Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on common misconceptions regarding botox treatments.
There are certain misconceptions, normally led by the public media, that patients may think are true facts about botox, here are some of them.
Many patients have seen celebrities that have been over botoxed and have the frozen look. We can control the effects of the botox injections so you should never have the frozen look. I prefer my patients to have a natural look after the botox treatment, this is where they can still move their face but the lines are either reduced or eliminated after the botox.
Like any medicine botox is therapeutic in the correct dose but can be poisonous in extremely large doses. The amount of botox we use to correct fine lines and wrinkles is so tiny compared to the danger level, that you will never reach this limit.
We all remember cases where botox has gone wrong in celebrities. However what we don’t see is all the cases that have gone to plan. There are certain side effects that we tell all our patients receiving botox treatments. These can be swelling and bruising.
The other main side effect is either drooping of the eyebrows or raising of the eyebrows to give a shocked look. Both of these side effects can be reduced by understanding how the muscles work and starting with a careful dose of botox initially.
Many patients feel that botox as a drug is addictive. There is no evidence to show that you can be addicted to botox. However because the results are so good with botox, many patients are reluctant to stop their botox treatments.
