Facial Expressions After Botox

Our Tacoma Botox clinic’s staff often receive questions about showing emotions after Botox injections. This is due to the idea that one’s face is paralyzed after treatment, which is, thankfully, not exactly true. Of course, Botox will reduce the activity of certain muscles, to help “relax” the wrinkles above them and also impede further wrinkling; this is what makes it so effective.

That said, Botox is administered very carefully to particular muscles, and usually in extremely small amounts. By working with an injection specialist as experienced as the team at our Tacoma Botox clinic, it is possible to customize your treatment to make sure you are still able to show a range of emotion while enjoying the anti-aging benefits of Botox.
