Will My Face Look Natural After BOTOX® Treatment?
For most people, the goal of cosmetic treatments and procedures is to look younger and more desirable. However, many patients are also interested in keeping their work discreet and looking as natural as possible. Award-winning plastic surgeon Dr. Saba Motakef and the expert team at Motakef Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Anaheim Hills, CA share in patients’ desires to achieve both beautiful and natural-looking results. Read on to learn more about one of our most popular treatments – BOTOX injections – including what results you can expect and how to achieve the most natural-appearing BOTOX results possible.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a widely popular injectable wrinkle relaxer that is designed to smooth out dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Unlike static lines – which are often deep lines or folds that are the result of aging – dynamic lines are primarily caused by repetitive muscles movements and facial expressions. Some of the most common concerns that can be improved with BOTOX include:
- Forehead lines and wrinkles
- Brow lines
- Glabellar lines
- 11 Lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Lip lines
Does BOTOX make you look fake?
One of the most common misconceptions about BOTOX and other injectable wrinkle relaxers is that using these products will make the patient appear frozen, plastic, or overly tight. In reality, the enhancements made with BOTOX injections can look exceptionally natural when performed by an experienced injector. Furthermore, patients can choose how subtle or dramatic they’d like their results to be. During your initial consultation for BOTOX in Orange County, our qualified medical injector will evaluate your areas of concern and discuss your goals before recommending the most appropriate approach and the right number of BOTOX units for you. Even for patients who desire a more dramatic transformation, Dr. Motakef and our renowned team will use the highest level of precision and strategy to ensure their BOTOX injections produce beautiful, smooth, natural results.
Will people know if I get BOTOX?
There’s no doubt that BOTOX is one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic treatments across the country today. In fact, you probably know at least one person that regularly uses BOTOX, though you may not realize it! This is because the results of BOTOX – when performed properly – can be smooth, subtle, and natural-looking. If you are concerned about keeping BOTOX a secret, it is important to understand that your results may take up to 4 – 7 days to become fully apparent. After this time, the medication will have worked to temporarily paralyze the muscles and relax overlying wrinkles on the skin’s surface, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful look that appears natural and not forced overnight.
How long does BOTOX last?
For most patients, the results of BOTOX last about 3 – 4 months before repeat injections will be needed. Oftentimes, patients report their BOTOX lasting slightly longer with each subsequent round of injections.
