BOTOX (Botulinum toxin) MYTHS

May 31, 2019 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

There are some common myths about Botox that we’re here to dispel. For those of you who are interested in the procedure, here are a few important facts to learn before you move forward. First myth: Botox is very painful. That is NOT true. Botox is administered through tiny needles, which can feel like a slight burn or mosquito bite upon injection. Second myth: Botox works immediately. This is also incorrect. Botox typically takes 3-5 days to fully take effect. The third misconception is that Botox lasts forever, when in reality it lasts 3-5 months on average.  A fourth common misconception is that Botox can leave a person with a “frozen” expressionless face. That’s also incorrect. Minimizing muscle movement through Botox injections doesn’t eliminate a person’s ability to show facial expressions. A last common myth is that Botox can give you a “windblown” look. That is also false. Botox injectable treatment can look very natural, and be a very effective and powerful tool in anti-aging.
