The iconic injectable BOTOX® Cosmetic has a large following of satisfied patients. Millions of people count on it to visibly smooth their unwanted lines and wrinkles. But despite its popularity, people often get the wrong idea about this treatment. Here’s the truth behind some of the most common BOTOX® Cosmetic misconceptions.

Myth: You Can’t Achieve Natural Results with BOTOX®

BOTOX® Cosmetic is often associated with a frozen or stiff facial appearance. However, it can actually look incredibly natural.

The thing is, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique sensitive treatment. You can trust it to deliver subtle and flattering results when administered by a trained provider who is familiar with facial anatomy. No one should be able to notice that you’ve had anything done.

Myth: BOTOX® is Unsafe

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a proven track record of safety. It’s backed by over 16 years of thorough studies and is approved for use in 98 countries. The FDA has evaluated and approved BOTOX® Cosmetic to help improve the appearance of concerns such as frown lines and crow’s feet.

Make sure that you visit a reputable provider and ask to see the vial of BOTOX® Cosmetic before treatment. These simple steps will help ensure the safest experience.

Myth: You Need to Be Over 40 To Start Using BOTOX®

Your age doesn’t determine when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you. Rather, it’s the severity of your wrinkles. Everyone’s face ages a bit differently, so consider BOTOX® Cosmetic whenever your lines begin to bother you.

You can also get BOTOX® Cosmetic as a preventative measure before the signs of aging set in. Preventative injections can help delay the formation of lines and wrinkles.
