Botulinum Toxin – Busting Myths

Myths and Facts – Botulinum toxin (BOTOX®)

Myth 1

MYTH: The best time for anti-wrinkle treatments with Botulinum toxin is when the lines appear
FACT: If you can get ahead of the game, it may help you in the long run. Waiting until lines become etched into the skin means it’s much more difficult to smooth their appearance again. These treatments reduce lines and wrinkles formed by muscle movements like scowling, squinting, and raising eyebrows. Often by starting preventatively, our muscles can actually learn to not make certain expressions and contribute to worsening their lines. By not making certain expressions in the future, or making them less often, you may actually need fewer treatments, or need it less often.

Myth 2

MYTH: If you stop getting regular treatmentswith Botulinum toxin, it will make your wrinkles worse
FACT: No, They’ll just go back to the way they were before. If you decide to stop having treatments, you will slowly lose the relaxing effect of the treatments and will resume the normal development of wrinkles with movement. Your fine lines and wrinkles will not get worse. Treatment results are not permanent and last typically last four months. The results last a little bit longer for those undergoing injections at regular intervals over time. This is due to muscle atrophy as the muscles having been immobilised for a long period.

Myth 3

MYTH: Muscle relaxant treatment with Botulinum toxin is just for wrinkles
FACT: Not at all, the treatment of migraines involves reducing muscle tension creating less strain on the nervous system. Injections can also be used to temporarily block sweat glands to stop excessive sweating.

Myth 4

MYTH: Botox is something only women get
FACT: Jokingly referred to as “Bro-tox” more and more men are getting cosmetic skin treatments. Wrinkles can sometimes make men appear angry, not to mention older. Cosmetic skin injections can help soften up this look to just give a more approachable appearance, which can help men a great deal in business matters.
