Botox has become a widely used anti-aging, skin rejuvenation treatment in Edmonton. When injected into the skin, Botox works to temporarily relax your facial muscles and smooth out any wrinkles and/or facial lines.

  • No surgical risks
  • Lower costs
  • Minimal and temporary side effects
  • Natural looking and long-lasting results

5 Common Misconceptions About Botox Debunked

Botox is one of the most common and safest anti-aging, skin rejuvenation treatments and can address a number of patients’ concerns when administered by a trained practitioner. Unfortunately, even after years of success, this revolutionary treatment is still shrouded in common misconceptions.

Here are five myths about Botox debunked and the truth about this incredible anti-aging treatment:

1. Botox Will Freeze Your Face

Botox works by relaxing muscle movement, therefore reducing the frequency and severity of line and wrinkle formation in the skin. A ‘frozen face’ is caused by practitioners administering an excessive number of Botox units, and this is easily avoidable if you work with a provider who has the proper expertise and training in using this cosmetic treatment.

2. Botox is Only Used For Cosmetic Purposes

Did you know that Botox was originally approved by the FDA to treat eye spasms and flickering? It was only a few years later that it became a cosmetic treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. Since then, its application has expanded, and it can now be used to treat:

  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Migraines
  • An overactive bladder


3. Botox Can Be Addictive

Contrary to popular belief, there are no addictive properties in Botox and stopping the treatment will not worsen fine lines or wrinkles. However, patients who discontinue injections will notice the reemergence of wrinkles over time because the results of this anti-aging treatment last between 3-4 months.

While you will certainly not develop a dependence on Botox, you are likely to be so pleased with the results that you will choose to continue the treatment.

4. Botox Injections are Painful

Trained Botox practitioners who take their time with your injections are typically able to achieve results without any bruising or discoloration of skin. The proper technique also ensures this treatment isn’t painful or outright ‘noticeable’.

What does this mean? This means that your results will be so gradual that no one will know you are even receiving injections.

5. Botox is Only Meant For Older Women

Botox is widely used for many types of patients, and there really is no one ideal patient profile. In fact, younger patients can benefit as much as older ones, as ‘preventive Botox’ can stop wrinkle formation and reduce the need for future treatments.


Men Are Increasingly Turning to Botox

Botox is becoming increasingly popular amongst male patients who wish to maintain their youthful appearance and boost their professional and personal lives.
