Have you ever wanted to try Botox to get rid of the wrinkles on your face? If your answer is yes but you still haven’t gone through the procedure, it’s possible that one of the reasons holding you back is the myths you have heard about it. Today, we will debunk some of those myths!
Myth #1: Botox injections are painful
Most people report only mild discomfort during a Botox injection. The needles are very fine (thin) and inject a tiny amount of liquid. This means you should only feel a slight pinch during an injection. The number of injections varies for each condition and person. Multiple pinches may be uncomfortable, but they only last for a few seconds. Most people tolerate Botox injections well. Source: Healthgrades
Myth #2: The best time for Botox is when the lines appear
If you can get ahead of the game, it may help you in the long run. As Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon Grant Stevens explains, “Botox is being used more and more frequently by people trying to do preventative treatments. Waiting until lines become etched into the skin means it’s much more difficult to smooth their appearance again.” He adds that Botox is often used for lines and wrinkles formed by muscle movements like scowling, squinting, and raising eyebrows. “Often by starting Botox preventatively, people and their muscles can actually learn to not make certain faces and expressions and contribute to worsening their lines. By not making certain expressions in the future, or making them less often, you may actually need less Botox or need it less often.” Source: Realself
Myth #3: Botox will freeze your face
Not true. “If you can’t move your face, it hasn’t been done correctly,” says Dr Nabet. “It’s all about where you put it and how much is used. If botox is performed well, it should be impossible for the untrained eye to tell you’ve had any. The key is a subtle, understated approach, keeping expression in the face.” Source: HelloMagazine
