The popularity of Botox is on the rise and for good reason since it is highly effective and minimally invasive. With this newfound fame, of course comes scrutiny and myths that can be seen floating around all over the Internet. The Bense SurgiSpa team would like to set the record straight by debunking the following Botox myths below.
Loss of Facial Expression
It’s the first thing you hear about Botox; that you can’t move your face. We treat your area of concern with minimum therapeutic dose of Botox Cosmetic. We will then follow up with a 2 week recheck if an additional treatment is necessary.
Only Facial Lines Can Be Treated
Did you know that Botox was initially developed as a treatment for neurological disorders, not as a cosmetic facial treatment? It’s still used today to treat migraines, chronic neck or joint pain, or facial spasms, Hyperhydrosis (Excessive Sweating Condition), and many other uses.
Botox has been around for over 20 years. It’s an established procedure with a proven safety record. No long-term side effects have ever been noted.
Most people compare a Botox injection to a mosquito bite. No anaesthetic is used, because it’s not needed. You may only feel a slight pinching feeling that only lasts a few seconds.
