Botox proves effective in treating frown lines on the forehead and various other wrinkles
Nationally known dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie understands the importance of looking and feeling beautiful. That is why she provides several treatments at her dermatological practice to reverse the signs of aging, which can include reducing the appearance of frown lines on the forehead and other areas on the face. Dr. Downie has personally found Botox to be effective in treating those lines that once added years to her appearance.
The natural process of aging can leave unwanted lines on the face. Sun exposure and smoking also can expedite the process of aging. Squinting and various facial expressions cause the muscles to contract and can leave wrinkles over time. Thanks to Botox and the skills of Dr. Downie, patients in Montclair and beyond can turn back the hands of time without surgery or significant amount of downtime.
At her practice, image Dermatology®, Dr. Downie uses Botox to treat vertical creases between the eyebrows called frown lines. These unwanted creases can make patients appear angry or sad when they are actually happy. Botox is also used to treat lines above the brows (forehead furrows), creases near outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), and lines between the brows (glabellar lines). Botox is a neuromodulator composed of a purified protein. The prescription medication is injected into the areas you wish to have treated. A treatment session is typically a few minutes to an hour and can be completed on a lunch break. Botox begins working within three to four days after the injection and can take up to two weeks before it is in full effect. Patients can enjoy the appearance of more youthful-looking skin for three to four months or longer.
