Botox® Myths: Fact or Fiction?

Let’s discuss some common Botox® myths today. Doctors have used Botox® for many years to improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of misinformation surrounding Botox® treatment. Let’s separate the myths from the simple facts …

Myth 1: Getting Botox® will cause me to lose my facial expressions (aka the “Frozen Look”)

Fact: Botox® placed in a natural and conservative way only serves to enhance your look. You will appear well-rested and youthful, without losing the ability to move your face.

Myth 2: Botox® works by freezing muscles in the face

Fact: Botox does not freeze muscle movement. Rather, this naturally occurring protein sits on the receptor site and temporarily blocks activation of that muscle.

Myth 3: Botox® treatment is permanent

Fact: Wrinkle relaxer treatments last 3-6 months depending on the amount of Botox® placed and each patient’s unique anatomy.

Myth 4: My wrinkles will get worse if I stop getting Botox®

Fact: Botox treatments will not worsen wrinkle formation. Instead, wrinkles will just slowly return to how they looked prior to your Botox® treatment.
