2. I will have to continue getting more and more Botox over time.
If you choose to discontinue injections, you will continue to age according to the normal aging process. With consistent treatment, you will be able to use less over time! Our patients love being able to see long term benefits from consistent treatment.
3. Botox injections are painful.
The sensation that most people describe is like that of a mosquito bite. Barely felt by most, or for those who do feel it, its little more than a very small pinch. Botox injections are very quick, so any discomfort is only felt for a few seconds. The consult and treatment can be completed in about 15 minutes.
4. Botox is only good for improving lines and wrinkles.
Botox has many other uses, such as treating excessive sweating, or hyperhydrosis. In addition, Botox can be used to treat pain and discomfort associated with teeth clenching, TMJ, and migraine headaches.
5. Botox injections are toxic and dangerous.
Used for more than 20 years, Botox is FDA approved for several indications and continues to be used safely as a purified protein.
