Botox can improve your skin’s appearance and reduce signs of aging. Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care offers Botox treatments for wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. We understand many myths surrounding this cosmetic procedure exist, so we are here to debunk them and help you make informed decisions about your skincare routine. Here are the top five Botox myths debunked:
1. Botox Is Toxic
Some people assume Botox treatment is toxic because it involves Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botulinum Toxin Type A is a neurotoxin, but a Botox injection only contains a small dose of the toxin, so it’s not toxic to the human body. At Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care, we only use FDA-approved Botox to make sure our clients receive treatment that meets the highest standards of safety and effectiveness. We further enhance clients’ safety by allowing only experienced and licensed professionals to provide the injections. Our registered nurses will determine whether you’re an ideal candidate for the treatment before administering injections.
2. Botox Is Addictive
You may have encountered tabloids or headlines comparing Botox treatments to prescription painkillers. Some people assume that Botox is addictive because it has become a household name, with numerous celebrities booking continuous treatments. Botox doesn’t contain addictive properties. We have clients scheduling multiple Botox treatments because it’s highly effective in reducing signs of aging, not because it’s an addictive substance. Our Botox injections typically last 3-6 months, after which you can schedule follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
3. Botox Will Freeze Your Face
Some films have propagated this myth by having actors pretend to have no control over their faces after injections. Movies and TV shows are known to exaggerate these experiences for entertainment purposes. With our experienced team, you won’t need to worry about such exaggerated results. We use an appropriate dosage that allows you complete control over your face after treatment. Our Botox injections will relax your muscles, preventing them from contracting too much when you frown, smile, or frown. This shouldn’t fully inhibit your facial expressions.
4. Botox and Fillers Are the Same
The only similarity between Botox and fillers is that both injectables can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. These treatments are ideal for different parts of the face. We administer Botox treatments around the eyes and forehead and recommend fillers for areas below the eyes, like the lips and cheeks. Botox and fillers are also different in how they work. Fillers increase volume in the face, smoothing out wrinkles. Botox relaxes facial muscles, preventing them from contracting and forming wrinkles when you move your face.
5. Botox Treatments Are Time-consuming
There’s a common belief that cosmetic procedures require a lot of downtime for recovery. This isn’t true for Botox, as it’s a non-invasive treatment. We encourage clients to schedule roughly 30 minutes for their Botox injection treatment. This includes consultation time, as the injection process only takes approximately 15 minutes. You can receive your treatment and resume your day as usual while waiting for the results. Some people notice changes after 24-48 hours, but the full effects take roughly two weeks to become apparent.
