Myths & Misunderstandings Involving Botox

We’ve all encountered a terrible Facebook photo of ourselves  – tagged by a friend who obviously doesn’t understand the rules – that makes us look ten years older. Before you know it, you’re in front of the mirror, stretching and pulling at your skin, trying to imagine what you’d look like if you had worn sunscreen every day since birth while bathing in coconut oil. But then you realize that anti-aging skin care is advancing by the minute, and the experts at Allura know how to take years off your face with a simple injection of Botox in Fort Collins. Of course, as with all advancements in medicine, there are always doubts, rumors and stories. Let’s discuss a few myths surrounding Botox today so that you can feel better about treating yourself.

Myth #1: Botox turns everyone into emotionless zombies. We’ve heard this rumor time and time again – if you get Botox, your face won’t be able to express emotion ever again. This is not true! If done correctly, Botox allows you to look great while still expressing emotions – especially happiness because you’ll feel and look great!

Myth #2: Botox and Dermal Fillers are the same. While both lessen the appearance of wrinkles, Botox and Dermal Fillers are not the same thing as they don’t function in the same way. Botox relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles while Dermal Fillers restore and add volume to facial tissue.

Myth #3: Botox injections are toxic to the body. A reputable doctor is never going to inject your body with something dangerous simply for aesthetic appeal. When administered in the right dosage, Botox is safe for your body.
