Are People Telling You That You Look Tired?

Are you a 1, 11, or 111? We’re referring to the frustrating vertical lines between your brows that occur over time. When you furrow your brow, if only a single line appears, then you’re a 1 with mild to moderate lines. If you furrow your brow, and the lines form an 11 or 111, then your lines will likely be considered moderate to severe.

Frowning, squinting, and concentrating are just a few of the reasons these lines appear when we repetitively use our muscles for those functions over time. As we lose elasticity in our skin, the lines remain, even when our muscles aren’t contracting. In addition to the lines between our brows, lines around our eyes (crows feet) and upper forehead area can also appear. These lines can make us look tired, overworked, and sometimes older than we actually are. This is why so many people turn to the trusted and proven BOTOX cosmetic.

BOTOX Cosmetic procedures are considered safe, quick, and effective.

As the only FDA-approved prescription medication of its kind, BOTOX Cosmetic is used in close to 80 countries worldwide. Since it’s FDA approval for cosmetic use in 2002, around 10.9 million vials of BOTOX Cosmetic have been sold in the U. S. alone. It has been extensively studied and researched for safety and efficacy.

BOTOX treatments are quick and easy—they take between five and fifteen minutes—which means you can zoom in and out for treatment over your lunch break if you want to. Plus, another great benefit to using BOTOX is the fact that the procedure requires no downtime.

How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?

BOTOX blocks signals from the nerves to the brain that prompt muscle contraction. It is injected into the muscles under the skin with a tiny needle, and within a few days to a week, the muscles begin to relax, reducing the appearance of the lines being treated. In some cases, the appearance of the lines disappears completely. Results vary depending on the severity of the lines and the dosage of BOTOX used and can last up to four months, and even longer for some.

Men and women turn to BOTOX for a number of reasons. What’s yours?

People often turn to BOTOX Cosmetic because they’re unhappy with their appearance, which sometimes includes crows feet and the 1, 11, or 111 lines. People also turn to BOTOX because not only does it help reduce the appearance of lines—it can also work as a preventative treatment for lines and wrinkles. In fact,  we are treating patients in their early 20’s who are looking to slow down the aging process and using BOTOX to prevent aging wrinkles.

Whether you’re a mature job seeker looking for your next job, you’re the mother of the bride for an upcoming wedding, or you’re newly divorced, BOTOX can melt away the appearance of those frustrating lines to boost your confidence for any event. Or maybe you simply want to look and feel your best for those selfies you love to take! Whatever your reason, BOTOX could be the perfect choice for you.
