Botox Myths Debunked

Botox Lasts Forever
Even though many clients wish that it would, the effects of Botox do not last forever. It is not a permanent solution. To maintain the results you get from Botox you have to get treatments every few months. If you aren’t happy with your results, rest assured that you aren’t stuck with them forever. If you love your results, you sadly can’t keep them forever either without proper maintenance treatments.

Botox Injections are Very Painful
We get it. Injections to the face do seem pretty scary when you’ve never had them done before. However, most of our clients say there is little to no discomfort during their Botox treatments. The needle used to inject the Botox is a super-fine needle and it injects a small amount of Botox at each injection site. Because of this, there is no downtime. You can even come in for Botox injections on your lunch break.

Botox Results are Instantaneous
Many people think that once they get the injections they will leave our office able to see the results. Actually, it can take 3 to 5 days for your results to be fully complete. This means you shouldn’t be disappointed when you go home after your Botox treatment and don’t see any differences in the mirror. Give it a few days and you notice the difference.

Botox Freezes Your Face
We’ve all heard the jokes about Botox freezing someone’s face and making them unable to be expressive. Have no fear. If you get your treatments from a licensed physician who specializes in cosmetic procedures, like the ones we have on staff at Infinity Med-I-Spa, you have nothing to worry about. Our experienced doctors are very skilled at knowing the correct placement of the Botox and the proper amount of Botox that should be used. It’s what we do day in and day out.

Botox is Not for Men
This one goes even beyond just Botox. It’s a myth that cosmetic procedures are only for women. There is nothing feminine about wanting to look your best or have confidence. Men deserve to look well-rested and refreshed just like women do. At Infinity, we value our male clients and do everything we can to give them results they will be satisfied with.

Botox is Dangerous
This one is another biggie that we hear a lot. We would never expose our clients to anything that would dangerous for them. In fact, Botox was approved for medical use before it became a cosmetic treatment. Millions of people have safely used it to achieve their desired results. To be considered toxic, you would need to be injected with around 100 times the average dose used for cosmetic purposes. 

That being said, Botox should only be administered by a licensed physician. Do not trust anyone that isn’t an experienced physician to give you Botox injections. 

If I Stop Using Botox My Wrinkles Will Be Even Worse
If you use Botox for a while but then decide to stop, will your wrinkles come back even worse than before? No. However, because you got used to seeing yourself without the wrinkles, it may seem like it as they begin to reappear. The Botox does not cause any change to your wrinkles if you stop use.
