Botox is undoubtedly one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market, but a common misconception people have about botox is that it does not look natural. That’s understandable, since there have been many examples of botox faces that look frozen and unnatural.
What exactly is botox and how does it work?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that is used to temporarily smooth frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. These lines develop as a result of repeated muscle contractions related to expressions such as frowning, squinting, and smiling. When botox is injected into the underlying muscle, it limits muscle movement, and as a result, wrinkles become less noticeable over time.
Can botox look natural?
Botox can look natural, but it’s important to have the procedure done by a licensed, trained injector that is also an expert in facial anatomy. Providers that have the necessary skill and experience know exactly where to inject botox, as well as the required dosage.
Botox can certainly help maintain a youthful look, but if too much of it is injected, or if it is overused, it makes the face appear unnaturally smooth and super-tight. When botox is properly done patients should have fewer lines, and still look attractive.
Proper application is an important key to getting subtle, natural-looking results with botox. In addition, botox results look far more natural when patients don’t have droopy brows, and are still able to lift their eyebrows.
