Botox has quickly become one of the most popular anti-aging treatments across the nation. Botox injections may sound scary, but in reality it is one of the most safest, painless and quickest procedures.
Northwest Aesthetics service providers have put together 5 Botox myths that we hear from our clients everyday:
Botox Will Make Your Face Unmovable – Your face muscles will probably be a little relaxed, but your face will not be frozen. You will be able to continue with most of your regular daily activities almost immediately and will see the full results within 7-10 days.
Results are Forever – Most Botox treatments last for 3-4 months, depending on the area that was treated. If you discover that you hate your treatment, the effects will wear off. If you love your treatment (which you will), we will be happy to continue giving you treatments. The more treatments you get, the more effective the results are.
Only Older Women Get Botox – Botox treatment is actually more of a preventative measure. When you start to notice lines that you’ve never seen before, that’s when you want to start receiving Botox treatments as it will help to prevent the formation of deeper lines. Waiting until your wrinkles and fine lines become deeper and deeper with age it will end up costing a lot more money and will be harder to treat. Men and women alike get Botox treatments in their early 20’s as a preventative measure, even if lines and wrinkles haven’t set in yet.
Anti-Wrinkle Creams Are Just as Effective – Lotions and creams don’t remove wrinkles and fine lines. Creams can’t be absorbed by the skin’s deepest layers, therefore, they only work on the upper layers of the skin. Despite claims, the only way to get Botox-like results is through Botox.
Botox is Dangerous –BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic providers know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
And in case you didn’t already know, BOTOX Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world!
