Are you curious about having Botox® Cosmetic injections to soften wrinkles, but skeptical of how natural the results will look? You are not alone. Many people are interested in the wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox yet hesitate because they have seen faces that look frozen or artificial after treatment.
Here, Dr. Joyesh Raj puts your worries to rest by explaining how a qualified Botox provider can reduce wrinkles and help you maintain a naturally attractive appearance.
Understanding How Botox Works
Botox is FDA-approved to minimize the appearance of the following:
- Moderate to severe forehead lines
- Crow’s feet – i.e., fine lines at the outer corners of the eyes
- Frown lines – vertical lines in between the eyebrows
Botox is designed specifically for “dynamic” wrinkles, or wrinkles that are related to the movement of your facial muscles. When you frown, squint, laugh or use your face to communicate emotion, certain facial muscles engage. Over time, the repeated muscle movements can create creases, lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin.
When injected into selected facial muscles, Botox temporarily relaxes them. As the muscles relax, the associated dynamic wrinkles become less visible, and the skin looks naturally smoother and more youthful. On average, the effects of Botox last about three to six months. Repeat treatments are recommended to maintain the effects.
Getting Natural Results with Botox
One of the common misconceptions about Botox is that it interferes with natural facial expressions and the results always look artificial.
Rest assured that as long as Botox is injected by an experienced, qualified provider, it will not disrupt your ability to emote or express yourself. The injections will relax selected muscles, but it will not paralyze them. You will still be able to make all of your normal facial expressions.
The key to achieving naturally beautiful results is to select an experienced, skilled provider with an exceptional understanding of dynamic wrinkles and the related facial movements. At Raj Plastic Surgery, Dr. Raj and our injectors have many years of experience and a track record of success.
