BOTOX® is often misunderstood. There seems to be a stream of misconceptions and myths that have been fueled by the media. This can cause confusion and blur your decisions when it comes to defining whether the cosmetic treatment is right for you. So, to help clear things up, we’ve listed some of the most common BOTOX® myths and set the record straight.
1. BOTOX® will make your wrinkles worse once you stop treatment
This is one of the most common and persistent myths surrounding BOTOX®. It’s natural to see the effects of BOTOX® reduced when you take a break from treatment or stop altogether; however, your lines and wrinkles will not be worse off because of it. Your face will simply return back to its pre-BOTOX® state.
2. BOTOX® is just for women
Men, rejoice – BOTOX® is for you too! This is a myth that is often derived from the media, but actually, the reality is that more and more men each reach opt for BOTOX® treatment. BOTOX® is all about feeling confident, reducing or preventing the appearance of lines and improving your appearance in general. There’s no reason why men too shouldn’t want to prevent those dreaded frown lines from plaguing their faces. No one wants to appear angry when they’re not! It’s not about vanity, it’s a great solution for both women and men who would like an extra confidence boost.
3. BOTOX® is only used for wrinkles
Whilst we often associate BOTOX® directly with reducing wrinkles, it’s actually much more than that. Other uses include blocking sweat glands temporarily in those who suffer from excessive sweating. This is actually quite a common issue for lots of people. BOTOX® can also be used to help with the treatment of persistent migraines and helps to release some muscle tension that surrounds your face and head. In return, there is less strain on the nervous system.
