Top 5 Botox Myths

Botox is a drug made from botulinum toxin that’s used medically to cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin. Visible results are often seen within three days of treatment, and effects can last for up to three or four months. It’s one of the most popular anti-aging procedures worldwide, yet it still has many misconceptions surrounding its use.

TOP 5 Botox myths

This article will address five of the most common Botox myths:

  1. Botox treatments are extremely painful: actually there’s just a slight pinching sensation that lasts for a few seconds. You don’t need any anaesthetic during the procedure as a very fine needle is used to inject the tiniest amount of liquid, and the pain associated is quite minimal.
  2. Botox is toxic and unsafe: Botox has a long and well-established safety history with over 16 million treatments having been performed since it was first introduced. It’s completely safe for cosmetic use as no long tem side effects have ever been reported over the past 20 years.
  3. Botox is only for women: more and more men are getting Botox to help soften looks and prevent anger lines! It’s an excellent anti-ageing treatment for both men and women, the only difference being that men have stronger facial muscles and may need a higher dosage.
  4. Botox treatments lead to facial muscle loss: procedures simply enhance expressions rather than erase them completely. Facial expressions such as smiling and frowning are still able to be displayed normally as long as you’ve had treatments performed by a trained and skilled physician.
  5. Stopping Botox makes your wrinkles worse: it won’t – you’ll just slowly lose the relaxing effect of the treatment and they’ll go back to how they were before! Remember results aren’t permanent, so discontinuing use will slowly return muscles to pre-treatment looks.

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
