Botox: It's Still the Go-To Treatment for Getting Rid of Crow's Feet and Frown Lines

At KeyLife MedSpa in San Antonio, Texas, we're Botox experts.

We may not be able to stop the years from passing by, but at KeyLife Med Spa in San Antonio, we can erase those lines and wrinkles that come with it. 

We have many nonsurgical options that can help you look and feel younger. But when it comes to erasing those crow’s feet and frown lines, Botox® is the go-to treatment. It’s quick and effective and provides lasting results. 

The popularity of Botox

If you had any doubt that Botox wasn’t the go-to treatment, let’s go over some numbers. According to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 7 million people have Botox injections every year. That’s up 845% since 2000. 

Not only that, but Botox has been the No. 1 nonsurgical treatment of choice in the United States for more than 10 years. People choose Botox for their cosmetic treatments 2.5 times more than fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion, which are the other nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that round out the top five most popular treatments. 

To put it into perspective, Botox was in the No. 1 position with 7.4 million treatments in 2018, while fillers were in the No. 2 position with 2.6 million. 

How Botox works

Everytime you squint or scowl, the muscles cause your skin to fold. This creates lines and wrinkles. By temporarily stopping this action, we can stop the wrinkles. It only takes about 24 hours to take effect, and Botox can keep your crow’s feet and frown lines away for up to four months.

Botox is also quick. We can have you in and out of the office in 30 minutes or less. You only need six injections for your crow’s feet and five injections for your frown lines. The needle we use is very small, so the procedure is nearly painless.

There’s also no downtime following your injections. You can even cover up any redness at the injection site with makeup. However, we do ask that you not massage the injection area or engage in strenuous activity for at least two hours following your injections.

Repeat the process for lasting results

Botox may be a temporary treatment for moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines, but with repeat injections, we can make your results last longer. Typically, Botox injections keep lines and wrinkles away for 3-4 months. But repeating the injection can thin the muscle under your skin and therefore increase the longevity of your treatment.

We recommend that you come to the office for your next round of Botox injections as soon as you notice your lines and wrinkles returning.  

More options with Botox 

In addition to eliminating crow’s feet and frown lines, we also use Botox to reduce the appearance of forehead lines and smile lines. You can also combine your Botox procedure with other treatments, such as injectable fillers, which we also offer here at KeyLife Med Spa, to give you an even more dramatic look.

Botox continues to be one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments in the country for a simple reason: It works. To schedule your Botox treatments and erase the years from your face, book an appointment online or over the phone with KeyLife Med Spa today.
