Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog talks about the myths about botox.
#1: I will look much worse once I stop having the treatments
If you stop Botox® treatments, you will NOT look worse. The worst case scenario is that you will return to your pre-Botox® look. Some patients even report a long-lasting softening of their lines months after stopping their Botox®. Patients typically get three to four months from one injection of Botox®. With repeated use, they might only need it six to nine months later. This is especially true if the earlier re-treatments are done as soon as the muscle is just starting to move. The analogy is as seen when keeping a cast on a broken arm—the muscles soften when not being used.
#2: Botox® is a poison
Botox® is a very potent medication and can do considerable damage if injected into the wrong place in the wrong amount. This does NOT make it dangerous to use however, especially when administered by an experienced practitioner. When injected correctly, there have been no instances of side effects beyond the injection site. The key to its correct use is to have an experienced practitioner.
#3: You will look fake with botox injections
If used correctly, no one will be able to tell you have had botox. I always go for the natural look and most of my patients do it for them selves and no one else.
#4: Anyone can inject botox
No, only qualified medical practitioners, such as dentist, doctors and medical nurses can inject you and are properly qualified and insured.
#5: You will become addicted to botox
For a drug to be addictive, it must have a systemic effect. Botox® does not affect your body as a whole and does not affect the nervous system beyond the injection site. However, you might become addicted to the improved, relaxed appearance it will give you.
#6: Stay natural and don’t change your looks
Botox® does not change your appearance, it basically rolls back the years and takes you to where you used to look. If it gives you the confidence back in yourself, then there is nothing wrong with undertaking botox injections.
