you stop consuming alcohol in the week leading up to the procedure. Our professional team takes your medical history to learn which medications you’re taking, but you should stop taking aspirin and all anti-inflammatory drugs at least two weeks before you start your treatments to keep bruising down.

Is Botox safe?

Botox must be administered by a qualified medical professional. When administered by a trained and skilled doctor, you should experience no major side effects. The only discomfort you might endure includes slight bruising at the side of the injection.

Are you tired of worrying over those worry lines on your face? You’ve heard about Botox, but perhaps you want to talk to someone in person about your own aesthetic goals and clear up any concerns.

We’re more than happy to sit down with you to tell you more about why Botox is your No. 1 choice for banishing those deep facial lines. Schedule an appointment with us by calling the office or using the online request form.
