You have probably wondered about the effects of Botox and whether it is a safe procedure for dealing with the effects of aging on the skin. There are plenty of reports in the media about Botox procedures that have gone wrong and they tend this has created a sense of negativity about Botox treatment. The truth is that there are many myths that exist, many of which are untrue. If Botox treatment is done correctly by a qualified practitioner, the chances of suffering negative effects are very negligible.
The first myth that needs to be debunked is that Botox is unsafe for humans. It has actually been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This means that it is safe for use as long it is administered in the right way by a qualified person.
It is always thought that administering of Botox on one’s face will lead to a frozen-looking, expressionless face. The truth is that it is usually injected in specific areas and targets wrinkled areas. The frozen face effect usually occurs due to excessive plastic surgery procedures.
Many people think that Botox injections are painful. This could not be further from the truth. There may be a little discomfort during the procedure as the needle penetrates the skin and the Botox is released, however, the needles used are usually very thin and do not cause pain.
Lastly, many people think that using Botox can lead to addiction. The truth of the matter is that Botox procedures are not addictive. What happens is that people may become too obsessed with the successful outcome of the procedures and this may lead them to get more and more injections.
