How to Ensure Natural-Looking Botox® Results

How to Ensure Natural-Looking Botox® Results

More than 5 million Botox® procedures are performed every year in the United States. Botox is FDA-approved for some of the most common facial wrinkles, and it’s consistently the most popular cosmetic injectable among American adults of all ages.

But you’ve seen news stories and social media posts about cosmetic injections gone wrong. If you’re curious about the benefits of Botox but you’re worried about ending up with an unnatural-looking, frozen face, you’re not alone.

The key to natural-looking Botox results starts with your provider. Botox is a medical procedure, so it’s important to find a licensed provider with experience in cosmetic injectables. At Natura Dermatology in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Will Richardson, MD, and our aesthetic team have over a decade of experience in administering Botox.

How Botox smooths wrinkles

Youthful skin contains collagen and elastin — two elements that give it volume, structure, and bounce. But as you age, your skin changes. Collagen and elastin production start declining as early as your 20s, and that’s when fine lines and wrinkles begin to form.

There are two main types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles develop as skin loses volume, while dynamic wrinkles form with repeated facial expressions. Movements like raising your eyebrows and squinting crease your skin; over time, those creases settle in.

Botox tackles tough dynamic wrinkles on the face. The FDA has approved it to treat moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. It can address bunny lines and marionette lines, too.

This cosmetic injectable contains a purified neurotoxin called onabotulinumtoxin A. When it’s injected into your wrinkles, this ingredient relaxes the muscles below your skin’s surface, gently smoothing away those wrinkles.

Enjoy a naturally youthful look with Botox

Every aspect of Botox injection is customizable. When you choose an experienced team for your Botox procedure, you ensure that your results look naturally beautiful. Dr. Richardson talks with you to learn more about your aesthetic goals and performs a visual assessment of your skin to help you decide if Botox is right for you.

If you choose Botox, Dr. Richardson determines where to make your injections as well as how much Botox to use in each injection. He takes a personalized approach to treatment to ensure that your results are natural-looking.

The goal of Botox isn’t to freeze your face. Dr. Richardson and our team are proud to protect your ability to show emotion on your face — but without the look of those bothersome lines and wrinkles.

After your injections, you can expect to see results develop over the next 24-48 hours. Botox isn’t permanent, so if you don’t like how it makes you look or feel, the results fade in about four months. If you are happy with your look after getting Botox, we can do follow-up injections to maintain your smoother skin.

Millions of Americans have trusted Botox for one simple reason: It works. If you’re ready to find out how Botox could enhance your natural beauty and erase the look of wrinkles, contact our team at Natura Dermatology. Call our staff, or book your consultation online now.
