5 Botox Facts That Will Surprise You 

Are you interested in trying Botox, but you’re holding back out of safety concerns or other reservations? Here are some of the most common myths about Botox dispelled and 5 facts about this cosmetic injectable that will surprise you:

1. Botox Isn’t Only Used To Relax Wrinkles

Did you know that Botox is now being used for so much more than just relaxing wrinkles? There is a growing list of uses for this popular injectable which include: 



2. Botox is Very Safe When Injected Properly

Many people worry about the safety of Botox due to the many myths surrounding this injectable. However, going to a board-certified plastic surgeon for your Botox treatments will ensure that the injections are carefully placed so you’ll see aesthetically ideal improvements, not a total loss of muscle contraction. 

In fact, leaving the skin at rest will help heal any damage and reduce the formation of further fine lines and wrinkles. 

3. Botox Results Are Always Temporary

Many people are hesitant to try Botox because they’re concerned that their faces will change forever, but the truth is that Botox results are temporary. The changes will last between 3-4 months, with longevity depending on the area treated and number of units injected. 

If you aren’t happy with the results of your Botox treatment, you can simply wait or a few months and you’ll notice that the effects will gradually disappear. You can then try Botox in another area, or write it off as a treatment that isn’t right for you. 

4. Botox is a Toxin, But That Doesn’t Mean It’s Dangerous 

Botox is made up of botulinum toxin, a chemical which causes the disruption of acetylcholine release, which in turn causes paralysis of the muscles in the treatment area - but it is highly controlled predictable paralysis. 

Your Botox provider has been trained in the administration of this injection and while there are some small risks involved, as with any cosmetic treatment, Botox will only affect the muscles in the treatment area and cannot lead to full-scale paralysis. 


5. Botox is Popular Amongst Men and Women 

While traditionally, Botox was highly popular amongst female patients, it definitely isn’t only for women, Men age the same way women do and have the same concerns about lines developing on their foreheads and around their eyes, and this cosmetic injectable is continuing to rise in popularity amongst male patients.
