Botox Myths & Facts

botox-myths

There are a lot of myths flying around about Botox, and I’m here to debunk them. Botox is a simple and super effective procedure that turns back the clock for a more youthful, yet natural appearance.  It is used to treat the forehead, in between the brows, and the eye area, and can even be done preventatively. Treatments are not expensive and are typically done every 3-6 months. Botox is injected directly into the muscle where it is completely absorbed. It works by blocking the signal that tells your muscle to contract, therefore holding the muscle in a state of relaxation.

  • Myth #1:

    Botox is Poison

    Truth:

    Botox is a purified protein that is FDA approved for cosmetic use. It has been used medicinally for over 50 years. It has been proven to be safe and effective.

  • Myth #2:

    Botox will make me look frozen.

    Truth:

    Botox does not have the capacity to “freeze” your face. It simply relaxes your muscles to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Myth #3:

    Everyone will know I’ve had Botox.

    Truth:

    The results of Botox are amazing yet very natural looking. You will look rested, relaxed, and younger but no one has to know unless you tell them.
