Botox "Lite" : Overcoming the Frozen Face Stereotypes

"Frozen face” is a term of caution coined by the media for celebrities who have apparently overdone Botox treatment and wound up with oddly smooth foreheads and a smile that doesn't reach the eyes. Unfortunately, the entertaiment industry is so concerned about the overuse of Botox among actors that it was reported that producers and directors are refusing to employ those who have fallen under the thrall of the so-called pretty poison.

Nicole Kidman have seemingly overdone Botox in the past, with the Oscar winning actress admitting -"No surgery for me. I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again."

What is Botox "Lite" ?

Botox "Lite", also commonly known as "Baby Botox", "Mini Botox" or "Micro Botox" is the refined technique for solving the "frozen face" problem representing the Botox cliche. The idea behind Botox "Lite" is that the doctor administers just enough Botox to relax the facial muscles without paralyzing them. Botox "Lite" employs a very specific technique designed to preserve the patient's normal facial movements and expressions but at the same time is effective to soften unsightly lines and wrinkles. The key is to take the edge and severity off wrinkles without making the patient look plastic.

Celebrities tend to be fans of Botox "Lite" as they need to be as expressive as possible for their acting career while still maintaining a youthful look. Those receiving Botox for the first time will also be more receptive to the idea of having Botox "Lite", especially if they are still mulling over the pros and cons of conventional Botox treatment.

If you run into someone on the street, and they ask you who does your Botox, it might indicate that the Botox results are unnatural. With Botox "Lite", bystanders should not be able to tell if you have received Botox, but instead look “fresher, natural and well rested”
What are the Limitations of Botox "Lite" ?
The downside of Botox "Lite" is that results of this subtler approach do not last as long as the conventional Botox treatment, and touch-ups must be scheduled more often for maintained results. Generally, Botox "Lite" may last from one to three months, depending on the severity of wrinkles and the condition of the treated areas. As stated before, lines and wrinkles do not typically disappear completely. A patient should still expect to have lines or wrinkles, but the creases are softened and less deep compared to without any Botox at all.
Regardless of how much Botox is injected, it is still a medical treatment. So, before you book in for the procedure, be sure to seek a consultation with a qualified medical doctor who is an experienced Botox injector. Do insist to have the procedure performed in a registered clinic to ensure that you are in the best hands.
