Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in North America. You have probably seen pictures of celebrities that make it fairly obvious that they had botox treatment. Sometimes their faces look frozen and their brows have an unnaturally low dip. This is often due to an improper amount of botox administered by the surgeon. The overall result of your botox is often the result of your surgeon’s skill as well as how often you undergo the procedure. In order to have the optimal effect, the proper quantity of Botox must be used.
The best way to make a botox procedure work for you is to choose your surgeon wisely. A good cosmetic surgeon should be certified, experienced and up to date with the latest surgical techniques.
Botox should not be approached as a one-size-fits-all remedy. Botox procedures should be properly customized to the features of your individual face. Ideally, the surgeon would perform the procedure in accordance with your face’s shape, balance, the muscles you exercise most frequently, your lifestyle and your goals. A skilled Botox surgeon will do a thorough assessment of your situation before proceeding with the operation.
As with most things in life, moderation is the key to making the most of botox procedures. Make sure not to overdo the amount of botox you do, and you should consult with your surgeon to decide when the next course of treatment will be. To be on the safe side, it is better to ask your surgeon to inject a light amount for the first time, and increase in the subsequent sessions if necessary.
Your surgeon will most likely recommend using botox in combination with other treatments such as skin resurfacing. This can help to maximise the effectiveness of botox and keep it subtle.
It is important to have a good appreciation as to what Botox can do for you and what it can’t. When you appreciate the limitations of botox, you will not be inclined to overdo it in the hope of getting a certain result. This is why it is important to talk to your surgeon about what type of treatments you can undergo as a complement to botox or even as a substitute. Sometimes the appropriate treatment may not be botox but another type of treatment that may be recommended by the surgeon.
