Millions of people worldwide have used BOTOX® Cosmetic to minimize facial wrinkles and maintain more youthful appearances. Despite its prevalence and popularity, many people are still wary of this treatment. Here, we’ll debunk eight common myths and misconceptions about BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

Common Misconceptions About BOTOX® Cosmetic

#1: BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections are Dangerous

While it’s true that BOTOX® injections consist of potent botulinum toxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to be safe and effective.

#2: It Will Give You a “Frozen” Look

When a “frozen” or expressionless look is the result, this is usually due to an improper dosage. This is why it’s important to work with an experienced practitioner.

#3: It Will Eliminate all of Your Wrinkles

All wrinkles aren’t created equal. While BOTOX® Cosmetic can help mitigate dynamic and static wrinkles, the latter may require more intensive treatment, such as laser or fillers.

#4: Stopping BOTOX® Cosmetic Will Make Your Wrinkles Worse

While repeat movements can cause your wrinkles to return, if you stop treatment, your wrinkles will not be any more defined than before you started.

#5: BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Are Painful

Before receiving your injections, we apply a numbing cream to the regions receiving treatment to minimize pain and discomfort.

Many people choose to continue receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic because they like their results. However, the treatment has no addictive properties. You can stop whenever you want with no side effects or complications.

While most people love the more youthful and radiant appearance provided by BOTOX® injections, you’re results are not permanent. If you don’t like them, BOTOX® Cosmetic only lasts between three and four months.

#8: BOTOX® Cosmetic and Fillers Are Interchangeable Treatments
