What is Botox™ and will I get a ‘Frozen’ Face?
Botox™ is a manmade injectable product that relaxes the muscles it is injected into. It is a great product to use for anti-wrinkle treatments. It is used to reduce movement of the muscles thereby reducing dynamic lines (lines and wrinkles created during the movement of muscles), such as the ‘fork’ or crinkles many people get when frowning or raising their eyebrows.
No, you won’t get a ‘frozen’ face when using Botox™, so long as it is administered by a professional who understands correct dosages to give to enable some natural movement within the area it is applied.
But I’ve seen people with ‘Frozen’ Faces after having Botox™ treatment?
Yes, it is true that having too much Botox™ regularly injected into the same areas can give the appearance of a ‘frozen’ face. However, at Aesthetics Life this is not a look we want to provide our patients with. When Botox™ is administered in lower dosages, at the correct intervals, it can provide individuals with a fantastic age-defying effect, whilst still allowing some natural movement in the area to show facial expressions. I mean let’s face it, we don’t all want the inability to frown but we do want those pesky lines that meet in the middle of our eyes to go away so that we look and feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
A ‘frozen’ face doesn’t necessarily mean a youthful look. Too much Botox™ can also have the opposite effect to the desired result, and make an individual appear older. This is because it can look obvious that they have had a treatment and so often subconsciously makes others wonder what their age is.
At Aesthetics Life we believe in natural looking rejuvenation treatments.
Can I still move my forehead after Botox™?
Yes, you will still be able to move your forehead after Botox™ treatment, however it will move a little less and a little differently as the muscles in the area are relaxed.
For example, if you have had 3 areas of Botox™ – frown lines, forehead and crow’s feet – then you may notice that when you raise your eyebrows, the entire length of your eyebrows no longer move up. This is because you have also had treatment in the frown area between the eyes, and so these muscles are relaxed. You may then notice that the outer edges of the eyebrows raise more than the inner edges. This enables those pesky forehead lines not to appear, but your expression to still show.
