Botox ‘should be used sparingly’
Brits warned on over-use of Botox.
Shami Thomas, PR manager at Transform, said that many people can go too far when having these treatments carried out and it should not be the aim of men or women who have Botox injections to have frozen features.
“The majority of women we see having Botox don’t want or have their entire face frozen. It’s just certain areas that they want treated. That does not mean that they cannot show any facial expressions whatsoever,” she commented.
According to the Sunday Times, however, women who use Botox are unable to display the full range of emotions because of the paralysing nature of the treatment.
Indeed, a recent study carried out by David Havas, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, recently showed that Botox users struggle to frown, look angry or sad and may even be unable to show empathy.
