Myth 1: Botox injections are painful
Most patients describe Botox injections as a slight pinch or say that they hardly felt the injection at all. Using a topical anesthetic like Comfortox BLT with Comfortox 31g syringes (STATDDS) which were specifically designed for Botox injections helps insure your patients comfort and makes you a more comfortable injector. No other anesthetic is needed for this procedure.
Myth 2: Botox injections lead to a frozen face
Many people think that getting Botox injections will make them lose the ability to emote or make facial expressions. This is a myth; the treatment relaxes the muscles at the injection point. With a skilled injector, you will still be able to display the entire range of facial expressions including smiling, frowning and appearing surprised.
Myth 3: Botox is only for effective for removing wrinkles and improving facial lines
Botox is used for a range of medical conditions and was first used to treat strabismus, a problem with eye muscles. There are many medical uses such as treating migraines, back/neck pain, TMJ conditions, and hyperhidrosis just to name a few.
Myth 4: Wrinkles will worsen if you stop getting Botox
Botox will not worsen wrinkle formation but instead wrinkles will slowly return to how they were initially, prior to Botox treatment.
Myth 5: Botox treatments are toxic
Botox has been FDA approved for a number of uses. With over 20 years of use for a range of different conditions, Botox has a long and well establish safety history. It would take dose of more than 100 times the average dose given for a cosmetic use for Botox to be toxic.
