When BOTOX® was first introduced for cosmetic use, it took the world by storm. It is one of the most popular methods of minimizing wrinkles temporarily. To anyone who is interested in getting BOTOX® but is hesitant because of all the rumors and myths that are making the rounds out there, you deserve to know the truth. It’s time to bust those myths so that you, too, can enjoy wrinkle-free skin!
Myth: It is not safe to use BOTOX®.
Fact: BOTOX® is FDA-approved.
BOTOX® was approved by the FDA in 2002 for use in cosmetic procedures. It is absolutely safe, granted that a qualified medical practitioner performs the treatment.
Myth: BOTOX® will make the face stiff.
Fact: You can still have a natural, more relaxed look.
This is probably the most popular myth. When too much BOTOX® is injected, there is a tendency for the face to look stiff and frozen. While some people prefer this frozen appearance, you can choose to acquire a much more natural look when getting BOTOX®.
Myth: BOTOX® is an invasive and uncomfortable treatment.
Fact: The treatment is non-surgical. Only a slight pinch and minor discomfort will be felt.
Myth: Fillers can be an alternative to getting BOTOX®.
Fact: Fillers are different from BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is designed to relax the muscles so that it does not pull on the skin too much, causing unpleasant wrinkles on the face. Fillers, on the other hand, fill in areas on the face that have lost volume.
What’s awesome about getting BOTOX® is the great look you acquire after the treatment. The wrinkles are gone, or at least minimized, and the face looks refreshed.
