Is Botox Safe?

Let’s face it: You’re ready to get rid of those annoying forehead lines and wrinkles. You’ve tried plenty of serums and moisturizers, but nothing seems to fade the appearance of frown lines that have started cropping up in recent years.

If you’re like most people trying to tackle signs of forehead aging, you may be a good candidate for Botox injections. But maybe the thought of getting injections – especially so close to your eyes – makes you feel a little cautious.

Is Botox Safe?

Rest easy, because Botox is considered to be extremely safe. In fact, it’s so safe that the FDA has approved Botox for multiple uses, including treating fine lines, crow’s feet, and even minimizing symptoms of migraines and hyperhidrosis (talk about multi-tasking!). 

In order to get FDA approval, Botox had to go through multiple clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy and safety at treating aging symptoms. From 1983 until 2003, Botox was only shown to […]

More specifically, what signs of aging do Botox injections target? VIEW OUR GALLERY

Botox is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that uses its active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A – to smooth away the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. The botulinum toxin (sounds scary, but it’s perfectly safe!) blocks the nerve signals that are sent by the brain to the corresponding muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the muscles are tricked into remaining relatively motionless.

As a result, the skin above the muscle area becomes much more relaxed, which helps alleviate the appearance of deep lines caused by brow furrowing, squinting, and more.

Botox is perhaps one of the most popular anti-aging injections, and for good reason: it has an almost-immediate effect on […]

Will My Botox Results Look Natural?

By now, you probably know that Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injectables on the market today. It’s no wonder – even when it was first introduced in the late 90s, Botox’s ability to smooth away the appearance of deep furrow lines on the forehead and around the eyes took the world by storm.

But with its rising popularity came another observation: When improperly used, Botox could lead to an unnatural, “frozen” appearance. From reality television to celebrity gossip magazines, it became all-too-easy to spot who went a bit too overboard with Botox injections. VIEW OUR GALLERY

Perhaps that’s why so many people are a bit nervous about their first Botox treatment. They want to harness the injectable’s ability to take years off of their appearance, but they don’t want to look “obvious” about it. Perhaps that’s why the most popular question about Botox tends to be: “Will my Botox results look natural?”

The answer largely depends on the person who is delivering the injection. Quite frankly, an inexperienced injectionist may end up injecting too much Botox, which means you may end up looking unnaturally frozen. That’s why it’s always recommended […]
