Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world for about 20 years now, although, there are several myths surrounding it. Applied by an experienced professional with the adequate technique, Botox provides a refreshed, rejuvenated glow for the skin along with a youngish look for the face. Now, we dispel all the doubts in connection with Botox and clear all the myths away.
Botox can be used anywhere on the face
In fact, in case of a qualified injector, Botox can technically be used on any parts of the face. Although, there are certain areas where other fillers seem to be more effective. While Botox is perfect for the frown lines and crow’s feet on the upper face that are the result of over-activity of the facial muscles, the area of the mouth and cheeks is better to be treated with dermal fillers to gently smooth out the lines.
The effects are immediate
Unfortunately, no, they do not. Of course, results are different for all patients but Botox starts to activate in 24-48 hours after the treatment. Then, first changes appear in 3-5 days and it can take 7-10 days to reach the final condition and see the actual results. After achieving the required look, Botox lasts for about 3-6 months in case of an average person.
Botox is only for wrinkles
Botox is an absolutely versatile filler that is suitable for much more desires than just treating wrinkles. It is appropriate to lift the eyebrows or the corners of the mouth, soften the jawline or physically change the anatomy of the face. Besides cosmetic purposes, Botox is efficient to relieve migraine by reducing muscle tension and also beneficial for excessive sweating among other therapeutic applications.
Botox makes you look frozen
The aim of Botox is to provide youngish, rejuvenated look but unprofessional hands can fail to inject the right amount, leading to an overfilled effect. However, changing the face permanently is impossible with the use of Botox. As mentioned above, Botox lasts up to 3-6 months, hence muscle movements and red blood cells keep turning over, and Botox gradually wears off over time.
Botox is painful and unsafe
Botox is often considered to be poisoning due to the Clostridium Botulinum Bacteria it contains, which is usually linked to botulism. Despite that, the two have nothing to do with each other, since Botulinum Bacteria in Botox is a specifically manufactured purified extract. It has been used for 20 years and is completely safe, and also painless if done well with care and expertise.
