Better Than Botox?
We think so! Why inject Botulinum Toxin into your face when there is a natural alternative? After just 3 days we noticed a considerable reduction in forehead creases and frown lines. Slap a couple of these puppies on and see for yourself!
Continual repetitive motions such as frowning, squinting and smiling cause damage to the tissue that supports the top layer of the skin. Frownies are facial pads made from unbleached Kraft paper and a vegetable starch based adhesive that, when placed over facial creases for extended periods of time (3 hours +), gently re-educate the underlying muscles to assume their correct, relaxed appearance. The muscles below the skin become trained to release the crease that has developed and to relax into a smooth position. After using the forehead patch for 3 consecutive nights, we noticed a difference not only in appearance, but the forehead muscles actually felt more relaxed throughout the day.
Frownies are to be applied directly over wrinkles and are best worn at night and for as long as possible. They come in various shapes and sizes specifically tailored for certain areas such as frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and marionette lines (around the mouth). Frownies are especially ideal for reversing fine lines before they turn into wrinkles. And for those considering surgical correction of deep wrinkles, Frownies are a cheap and harmless option to try before expensive and risky injections of Botox – the risks of which include problems breathing, swallowing, and speaking and the spread of toxin effects, blurred vision, and drooping eyelids.
Frownies are available at Whole Foods, CO Bigelow, and at Amazon.com for around $15 for a box of 144 patches.
