The Misconceptions of Botox

 For over twenty years Botox has been used as a cosmetic treatment. It has also been used more widely within the medical industry for other treatments, such as hyperhidrosis. Despite its continued and safe usage, in addition to its widespread popularity, there are still numerous myths that surround the medicine. 

 Much of its negative image stems from persistent misrepresentations in media, purporting issues of misuse and dangers that are entirely false. Although this has not impacted its adoption or popularity, it creates an unnecessary stigma around a treatment that is helping many people around the world.

Perhaps the most well-known and wrong idea that circulates is that Botox is dangerous. The naturally-occurring substance may take some of its bad reputation from its true name, botulinum toxin. However, it has been approved by numerous institutions for its safe usage, including the FDA. Part of the myth may also come from its usage outside of the medical industry.

Botox is a medicine that should be administered by medical professionals and practitioners to maintain its safety. There are many opportunities to arrange advice or arrange a consultation at a Botox treatment Marlow and Maidenhead location. Self-administration or seeking a cheaper alternative can lead to issues that are then wrongly associated with the treatment.

It is also a common trope in movies and television shows for Botox to be recognisable. While a small number of treatments may result in light bruising, it is a very clean treatment. In its cosmetic use, and administered by a professional, Botox will only be apparent through the absence of your wrinkles or more toned skin. It does not freeze your face either. The facial muscles are never immobile but, instead, just relaxed. This is Botox’s primary method of dealing with wrinkles. The medicine smooths the skin by relaxing the muscles.

The treatment does require maintaining, typically every three to five months.  After a period of twelve weeks, one is able to schedule the next treatment to maintain their skin and looks. If the treatment is not maintained then wrinkles may return but they are no more apparent than would occur naturally. Botox does not increase wrinkles or exacerbate them. 

The treatment and administration are neither painful or lengthy. An appointment can be arranged quickly and, despite a small pinching sensation, the whole process takes no more than fifteen to thirty minutes. It is also purported that other products, such as facial cleansers and moisturisers may have a comparable effect. This is also not true. While many advances have been made in facial care, as well as preventative practices, there is currently no alternative treatment that replicates the muscle relaxation of Botox.

There are many positive effects of Botox and its popularity is maintained due to the fantastic impact it has upon peoples lives. Both women and men seek the treatment to help maintain their desired look and beauty. It helps to boost confidence and sustains a feeling of youth and beauty that many enjoy.
