Are you considering different Botox options but are weary of the myths surrounding the treatment? These rumours make it really difficult to make an educated choice whether or not to go through with it. Let’s clear the air and remove some of these stigmas around Botox treatments.
Myth 1: You can tell when someone has had Botox
We have all seen the Hollywood Botox treatments that have gone wrong, drooping eyelids, frozen faces and expressionless smiles. These Hollywood faces aren’t reality though, especially if you choose a highly skilled injector. Botox provides very subtle and natural results in patients, and they are amazed at the changes they see.
Myth 2: Botox isn’t safe
Since its approval by the FDA 10 years ago, Botox has been used on countless men and women for many different reasons. The treatment is very safe and very effective with the right injector. 41% of all cosmetic procedures were Botox treatments in 2013.
Myth 3: Botox results take weeks to see
The results aren’t instantaneous after you get the injection but typically you’ll notice the difference in a couple of days. The treatment will last for about 3 months for the average person and some people will notice the results for up to 6 months.
Myth 4: Botox is extremely painful
When people think of needles and injectable treatments they automatically assume the procedure will hurt. Many patients describe the procedure as “just a pinch” but most don’t feel the injection at all since the needle tip is incredibly small.
With more awareness about diet and health, our patients are not only making better choices today but also improving their quality of life long-term. We are always looking for ways to learn, grow and contribute to our patients.
