Botox has been around for years, and is still one of the most popular anti-aging treatments. But there are still plenty of misconceptions floating around. The truth is, you probably know several people who are getting Botox treatments… And you don’t even know about it! People tend to be tight-lipped about their anti-aging treatments, and that’s why you’ll still hear these myths.
“You’re too young to get Botox.” Wrinkles and lines in our complexions are caused by repeatedly making the same expressions, such as frowning, squinting, or scowling. But Botox relaxes the muscles of your forehead. That’s why many people start gettting Botox treatments in their late twenties or early thirties. When you start preventing treatments early, those lines and wrinkles won’t have a chance to set in and become deeper!
“You’ll look frozen.” It’s true that in the early days of Botox, some practitioners could be a bit heavy-handed with the injections. But we’ve developed techniques that allow us to relax the muscles of your face and prevent wrinkles, without creating a stiff or frozen look. You will just look more pleasant and less stressed.
“If you start getting Botox, you can’t ever stop.” Nope, you can stop any time! While your lines will show up again, once your muscles are able to contract and make certain expressions once more, they won’t look any worse than before. And you can resume Botox later if you want.
“Botox is just for women.” Actually, plenty of men are getting Botox treatments too! They’ve realized that Botox helps them in the professional world, in the dating scene, and in many other settings. Men want to feel youthful and confident just like women.
