Myth: BOTOX Injections Prevent Wrinkles
FACT: BOTOX is a muscle relaxant, so it relaxes the muscles in the face. The result is skin that appears smoother and wrinkle free.
Myth: BOTOX Will Make Your Face Look Tight
FACT: Over-injection of BOTOX may cause the treated area to look tight, or swollen, but if you are using a licensed, reputable physician, this should not be a problem. The right amount of BOTOX will not cause your face to look tight, or frozen, as some describe, but instead, your skin will appear softer and wrinkle free. Myth: A Skin Cream Treatment Can Do the Same Thing
FACT: No skin creams on the market today can actually relax the muscles in your skin. Only BOTOX can do that, which is how BOTOX gives you that smooth, wrinkle free skin.
Myth: You Should Only Get BOTOX Once
FACT: Each treatment of botox injections lasts for about 3 months. You can continue to retreat, so long as you have had no side effects or reactions, and the area being treated is still responsive to the BOTOX injections.
Myth: BOTOX Injections Are Painful
FACT: BOTOX injections are no more painful than getting any other shot in a doctor's office, and they've even been compared to the feeling of acupuncture needles. There may be mild discomfort at the injection site, but it is rare that pain medication is required. - 3 hours ago
