Botox cosmetic has gained a reputation of being the ultimate quick-fix for facial lines and wrinkles. It’s regularly used by many people to temporarily reverse signs of aging. But you’ve probably seen those images of celebrities with faces that look stretched and puffy after botox. This has caused many people considering the procedure often ask – Will botox injections make me look overdone.
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that is derived from the clostridium botulinum bacterium. When botox is injected, it blocks the signals the nerves normally send to the muscles. As a result, the skin doesn’t move, so the wrinkles become smoother and fewer.
Will botox injections make me look overdone?
Botox will only make you appear overdone if the product is overused. This is usually the case when the procedure is done by an injector that does not understand how the product works. However, in the hands of a skilled, and experienced medical professional, preferably a board certified plastic surgeon or a dermatologist, you can achieve natural looking results with botox treatment.
If too much botox is injected during treatment, or if it’s injected into the wrong part of the face, it can also result in an overdone look. Botox is designed for treating dynamic wrinkles, which are those wrinkles that form because of common facial expressions such as squinting and frowning. Botox is therefore ideal for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.
When botox is injected correctly, the results look completely natural, and patients are able to make normal facial expressions.
