I tried the Frownies brand facial patches on my forehead for 30 days to see how these compare to my previous Botox treatment. As someone with deep forehead creases, I was ready to put these to the test in the Summertime when I'm most likely to squint and scrunch my forehead. Did Frownies work? Are wrinkle patches a good Botox alternative?
In my video review, I document the whole process from application to my daily activity to up-close shots of my forehead to check the results along the way (since, even though I'm young, I did have actual divots in my face to correct). A part of me focuses on reviewing these wrinkle smoothers as a standalone product but also comparing this to what you'd get with Botox injections. Lastly, I breakdown cost and do a price comparison because life is expensive.
There are many perks to having an at-home product that forces your facial muscles to relax. Non-invasive is perfect for those spooked of needles and having any time of solution injected into you. Injections are a medical treatment that come with possible negative side-effects and you signing consent forms. Going to appointments take time and gas (money). Not to mention that sometimes you need to follow up with a dose adjustment (2nd appointment) if your eyebrows become uneven.
If you do choose Frownies, watch this video because I experimented with the application to see what works the best to correct the frown lines.
If you are interested in Botox injections, I documented my experience of getting 20 units (fairly low dose). What makes my video unique to others out there was that I do a full breakdown of what it feels like for the first 14 days which is the time period it takes for it to set in. Numbness, headache, other sensations... I tell all for those who are nervous and squeamish.
