Botox and other injectables have been around for a long time, but there are still myths that persist about this procedure. Many people are interested in trying it out, yet some have reservations about the safety and effects of Botox. I hope this article helps you understand the truths about this service. There is another great injectable, too, that I would like to highlight, which is Dysport. It is just like Botox, although it is slightly less expensive. This article covers both substances.
Myth 1: Botox is a poison. Some people mistakenly think that Botox is toxic, however most people have now realized the falseness of this claim. With Botox, the amount in the injection is extremely mild and not enough to do any harm to you. It is safe and effective to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and even can be injected under the arms or in the hands to cure excessive sweating. It is qualified dermatologist will inject the right amount in the right places for you.
Myth 4: Botox is painful. This is a big fear that we hear from many patients, but rest easy, there is no cause for concern. Botox injections involve a needle, which is likely why patients think it will be painful. In fact, the needle is extremely tiny, and the injection makes such a small impact, that it’s really no big deal. You can always request an anesthetic cream to be applied before the procedure, and a good Med- Spa will always comply with your wishes. The pain is minimal, but that is a good op- tion if you are worried about any pain.
Myth 5: Botox can cause droopy eye- lids. “Ptosis” or drooping eyelids is a po- tential side effect of Botox, however this is rare, self-limited and treatable. We en- courage all potential Botox and Dysport candidates to always have this procedure done in a safe environment, in a doctor’s office, never at a Botox party or anywhere that isn’t properly licensed. Botox and Dysport can create a whole new energy to your face, stop excessive sweating and re- ally help you to look your best.
