4 Botox Myths, Debunked

Botox is one of the most sought-after non-invasive treatments for unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. However, there are also many misconceptions surrounding this popular injectable. Read on for popular Botox myths, debunked!

MYTH #1: You don’t need to think about Botox until wrinkles appear

More and more people are beginning to use Botox as a preventative measure instead of waiting for wrinkles and lines to appear. Once lines are fully formed in the skin, it is much more difficult to remove them. If Botox is used to prevent lines from ever becoming an issue, you are more likely to look younger, longer, and require less Botox in the future.

MYTH #2: Discontinuing the use of Botox will result in more severe wrinkles

This is a common misunderstanding about Botox. If a patient receives Botox injections, but decides to discontinue use, their wrinkles will simply return to the way they were before injections. When you stop receiving Botox injections, you are simply losing the effects slowly over time, resulting in the normal development of facial wrinkles. If you have been receiving Botox for a long time, results may last a little bit longer before wearing off.

MYTH #3: Botox is only for wrinkles

Although Botox is largely known for its cosmetic uses, can be used for issues that are not cosmetic as well. It can also be used to treat migraines, help block excessive sweating, and may even be able to help those who suffer from depression.

MYTH #4: Botox is only for women

The popularity of Botox for men is rising so rapidly, that it has been dubbed the name “Brotox.” Today, men want to look as young as they feel just as much as women do. Also, a younger looking appearance is often perceived as helpful in the workplace.
