3 Botox Myths Busted
BOTOX® Cosmetic and other similar botulinum toxins such as Xeomin® are popular treatments to help the face appear healthy and young. But many people may not understand exactly what Botox can and cannot do. Your dermatologist can help you decide if Botox is right for you. Be sure to discuss these myths and facts with them when making your decision.
Myth #1: I Should Wait Until I See Wrinkles Before I Consider Botox
FACT: Many plastic surgeons and dermatologists recommend being proactive with skincare options such as Botox. Using Botox as a preventative measure may actually increase its effectiveness. It can help you learn how to avoid placing stress on your face from frowning and squinting, which will lessen your chance of getting wrinkles and potentially lessen your need for future Botox treatments.
Myth #2: Botox is Only for Women
FACT: More and more dermatologists are treating men with Botox. In fact, some even call it “Bro-Tox.” The reason? Many men want to maintain their youthful glow just as much as the ladies do! Deep lines and wrinkles can make a man look angry or sad, but Botox treatments can help to quickly soften a man’s appearance.
Myth #3: Once You Get Botox, You Can Never Stop
FACT: Some people think that if you stop getting Botox treatments, your skin will look worse than it did before you began Botox. That’s simply not true. If you stop getting Botox, the worst that will happen is your skin will simply go back to looking the way it did before. Botox treatments do not make wrinkles any worse.
