The ONE surefire way to avoid “Frozen Botox Face”



When Botox first came out, it was both cheered and jeered. Wrinkles be gone? Yay. Botulinum injected into the face? No way. As time went on and usage increased, fears of the product have largely disappeared.

Now you can’t throw a stone without hitting someone who is singing the praises of this popular age eraser. But questions still remain. Let’s address a few here.


How can I avoid Frozen Botox Face?


The answer to this question isn’t surprising. The way to freeze wrinkles, but not emotions, is to find a skilled medical doctor with the knowledge and experience to know exactly where to place the Botox. Ask how many years of experience your doctor has with Botox. (We recommend finding someone with at least five years of experience.) Talk with the doctor about what you trying to accomplish, and what you want to avoid. If they don’t hear you out or have enough time to listen, look for someone who will.


Why does Frozen Botox Face happen?


Unwanted results can occur due to improper dilution of the product, quantity errors (using too much or too little), filler interactions and injection errors. Usually it’s the latter that causes Frozen Botox Face, or FBF for short. This ties back to the previous question. The doctor’s credentials are paramount.


What do we now know about Botox that we didn’t know then?

Since Botox reached mass market appeal over a decade ago, we have learned plenty more this product. Probably the biggest revelation is that Botox need not be used solely as a spot treatment for wrinkle minimization. Different ways to use it for cosmetic enhancement have been introduced, including the Botox Facelift. This is where small amounts of Botox are injected all over the face to tighten the skin, smooth the forehead, lift the brows, shrink pores and tighten the cheeks and jowls. It’s an overall refresher and the one true way to avoid FBF once and for all as it’s injected into the skin, rather than the muscle.

Is long-term usage of Botox safe?


Yes. Botox has been on the market since 2002. And, contrary to popular belief, it is not just an aesthetics solution. Botox is used to treat excessive sweating, migraines, jaw clenching, neck spasms, overactive bladder, and much more.


And remember, FBF is actually a misnomer. Nothing on your face actually freezes, and all results are temporary. But “Frozen Botox Face” is catchier than “Temporary Paralysis of Facial Muscles Face”, now isn’t it?
