BOTOX® has debatably been the most popular cosmetic treatment in recent years. However, any cosmetic treatment often has misconceptions and myths surrounding it. This misinformation can make people hesitant to get treatments that may be beneficial to them. Let’s take a look at and debunk common misconceptions about BOTOX so you can better understand if BOTOX treatment is right for you.
BOTOX Is Only for Wrinkles
BOTOX is commonly used to treat facial wrinkles, but it is a common misconception that BOTOX doesn’t have other applications. BOTOX is not just a cosmetic treatment and can be used for functional purposes. BOTOX has been shown to help with muscle spasms, certain bladder issues, excessive sweating, and certain types of migraines.
BOTOX Is Dangerous and Toxic
This is a common misconception because BOTOX is derived from a botulinum toxin that has been purified. The amounts used in BOTOX are not just a purified form, but the amount is in low and safe dosages. BOTOX uses its paralytic properties to block chemical signals from reaching treated muscles. This helps relax the muscles and stops them from contracting. Relaxed muscles help with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while blocked chemical signals help with conditions like excessive sweating.
BOTOX Is Painful
BOTOX is a minimally invasive treatment that requires no surgery. BOTOX is administered through an injection with a fine needle and is generally well tolerated. Thankfully, any discomfort is brief and quickly dissipates. BOTOX does not require any downtime, and you can return to your daily activities right after treatment. In some cases, a topical numbing cream could be used to make the experience more tolerable.
