How to Ensure Natural-Looking Botox® Results
While wrinkles may be an unavoidable part of aging, not all lines and creases are created equally. Some wrinkles form because of the shape of underlying muscles. In the hands of the right practitioner, Botox® Cosmetic is the answer. 

All wrinkles are not created equally. While they can be due to a loss of elasticity, some wrinkles form because of the shape of underlying muscles. 

Some of the biggest culprits are expression muscles on your face. In particular, muscles between and beside your eyes and on your forehead can become “frozen,” giving you a concerned or tense appearance. Furthermore, deeper creases create shadows that make you look older. 

At New Tampa Wellness Clinic, located in Wesley Chapel, Florida, we’ve got you covered with Botox® Cosmetic. There’s a reason why it’s the most-requested aesthetic treatment in the country. When you know how to ensure natural-looking Botox results, it’s a face-changing experience. 

The expression muscle challenge

Dynamic lines change as your mood changes. It’s how we express ourselves and how others gain non-verbal insight into how we feel. Expressions are a natural extension of our thoughts and emotions. 

Muscles in your body move because of messages sent through motor nerves and chemical changes in the muscles. One set of changes contracts muscles while another relaxes them. 

Some expression muscles in your face can remain partly contracted. The most common locations for this phenomenon are on the forehead, between the eyes (the “elevens”), and beside your eyes (crow’s feet or laugh lines). 

Botox to the rescue

In 2022, there were nearly 9 million neuromodulator injection procedures performed in the United States. Botox is the first and market-leading of these products, which block the chemical action that contracts muscles around the injection point.  

First developed as a way to treat eye muscle spasms, careful injections of Botox cause problem expression muscles to relax. Instead of a creased and concerned-looking forehead, the impressions of worry subside into smooth skin. Your laugh lines resolve as your face regains a younger and more relaxed appearance. 

Ensuring natural-looking Botox results

You may have seen the artificial effects created by over-injection. It raised legitimate concerns about Botox and its ability to create natural-looking results. 

These extreme cases are a matter of Botox being in the hands of someone without the proper knowledge of anatomy to use this powerful aesthetic treatment properly. Each person’s face is unique, so a medical understanding of the expression muscles of the face ensures you get the proper applications in the correct locations without losing your ability to form normal expressions.
