How to Make Botox Look Natural

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

Botox is an incredibly versatile treatment that can subtly turn back the hands of time without invasive surgery. However, with the overuse of Botox in popular culture, many people worry that their Botox will seem unnatural or “look done.”

The good news is that natural-looking Botox results are entirely possible. In almost all cases, your doctor’s goal will be to give you subtle results that enhance your looks, not change them altogether. We’ve put together this guide to help you understand the 3 key steps you’ll need to take to ensure successful results.

1. Understand Your Goals

Before you head in for a consultation, take the time to think about what you really want out of Botox. Do you want a drastic, permanent solution to wrinkles and fine lines? If so, a facelift may be more your speed.

However, if you’re looking for subtle skin smoothing and contouring, Botox can help you achieve your goals. Just be sure to communicate to your doctor that you’re only looking for a small amount of botox.

2. Know the Best Places to Get Botox on Your Face

Botox is a highly-customizable procedure, meaning you can target different areas of your face depending on your goals. In general, it’s easiest to achieve natural results by targeting the forehead and frown lines. Botox for the corners of the eyes or the brow can provide natural results, but these areas are riskier. If natural results are your number one priority, it’s safest to stick to the forehead and corners of the mouth.

3. Find a Good Doctor

This step may seem obvious, but it can’t be overstated. Your doctor’s training and experience will play a pivotal role in achieving natural results. Before committing to botox treatment, take the time to ask your doctor plenty of questions, both about the procedure as well as their past experience. A good plastic surgeon will take the time to address your questions and concerns to ensure you feel 100% confident before moving forward with treatment.
