Botox in forehead - How do some women (like all the stars) avoid droopy brows, odd look and frozen forehead?

It's as much art as science
Celebrities - it's a whole another ball game. Most magazine photos may be photoshopped. Make up artists spend innumerable hours trying to hide flaws.
It is important that you go to an expert injector for Botox.
By the way, celebrities have the advantage of daily make up artists and photos that are air brushed and photoshopped.
To be sure, see two or more licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.
I hope this helps.

I want Botox but I don't want to look freaky!
I don't want to look frozen!
We've all seen the people with overdone Botox. They look expressionless and strange. Their faces may be frozen, their eyebrows may take on an unnatural arch. It's proof that you can have too much of a good thing. With my patients the goal if for them to look relaxed and rested. The goal is to have no wrinkles, but not at the expense of having no movement. I believe in a less is more approach. When patients come to me for the first time seeking Botox, I like to err on the conservative side. Once the full effect of the Botox has taken effect, if patients want to come in and have a little bit more injected then we can do that. I think this is preferable to injecting too much and having them have to wait 4-5 months for it to wear off.
Your face will most definitely have a lack of movement in the areas treated. The goal is to relax the muscles not paralyze them. When done correctly it will reduce the appearance of wrinkles while maintaining some movement and expression. I seek the maximum wrinkle minimization while maintaining some facial expression.
How can I find an experienced injector?
When considering Botox, I can't stress enough the importance of seeking out an injector with skill and experience. I recommend limiting the search to board certified Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists. Be wary of anyone who gives injections 'on the side'. You want an injector who has studied facial anatomy and will customize your injections to your face. An inexperienced injector may inject too much, or they may inject into the wrong muscles. Just a millimeter off can make a world of a difference. Some of these complications from Botox being administered incorrectly by untrained injectors can be very serious, even life threatening. Do you really want to put your safety into the hands of someone who has learned to do Botox during a weekend class? Just because the procedure is less invasive than surgery it does not mean it should be rushed into without proper research and thought.
