There are many misconceptions about Botox Cosmetic,
Myth #1: BOTOX is unsafe.
FACT: BOTOX has a long and well-established safety history. While you may know BOTOX as a wrinkle treatment, it has actually been in use for over 24 years for the effective treatment of a range of medical conditions. Botox is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world.
Myth #2: Botox is botulism (food poisoning).
FACT: Botox is not botulism. It is a purified protein and a finished medical prescription product proven to be very safe through extensive research and testing.
Myth #3: BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is painful.
FACT: A BOTOX treatment is quick and simple. A very fine needle and small amount of liquid is used, so the pain associated with the injection is minimal. No anesthetic is required, you can resume normal activities immediately.
Myth # 4: BOTOX will result in the loss of facial expression.
FACT: BOTOX is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by an experienced physician, you can still smile, frown and animate. The treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the lines at the point of injection, so the other elements of facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, so you will have normal feeling in the treated areas.
Botox is also successfully used for treatment of excessive sweating. The procedure involves the injection of Botox around the sweat glands. Common areas include underarms, palms, and soles. Most private insurance covers the cost of Botox. After the treatment the patient will feel dry and comfortable for 6-8 months.
