The Top Misconceptions About BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a type of injection that naturally weakens the muscles in the face, which can lead to dynamic wrinkles and fine lines.

While BOTOX® Cosmetic has become more popular over the years, there are still several myths that may be causing patients to rule it out as a treatment option. Keep reading to learn the truth behind some of the most common misconceptions about BOTOX® Cosmetic.

The Truth About BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments

Myth: It Causes the Face To Appear “Frozen”

One of the most common myths about BOTOX® Cosmetic is that, while effective, it tends to give people a certain “frozen” look. Or it makes them incapable of properly displaying emotions. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When performed by an experienced professional, they can administer the proper dosage in the correct areas to help you achieve your desired appearance. Furthermore, working with an expert team minimizes the risk of receiving too high of a dosage, which can lead to the unnatural appearance patients may be afraid of.

Be sure to research highly rated plastic surgeons, like Dr. Daniel Tresley, who have extensive experience helping patients achieve beautiful results.

Myth: It Completely Erases Wrinkles

Another misconception about BOTOX® Cosmetic is that it can erase and address all wrinkles. In truth, there are two distinct types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles appear while your face is totally at rest. Dynamic wrinkles only tend to appear while your face is in motion.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can help address both types, but it is more effective for reducing dynamic wrinkles, as the repeated motions of the muscles cause them. When you speak with Dr. Tresley, he can discuss your goals and concerns and let you know if BOTOX® Cosmetic is the right option for you.

Myth: I’m Too Young for Botox® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for patients 18 and older. While 18 may be too early to begin BOTOX® Cosmetic, many professionals actually suggest starting injections as soon as you begin to notice signs of aging. This is known as preventative botox and is often used to prevent signs of aging from progressing, helping you appear more youthful for longer.
