BOTOX® has become a rather popular beauty treatment and for good reason. However, there are always naysayers and skeptics that raise questions about its use and its safety. As a result, several myths have surfaced over the years. Most of them are completely untrue, and today we can put three of them out to pasture.
1. Waiting for the lines
One common myth that most everyone has heard is that you aren’t supposed to use BOTOX® until you begin seeing lines on your skin. The reality, however, is that it becomes a great deal more difficult to smooth them out once they are there. It is much better to use BOTOX® in a preventative capacity. This allows you to get your facial muscles accustomed to not making the types of faces such as scowls and squints that lead to lines forming in the first place.
2. Wrinkles only
A second common myth is that BOTOX® is used exclusively for the purpose of removing lines and wrinkles. This is untrue. In fact, you might be surprised to know that BOTOX® has actually been known to be effective in treating migraine headaches. BOTOX® reduces muscle tension which in turn reduces the amount of stress placed upon your nervous system. Additionally, BOTOX® has also been used to alleviate the problem of excessive sweats by temporarily blocking the sweat glands.
3. It’s a woman’s world
The third and final myth we’re busting today is that BOTOX® is primarily for women. The reality is quite the opposite. Many men do take part in BOTOX® treatments and that number seems to be on the rise each year. It’s not just older men either. There are men as young as 30 years old that take part in the treatments. Men are finding that BOTOX® softens their appearance which, in turn, makes them seem a little more approachable. This can be beneficial in business endeavors as well as in trying to meet the ladies. Either way, it’s clear that BOTOX® is a man’s world too.
Granted, these are just a few of the myths spiraling around out there, and they all merit the same scrutiny as we have given these. Still, these three big ones just begged to be busted as they are some of the worst in terms of holding people back from getting BOTOX® treatments that could help them in the long run.
