Botox Might Be Aging If Used Incorrectly

Can Botox Make You Look Older?

Most Botox users I know love the stuff because they feel fresher and smoother-skinned with it, but some users and doctors say that for women over 40, the drug can actually make you look haggard. Apparently, when overused or put in incorrectly, botulinum-based injectables can cause sagging, and we've all seen people who have too much and now just look totally unnatural.

To me, this seems mostly like a surfeit of the product being put in by physicians and aestheticians who don't pay attention to an individual's facial structure. But do you agree? From what you've seen, is Botox actually capable of aging people?

In my opinion, it's better to look old than to look like you obviously did something to yourself.

Scary! My mom is being pushed towards Botox as a potential fix for her chronic migraines, but this is just one more reason for her to resist.

I wouldn't say older, or younger. Botox, in my opinion gives a face an unnatural look and the skin a waxy appearance. It just looks weird.

I associate the plastic botox look with older women. So when I see younger women, like Kim Kardashian, with the same look, they appear older.

I'm inclined to agree. I have a friend who is beautiful, but decided to get botox injections in/around her eyes. Unfortunately, when you have your eyes looking like you're 18 again and the rest of your face looking like your 30-- well, all the "30" bits start to look more noticeable.
