Botox is the top choice for both men and women who want to look younger and refreshed without having to go under the knife. Unfortunately, Botox has a tangle of rumors and myths that can confuse people of its true benefits. Speaking with a plastic surgeon can eliminate those myths and help you understand why Botox is so popular.
Truth: Facial expressions only become distorted in the case of an overdose or if the injection was misdirected. Men and women need to get their injections from a qualified physician in order to prevent this from happening.
Truth: In addition to getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, Botox has been used to treat movement disorders and involuntary facial movements. Writer’s cramp, head and neck tremors, crossed eyes, excessive sweating, and facial spasms have all been successfully treated with Botox.
Truth: Potentially, aspirin and antibiotics can be more harmful to a person’s body than Botox. Botox is a purified protein from the botulinum toxin, which can be found in poorly preserved foods. However, the concentration of the toxin is very low and when a qualified physician performs the injections it only targets a certain muscle or group of muscles and does not spread outside this area.
Truth: Botox does not cause any physiological addiction. People that get Botox injections get used to their youthful face, feel more attractive, and experience a higher self-esteem. Since Botox injections are not permanent and last for three to six months, a man or woman may want to get another injection to keep experiencing the benefits but the drug itself is not addictive.
