Many potential patients may just be toying with the idea of getting Botox to correct unwanted signs and symptoms of aging in the face, but they never actually consider it. Why? This is usually because of the false information that run around the rumor mill. By only relying on hearsays and whatnot, it is, of course, inevitable for you to shy away from the procedure.
However, we give you a list of the most common Botox myths as we try to debunk them once and for all. Our patients deserve to know only the truth.
Myth: Botox is poison.
Well, in some way, this is true, and yet in most ways, it is but a myth. Botox is indeed derived from a toxin called Clostridium botulinum that is responsible for botulism, but to say that it is poisonous is not true at all. When it is given in proper amounts, Botox can actually be beneficial for the person with visible signs of aging.
Myth: Botox can paralyze your face.
You may hear it from your neighbors or wherever that Botox can paralyze the muscles of your face, resulting to a loss of facial expressions. However, such info is a hoax. Botox is even approved by the FDA to be given as treatment for facial lines and wrinkles and has satisfied numerous patients throughout the years.
Myth: Botox causes severe side effects.
It is true that Botox injections can cause swelling, bruising, and redness to the treated area, but such symptoms are only mild and temporary. Usually, our patients experience the peak of its side effects within about 15 to 20 minutes following the injections, yet these signs dissipate right after.
