3 Common Misconceptions About Botox Cosmetic Treatment


Posted by July 10th, 2019 in News

With the prevalence of non-invasive cosmetic treatments that effectively address skin aging, especially on the face, it is unfortunate that a lot of people refuse to receive any of these because of misconceptions; and Botox cosmetic treatment is just one of these several effective non-surgical treatments.

Forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other facial wrinkles and creases are some of the most common signs of aging. These are also the most common target areas for Botox cosmetic treatment. So, if you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment for these lines and wrinkles, Botox might be ideal for you. And if common myths about it are what’s keeping you from receiving this treatment, the answers below might finally put your fears to rest.

1. Botox restricts facial expressions

This is perhaps one of the most common misconceptions about Botox injections, and one of the most common reasons as well why people put off undergoing this procedure. Botox cosmetic treatment does not cause you to lose your facial expressions if done correctly by a trained and experienced injector. There are two reasons why people who have received the treatment seem to lose their facial expressions or look “frozen.”

First, the administering injector might have given the patient too much Botox or even injected the wrong muscle which caused the target areas to “freeze.” Secondly, the patient did not wait for the medicine to completely wear off before receiving another round of injections.

2. Botox gives instant results

First-time patients usually expect to see results immediately after undergoing the procedure. And when they don’t notice anything different, they start rubbing, touching, or poking the injected area. This will not only cause bruising but may also cause the medicine to travel down to other parts of the face or body.

For noticeable results, you will have wait between 3 to 5 days to allow the Botox to “kick in,” so to speak. Patients report optimal results from a Botox Cosmetic in the Bay Area between seven and ten days after treatment.

3. Botox is unsafe

The only unsafe Botox is one that isn’t diluted, stored, and administered properly. For this reason, you should only receive treatment from an experienced and licensed doctor. Do not administer the medication yourself on your own face or on someone you know.

The brand of Botox that you use also plays a role in its effectiveness and safety. At Rejuvé, we use Botox Cosmetic on San Jose Bay Area patients. Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment developed by Allergan to treat the frown furrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.
