Ask the Doctor: Paralyzed Look?

Article-Ask the Doctor: Paralyzed Look?

Q: Will I look "paralyzed" if I use it?a: No, but results also depend on the skill of the person who is injecting you. If done correctly, Botox makes you look refreshed and relaxed, by avoiding excess muscular activity in areas of overuse (between the eyes, forehead, crow's feet). One of the most common misconceptions is that it will either make the area look unnatural or won't allow expression. While that can happen if huge amounts of Botox are used, it is very uncommon, especially if you go to a reputable dermatologist for treatment.
