Myth #1

Painful? Barely! 

Most people compare the sensation of the injection to a mosquito bite. There is a slight pinching feeling but it only lasts a few seconds. The pain associated with the procedure is minimal to completely non-existent. Many people think that getting botox will cause you to lose the ability to have facial expressions. The truth is these procedures will enhance expressions rather than erase them completely. 

Myth #2  

Botox and Dermal Fillers are the same?

While they both lesson the appearance of wrinkles, Botox and Dermal Fillers do not function in the same way. Botox relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles. Dermal Fillers restore and add volume to facial tissue, giving you a youthful, plump look. 


Myth #3

Botox is a dangerous poison? False.

Many people believe that botox is a sythetic, dangerous material but it is actually found in nature. It is completely safe when used in proper doses. 

Myth #4

Aesthetic injections require lots of downtime?

Botox actually requires little to no downtime, although it is recommended that you don't lie down for the first few hours following your procdeudre. Dermal fillers can result in minor swelling and brusing but your doctor can recommend way to minimize that. 

Myth #5

Dermal Fillers are Irreversible?

While fillers typically last for a full year, if you are unhappy with your appearance, they can be reveresed. A reversing agent called hyaluronidase can break up the hyaluronic acid.

Myth #6

Botox is permanent? False.

Botox isn't permanent, it typically lasts for 3 months but can appearn to last for 6-12 because patients get used to not furrowing their brows.
