Correcting Common Botox Misconceptions

Wrinkles on the face are the most noticeable signs of aging. Since there is no way to stop the aging process, people focus on reversing its signs. Here at K Plastic Surgery, patients can turn back the clock with Botox in Albany. Without a doubt Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. This popularity is accompanied by a lot of misconceptions that prevent some people from taking advantage of Botox.

Here are some myths that a lot of people have about Botox.

Botox injections are painful.

Many individuals do not like getting injections as they think it is painful. Botox injections are not painful. In fact, the sensation can be compared to a mosquito bite and this feeling goes away after a few seconds. Anesthesia is no longer needed. Also, the needle used is very fine and the amount of liquid injected is very small too. Pain in Botox injections is very minimal to non-existent.

Botox distorts facial expressions.

After Botox, facial expressions are enhanced. It is not true that facial expressions are distorted after a person receives Botox injections. Botox merely relaxes the muscles where it is injected. Of course, it is important for the injections to be administered by trained personnel only to prevent misdirected injections and to ensure that the correct dosage is administered.

People become addicted to Botox.

This misconception makes people hesitant about getting Botox injections. The truth is Botox does not cause any form of physiological addiction. Moreover, the effects are not permanent and last for three to six months only. What people actually have is the desire to look younger and fresher, which is not addiction in any way.
