How Can I Make Sure My Botox Looks Natural?

Back To Blog Overview

If you’re looking for a way to refresh your appearance for going back to the office, back to school, or for summer vacation, Botox is a great, affordable, and highly effective way to look your best, most refreshed self. But for those just now getting started with Botox, it’s important to remember that not everyone performs Botox in the same way, and not everyone will get you the natural-looking, beauty-enhancing results you deserve. Here’s how to make sure your first Botox treatment is natural-looking and satisfying.

What is Botox?

For first-timers who may not know about Botox and what it can do for your facial wrinkles, Botox is a neuromodulator, a substance that inhibits muscle activity in the areas it’s injected. By relaxing and preventing certain muscles from moving, Botox reduces the signs of aging and smooths out wrinkles throughout the face. This also helps prevent further wrinkles from developing or worsening, as the muscles aren’t able to crease the skin like they would without Botox.

How Can I Make My Sure My First Botox Injection Looks Natural?

The key to Botox injections is a balanced, conservative approach in most cases. Ideally, after Botox injections, you should still have your full range of facial expressions, just less intense than without Botox. This should result in a reduction or elimination of wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet, helping you look refreshed but otherwise normal to others.

Best Tips for Getting Natural-Looking Botox at Any Age

These days in New Jersey, you can get Botox from it seems like just about anyone: your dentist, gynecologist, or even eye doctor. However, you should choose your Botox provider carefully, as their technique is the most important factor for achieving natural-looking Botox results. Here’s what to ask to make sure your provider is qualified and experienced enough to provide you the best results.

Ensure They Understand Facial Anatomy

It’s critical that the person injecting you has intimate knowledge of the muscle tissue throughout the face. Every person’s wrinkle concerns are different, and a one-size-fits-all approach can’t perfectly solve each person’s issue. One thing you can bring up to gauge an injector’s expertise is to ask about your risks for having a spocked vs. drooping brow. Pay attention both to the answer itself and how they answer it to get a read on their confidence and experience.

Look at Before And After Photos of Previous Patients

Qualified Botox injectors should have a portfolio of satisfied Botox patients that they can show proof of their natural-looking results. Feel free to look at patients who had different areas injected than the one you’re interested in, but take special note of people who look like you; what do their results look like?

Find Out How Long They’ve Been Injecting

The last thing you want from a Botox provider is to be a test subject someone is learning on. Ask about how long their business has been providing Botox, how long they’ve been injecting, and how many Botox injections they perform each month or year. Choose someone with vast experience and many years of practice for the lowest risk of unsatisfactory results.

Complement Botox Results With Other Injections

Although Botox is a highly satisfying procedure people get on its own, it is frequently used in tandem with other wrinkle relaxing formulas and dermal fillers to create more comprehensive facial rejuvenation results. Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are all wrinkle-relaxing formulas similar to Botox that we use in certain circumstances to fine-tune a person’s results.

Dermal fillers like Restylane can help further accentuate wrinkle reduction in certain areas of the face, such as undereye hollows, lines around the mouth and lips, and in the forehead. Fillers provide a simple way to restore smooth, volumized skin and provide structure where the skin may have lost some due to aging.

Master Injectors

The injectors at Reflections are all doctors with a minimum of over five years’ experience injecting Botox and attaining excellent results. This level of expertise means you have the lowest risk of being over-treated and having bad results due to a lack of knowledge of how these formulas work and how they’re best used in specific areas.
