5 Botox Myths Debunked
As the famous skin care product TVC says, “Age is Just a Number”. There are many reasons why women want to look younger, either to look good for the hubby, or for a reunion with her friends or a much needed boost in confidence. When women explore options for looking younger , often, Botox usually falls last in the list .
This is because of the misconceptions that surround the treatment despite its popularity as an anti-aging treatment.Its overuse and association with the word “toxin” has given it an unfortunate reputation.
You probably only think of it as the reason why aging movie stars’ face stiffen up and become expressionless. But that’s not the whole truth at all.If that were so, why would doctors continue to prescribe it to people –people who show no ill effects.
What’s the truth about this procedure?Here are five common Botox myths set straight:
Botox is a synthetic product
Botox is short for Botulinum toxin, a natural protein. Protein is one of the building blocks of the body, used in every organ, muscle, and tissue. A form of Botox is also used to treat migraines and other ailments. It’s totally safe for the human body as long as it’s applied correctly and in right amounts by a professional.
Botox will make your face stiff
You don’t have to worry about your face looking stiff or “fake”when Botox is applied properly and, most importantly, in moderation. The worst examples are often the result of vanity or hubris rather than the fault of Botox itself. Make sure that you only have board-certified dermatologists perform the procedure for a safe enhancement that looks natural! And listen to their advice!
Botox works instantly
Although referred to as the “lunchtime injection,” Botox treatment will actually start working one to three days after the procedure. It will take about a week or two for the enhancement to fully show.
There is no difference between Botox and fillers
These two treatments act in different ways to create a similar effect. Botox clears away wrinkles by relaxing the muscles in your face. Fillers, on the other hand, fill up the creases in your facial tissue.
You won’t be able to stop using Botox once you start
If you decide to stop using Botox, theeffects simply wear off after about three months. It has no permanent or damaging effect on your muscles.
