5 Myths About Botox®

Myth 1: Botox® injections are painful

Most patients describe Botox® injections as a slight pinch or say that they hardly felt the injection at all. 


Myth 2: Botox® injections lead to a frozen face

Many people think that getting Botox® injections will make them lose the ability to emote or make facial expressions. This is a myth; the treatment relaxes the muscles at the injection point. With a skilled injector, you will still be able to display the entire range of facial expressions including smiling, frowning and appearing surprised.


Myth 3: Botox® is only for effective for removing wrinkles and improving facial lines

Botox® is used for a range of medical conditions and was first used to treat strabismus, a problem with eye muscles. There are many medical uses such as treating migraines, back/neck pain, TMJ conditions, and hyperhidrosis just to name a few.


Myth 4: Wrinkles will worsen if you stop getting Botox®

Botox® will not worsen wrinkle formation but instead wrinkles will slowly return to how they were initially, prior to Botox® treatment.


Myth 5: Botox® treatments are toxic

Botox® has been FDA approved for a number of uses. With over 20 years of use for a range of different conditions, Botox® has a long and well establish safety history. It would take dose of more than 100 times the average dose given for a cosmetic use for Botox® to be toxic.
