When it comes to non-surgical treatment to reverse the signs of facial aging, Botox leads the industry. While Botox is a temporary solution, it can bring drastic improvement to deep lines and wrinkles that develop around the eyes and mouth. The downside to Botox, however, is that it cannot be immediately reversed or undone if you get poor results.
Botox is a neuromodulator, it is designed to temporarily relax the targeted facial muscle or weaken its pull in order to stop the expression that is causing the wrinkles. Although there is not a product to remove Botox or reverse its effects on the facial muscles, you are not necessarily “stuck” with a botched Botox job.
An experienced facial plastic surgeon or specialist with a profound understanding of muscular anatomy and facial dynamics can help to manage and improve the adverse results that you may have gotten from a less experienced Botox injector. These undesirable and often “unnatural” Botox results can include the following:
- Asymmetric or strange smile
- Brow drooping and brow ptosis
- Heavy, small or narrow appearing eyes
- Wavy lines or asymmetry in the forehead
- Surprised look
- Spock look
- Clown eyes and clown brows
- Facial asymmetry
- Rainbow lines or persistent arched lines over the lateral eyebrows
- Awkward eyebrows
In many cases, the approach to Botox repair or revision will involve the weakening of another set of muscles, which are pulling in an opposing direction. Alternatively, the physician may elect to weaken the contralateral side alone or in conjunction with treating the problematic side. The goal is to attain better symmetry and improved overall appearance. It may also involve specific facial fillers to create more natural and balanced facial features.
Why Cheap Botox is Often Bad Botox
In the hands of a skilled and experienced injector, Botox can be something of a wonder drug to turn back the hands of time. Since it has to be repeated every few months, however, it is not uncommon for patients to look for the lowest Botox rate possible. This can be a costly mistake, as those that offer “cheap” Botox can be either inexperienced or unethical. Low-priced Botox may also be a result of diluted Botox solution or even expired product. This poses serious risks to patients and clients who have resorted to drastically discounted injections.
