Myths About Botox: Debunked

If you're seeking Botox in New Jersey, you might be doing a lot of online research and may come across misinformation. The internet is filled with myths about Botox. Today we will debunk these myths and answer any concerns you may have. 

Myth #1: Botox Will Freeze Your Face
We've all cringed at shows like "Botched" or seen tabloid photos of Botox gone wrong, but is that real life? In all actuality, when administered correctly by a professional, Botox can look natural and refined.

Myth #2: Botox Isn't Safe
Botox has been used for decades as an anti-aging treatment and is considered safe by the FDA. The misconception is that Botox is a botulinum toxin, even though it's just derived from a protein within botulinum toxin. This protein is at a low enough level where it cannot cause any harm.

Myth #3: Men Can't Get Botox
If you're a male seeking Botox in New Jersey, you may feel some hesitation in pursuing the procedure due to cosmetic procedures typically being associated with women. This couldn't be further from the truth! Men and women both age, and many men prefer to soften the lines in their face for a younger look as well. It should be noted that men may require more Botox injections due to stronger facial muscles than women.

Myth #4: Botox is Only for Face Wrinkles
While Botox can most definitely handle facial wrinkling, it can also tackle other cosmetic complaints. Patients use Botox to remedy chin dimpling, create an eyebrow lift, and raising corners of their mouths as they begin to droop. Botox can also be used to treat migraine headaches for frequent sufferers as well as excessive sweating. 

Myth #5: Just Anyone Can Administer Botox
This is probably the most dangerous myth of all! While thousands of people receive Botox safely every day, Botox procedures are done in a physicians office by a licensed professional. This prevents any medical and aesthetic complications.
