5 Botox Myths Debunked

Myth 1: Botox is toxic and unsafe.

Botox is completely safe for cosmetic use. It has been FDA-approved as an anti-aging treatment and is one of the most widely administered drugs on the market today. The misconception that Botox is toxic and unsafe is largely due to the fact thatBotox is derived from botulinum toxin, however, low dosages of this protein have been proven safe and effective for both medicinal uses as well as cosmetic.

Myth 2 : Wrinkles will worsen if you stop getting Botox. Botox is derived from botulinum toxin, however, low dosages of this protein have been proven safe and effective for both medicinal uses as well as cosmetic.

Botox isn’t a permanent solution to wrinkles, so as the effects of Botox generally fade away you will start to regain facial movement in the muscles before your next treatment. Gradually, the fine lines and wrinkles will start to return if you stop treatment altogether, so it’s possible you may never want to stop. However, if you choose to do so there wouldn’t be any permanent damage. In fact the reduced movement of the treated muscled prevents future wrinkles from forming.

Myth 3 : Botox injections are painful.

The needles are very thin for accuracy, and most patients experience little to no discomfort. Numbing cream can also be used during the treatment to ease any discomfort!

Myth 4: Botox Will Make Me look “Frozen”:

When injected by a skilled professional, Botox should never make you look frozen or emotionless. The right amount of Botox will not cause your face to look tight,, but instead, your skin will appear softer and more wrinkle freeng cream can also be used during the treatment to ease any discomfort!

Myth 5: A Facial Cream and/or Serum Can Do the Same Thing

Though there are some products that can help diminish wrinkles and fine lines, there are no skin creams or serums on the market today that can actually relax the muscles in your skin. Only Botox can do that. Creams and serums can only penetrate through a certain level of the skin’s dermis, however, when used together with Botox certain creams and/or serums can enhance your results making your Botox last a bit longer.
