Botox Mistakes Even Smart Women Make

Special Botox Alert: Let’s face it, when it comes to getting Botox, it’s a jungle out there.

Ugly Botox is all too common. You see it on television everyday: it’s that completely

unnatural frozen look, or worse, where the poor woman looks like she had a stroke, one

side of her face completely different than the other.

The good news, Botox is not a cookie-cutter procedure and in the hands of an artist, it can

create a marvelously natural look that takes years off your face and makes you look more

refreshed and relaxed. In my opinion, the goal of Botox is “no wrinkles, not no

movement!, You want to look rested…not “botoxed”.

Botox must be administered by a licensed medical professional such as a Doctor or

Registered Nurse, but the differentiating factor should not be the title of MD or RN,

rather their experience in Botox coupled with both frequency and artistry. Great Botox

requires steady hands, the eye of an artist, and the passion to get it perfect. Don’t be

fooled into thinking a doctor does it better. Often times, doctors, dentists even, are doing

this “on the side” for extra money, so though they know the precautions to botox

administration, but the expertise is only acquired through repetition, not through “extra or

on the side work” and the artistry is, well, that is born. The aim is to capture a person’s

natural expression in a relaxed state, but with allowance for movement.

Another thing to remember is, excessive Botox relaxes the forehead too much, which

results in a heavy feeling and a drooping of the forehead and eyebrows. There is a real art

in figuring out how to adequately relax the muscles so that it looks natural. Too much is

no good, and not enough is also no good.

Lastly, the number one scam to avoid is people charging per facial area i.e. forehead or

crow’s feet, rather than charging per unit of Botox administered. Every area takes a

different amount depending on the person. Always pay per unit. It’s simple. When you

buy meat you pay per pound, not per who is eating it. Everyone uses a different amount,

save your money, pay per unit. Conversely, botox that sounds too cheap and too good to

be true is. Be skeptical. Botox is expensive, no one gives it away. Research your

injector, meet the injector. First thing I like to observe is his or her Botox, how do they

look natural or frozen. If you like what you see, proceed.
