Unfortunately, because Botox is such an extraordinary treatment its outsized reputation can bring up with it droves of myths. Sometimes it’s simple misunderstand that leads to the rumors, and Botox is not without its share of misconceptions. Botox is a wonderful treatment, safe and approved by the FDA, but there are also things that Botox does not do; although, if you look around online you may find people purporting certain things to be true that aren’t…So, here are a few of the most common misconceptions about Botox, and a few of the truisms of this wonderful treatment.
One common misconception about Botox is that it’s only effective against existing wrinkles. But this myth is quickly debunked when you realize that a treatment of Botox is given into the muscles beneath the skin. When wrinkles are primarily caused by muscles movement, and the Botox prohibits the muscles from moving, it’s easy to see why Botox is both a treatment for current and potential wrinkles.
It’s also a myth that a person can be too young for Botox. But because Botox is a terrific treatment for current and potential wrinkles, it’s a wonder why any adult would want to wait until wrinkles begin to appear. It’s not so strange to think of Botox as a preventative treatment.
And the results of Botox, which often jokingly get tossed around as plasticky or superficial, are anything but those things. Botox results are subtle and natural-looking, smoothing out those fine lines and wrinkles. And the myth that Botox as a treatment is only for women is a complete falsity. Statistically, more men are undergoing Botox treatments than ever before.
