Like with most extraordinary things in life, in social circles myth is as prevalent as fact. Oftentimes it’s a mere simple misunderstanding that leads to the build-up of rumors, soon to develop into myth, and Botox is not without its share of misunderstandings and misconceptions. As a treatment Botox does certain things very well, but there are also things that it doesn’t do. Here are a few of the most common myths surrounding a Botox treatment…
A common misconception about Botox is that it’s only effective against wrinkles that have appeared. But a Botox treatment doesn’t work within the skin but instead within the muscles beneath. And when muscle movement is the primary cause of forehead lines and wrinkles, prohibiting that movement before wrinkles have developed will only prolong or diminish potential lines and wrinkles from developing.
Piggybacked to this myth is the idea that a person can be too young for Botox, but the very idea that Botox can limit the movement of the muscles that cause wrinkles only makes a strong case for Botox as preventative treatment.
Another common misconception about Botox is that the results appear plastic and unnatural, but Botox is a subtle and natural approach to smoothing-out fine lines and wrinkles, and the results following a treatment provide a naturally vibrant and youthful appearance; there’s no such thing as a particular Botox look.
And the most prevalent myth is that Botox is only for women. But that myth couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, more and more men turn to Botox every day; it’s a quickly rising trend.
