The Botox cosmetic treatment is popular around the world — and for various reasons. However, there are some common misconceptions surrounding the treatment. Before ruling out entirely what Botox can do to for your skin, dispel some of those myths and know the truth.
MYTH: The perfect time to get Botox is when wrinkles appear.
Getting a head-start when it comes to Botox will bring better results than waiting for the lines to appear in the face. A lot of patients have been using Botox as a preventative treatment for wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by common muscle movements. Waiting until wrinkles are etched in the skin before getting Botox may bring less significant results.
MYTH: Stopping Botox treatments will make your skin look worse.
This is a false statement, as the skin will only go back to its original appearance before Botox when the treatment is stopped. Since the injections will prevent the worsening of facial lines, stopping Botox sessions will allow wrinkles to resume their normal development with facial movement. Good doctors tell their patients that Botox results do not last forever.
MYTH: Botox is a dangerous procedure.
Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat certain medical problems in 1989. Meanwhile, it has been approved for cosmetic purposes in 2002. Since then, it has been safely used by qualified doctors to satisfied patients all over the globe.
