Botox Is Not Safe
This is the most common myth about Botox. The fact is that the FDA approved Botox and the administration of it by a professional back in 2002. Approved for its use of wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, and its use to treat medical conditions. The FDA has continued to keep a close eye on the use of Botox, and has given it a stamp of approval for many years. Botox is, indeed, safe.
Cosmetic procedures such as Botox are becoming increasingly popular among men
This is a fact. More and more men are seeking cosmetic surgery. According to a 2005 survey the top five most popular procedures among men are Botox, hair transplantation/restoration, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and liposuction, in that particular order. There is a continuing rise of men getting procedures like this, and a recent Consumer Survey conducted shows that 12% of men plan to have cosmetic surgery at some point in the future.
Botox is Made From Food Poisoning
This is also a myth. It’s a common misconception given the derivative of the product. Botox is made from a purified protein that’s from the toxin Botulism. This is completely purified and safe for the body.
Botox can cause droopy eyelids
This is a myth. If your treatment is administered properly, the risk of suffering from droopy eyelids is quite low. In fact, it’s lower than 2%. With any potential side effect, the condition is temporary and should correct itself within the first few weeks.
Botox will leave you expressionless by freezing your facial muscles
This is a myth. Too much Botox will cause you to lose control of the muscles in your face. That is why there needs to be a balance between the facial muscles. This balance is maintained by injecting small doses into specific muscles. This will cause a natural softening of unwanted lines and wrinkles without compromising your facial expressions.
