BOTOX® Friend or Foe?
Posted on 06/22/2011 on behalf of Dr. Kenrick Spence, M.D., F.A.C.S.
A recent article in the New York Times, entitled "Looking Good, Feeling Less" implies that people getting BOTOX® have less ability to empathize with others, since their frozen faces make them unable to mirror the faces of those they are watching.
Seriously? First of all, the interpretation of BOTOX creating a frozen face is not accurate. BOTOX properly used softens expression leading to a more attractive appearance, this intuitively might lessen expressions of anger and frustration creating a more friendly interaction with others. Another BOTOX advantage, looking less tired is always a plus.
At Hillcrest Aesthetic Institute we avoid an overdone BOTOX look, thus enhancing your positive interactions.
Be smart when choosing where to receive your BOTOX in Orlando. Ask your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon not just how to eliminate lines, but how your BOTOX injections can positively enhance your expression.
