Should you still be afraid of unnatural BOTOX looks?

Published on Jan 2nd, 2013 by Blog Admin

“I think she’s pretty, but I don’t want to look like…” is a comment our dermatologists still hear from patients in Boston.

While BOTOX has been used safely over the past 15 years in over 20 million people, many patients are afraid of the end result appearing “too plasticy,” or looking “too waxy.” This is an issue that can be seen in many current celebrities and perhaps an acquaintance or two.   Dr. Deanne Robinson

The goal of natural appearing BOTOX is to temporarily relax the muscles of the face, resulting in a reduction of dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. This approach will soften your look and provide you with a more youthful appearance. The older method of using BOTOX to “freeze” the face, so there is no facial expression or movement of the treated areas, can result in the waxy or plasticy look. Conservative use of BOTOX in desired areas such as between and around your eyes and in the forehead will substantially reduce wrinkles and lines of movement without giving you an artificial look. Instead of your friends asking you “what did you do to your face” following a BOTOX treatment, you want them to notice a relaxed and rejuvenated version of yourself, achieved through personalized and calculated BOTOX injections that avoid the over-treated look.

Consider booking an appointment with SkinCare Physicians if you are interested in discussing a natural appearing approach to reducing fine lines and wrinkles with BOTOX. You can also learn more about BOTOX on our website.

      We know of no relationship between the neuromodulators such as Botox and ALS or any neurologic disease.
      If Botox or similar meds are injected properly and with good judgment, it should not lead to unnatural looks.
      That’s why you want to have this done by experienced and wise physicians who are sophisticated injectors.
