7 Common Myths About Botox Injections

Feeling good about your appearance can give you the self-confidence to take on the world. Smile lines and wrinkles are common complaints that arise as we age. Thankfully, there are ways to limit the visible signs of aging, including filling fine lines and using Botox injections to limit the appearance of frown lines and more. If you’re considering Botox injections, you’re in good company — according to The American Society for
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s been the most popular non-surgical procedure in the United States since 1999. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of misinformation out there about Botox. Before making a decision, it’s important to know exactly what you’re signing up for. Read on as we debunk the seven most common myths about Botox injections.

1. The results are immediate

You won’t see results immediately after your injection. It typically takes about three or five days for the treatment to start working. You’ll need to wait a week to 10 days to see the ultimate results. Difficult to address problems often require multiple treatments.

2. It’s permanent

Botox injections aren’t permanent. They typically last anywhere from three to six months. After that, your muscles will regain the ability to move, and your lines and wrinkles will become visible again.

3. Botox is only for women

Individuals of all genders and sexes can benefit from Botox injections. Many male-identifying individuals have been satisfied with the results of injections to soften frown lines.

4. You have to wait until lines are visible to begin treatment

Many dermatologists recommend getting started with Botox before you have wrinkles and lines. Regular Botox injections can prevent you from frowning and developing forehead wrinkles and other lines.

5. Botox is only for minimizing wrinkles

Botox is employed to address a variety of conditions — it’s regularly used to lift eyebrows, soften jawlines and reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches.

6. I had a facelift — I don’t need Botox, right?

Many surgeons suggest using Botox after facelifts to help maintain your new youthful look. Botox can help slow the development of further lines and wrinkles.

7. My wrinkles will get worse if I stop using Botox

After the injection stops working, your lines and wrinkles will simply return to the way they looked before the treatment. If you’re not happy with your appearance at that point, you can always speak with your physician about another sequence of injections.

These myths are easily debunked for a reason. Although some might see botox as a bad thing, there are many positives that help many people not only with their confidence but with how they feel.
