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.
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 to get injections from a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, as these specialists understand facial structure and how Botox injections will affect your appearance.
In addition, to see a board-certified expert, we recommend asking to see a portfolio of Botox patients. The portfolio should give you a good idea of how you’ll look after Botox injections with a specific plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
At Awaken Aesthetics, we approach every patient like the individual they are. We tailor our Botox injections to your specific facial structure, so you can enjoy youth-enhancing benefits while still looking like yourself.
