5 Myths surrounding Botox Injections

Botox has a long and well established safety history, with more than 16 million treatments being performed worldwide since it was first introduced. There are no long term effects that have ever been recorded in users of the treatment (studies have followed people who have had at least 30 treatments over a period of nine years).

The average Botox treatment in the UK is either 1 syringe 25ml, or 2 syringes 50ml. It would take a dose of more than 100 times the average dose to be fatal.

2. Botox Treatments lead to a loss of expression and a frozen face.

Many people think Botox injections will cause you to lose the ability to have facial expressions. This myth has come about as a direct result from seeing celebrities with frozen faces, from obviously too much treatment, which was quite fashionable when Botox first arrived on the market.

Nowadays most practioners will encourage clients to go for a ‘natural fresh look’, so Botox clients can still frown and smile, just with reduced lines.

If you stop having Botox treatments your muscles will recover straightaway.

3.Botox is Botulism.

Many medications are derived from toxins and are completely safe. There has been extensive research and testing on Botox to ensure it is safe and effective for users as an antiaging agent.


4. Botox can only be used for Facial Lines.

Botox was actually developed as a treatment for neurological disorders and it continuous to be used for a variety of different conditions, including depression, migraine, chronic neck and back pain, joint and bladder problems, excessive sweating and involuntary facial spasms.
