Will Botox® Freeze My Face Forever?

For many women, lines and wrinkles begin to appear far earlier than it seems they should. When this happens, especially when you’re still young and vibrant, you may find yourself seeking out cosmetic solutions so that you can maintain your youthful glow. For years, Botox® has been a trusted solution to your aging concerns. However, many clients wonder if getting Botox® when they are young will mean that their face is frozen in place forever? This is a common concern, but one that we can answer very simply: no. Regardless of when you get Botox®, you do not have to worry about your face being stuck in one position. Allow us to explain.

Understanding Botox®

In order to understand why your face will not lose its natural range of movement, we have to understand how Botox® works. Botox® is considered a relaxant. This means that it relaxes the facial muscles that move to create the dynamic lines and wrinkles on the body. Botox® prevents the muscles from moving and creating those signs of aging that you are looking to avoid.


How Long Does Botox® Last?

Like other injections, Botox® is temporary. In most cases, our clients can enjoy their results for anywhere from four to eight months. The length of the results varies from person to person and is dependent on how quickly the injection is reabsorbed by the body. Ultimately, while we use Botox® to look younger and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, this should never come at the expense of facial movement. Your face should not appear frozen, at any time, as we seek to only enhance your appearance in the most natural way possible.
