Whether you’re new to Botox or a frequent Botox receiver, you’ve probably heard a few Botox myths along the way. At Deux Rosé Beauty Refinery, our professional injectors are here to help you feel safe, educated and well-prepared prior to your treatments. If you’re ready to learn more about frequent Botox myths, keep reading.
Botox Myth #1: Botox is toxic.
If this were to be true, many medical spas would not be in business. Botox is both a protein and a neurotoxin. Despite what some people say, Botox is not capable of causing damage to your nervous system. When Botox is being injected, a minuscule amount is used for cosmetic purposes and is incapable of causing any significant damage. If you feel unsure, remember that Botox is FDA-approved and can only be dangerous if used in excessive amounts, just like any other medication.
Botox Myth #2: Getting Botox hurts.
Many of our patients tell us that they are quite surprised at what little discomfort they feel during their Botox treatment! A tiny needle is used for Botox injections, so a fear of needles shouldn’t hold you back. The actual Botox application itself only takes a couple minutes and most patients report minimal (if any) discomfort or pain.
Botox Myth #3: Botox is the cure for all wrinkles.
As much as we would like for this to be true, it is unfortunately another myth. While Botox is commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles in your face, it is not a solution to all facial wrinkles. Botox is great for treating smaller, dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, bunny lines and your frown lines. For larger, more static wrinkles, those can often be treated with various fillers. To determine which treatment might be best for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation.
Botox Myth #4: Botox entirely freezes your face.
Despite how Botox is commonly portrayed in movies, it actually does not entirely freeze your face. If Botox is administered correctly by an experienced injector, you’ll still be able to make facial expressions while minimizing your wrinkles. However, if you are a patient who likes a more “frozen” look, that is always an option as well. Prior to your treatment being administered, your nurse injector will discuss your aesthetic goals with you.
