BOTOX® is a well-known procedure, but due to its portrayal in the media and movies, lots of biased information has been produced, resulting in some men and women avoiding the procedure. To ensure you have all the correct information when deciding whether the treatment is for you, we’ve taken some of the most common BOTOX® myths and de-bunked them!
1. You will not be able to express any emotions
This must be the most famous BOTOX® myth of all time, and it’s thanks to TV and the media that it exists. Rumors tell us that when you receive the treatment, it totally freezes your facial muscles, which then makes it impossible for you to frown, smile, or express any facial emotions at all. Thankfully, this is completely untrue!
2. It is permanent
Typically, the majority of patients see an improvement in their facial wrinkles and lines within one week of treatment; however, the overall effects last for months at a time. This isn’t a permanent procedure, so if you wish for the results to last for longer, then you will need to have regular appointments.
3. It is toxic
Contrary to popular belief, when administered with the correct dosage, BOTOX® injections are totally safe. This isn’t a dangerous substance when used in the hands of a qualified professional.
4. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® are the same
It’s true that both treatments help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles; however, they don’t achieve this outcome in the same way. Dermal fillers work by adding volume to the facial tissue that provides you with that “plumpness” associated with youth, whereas BOTOX® injections work by relaxing the facial muscles that cause your wrinkles to form.
