Do you feel that the wrinkles and fine lines on your face are making you look older than your true age? Do you wish to reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles but do not want to go under the knife? One of the most popular means to treat wrinkles is injecting Botox to the face. Botox in Manhattan is available at Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York. A lot of people love Botox and have already benefitted from it. Others are a bit reluctant and their hesitations may be caused by inaccurate information.

Here are the most common myths you hear about Botox as well as the truth behind these misconceptions.

1. It will leave you with distorted facial expressions.

Perhaps you have heard this from several people and think that it is true. This is a common misconception on Botox. The truth is facial expressions will only be distorted if there is an overdose or if the drug is injected into the wrong area. Thus it is strongly advised that only a trained and experienced professional will administer the injections.

2. You will become “addicted” to the injections.

The drug does not cause any kind of physiological addiction. Its effects are not permanent and last for three to six month only. Some people call it an addiction just because those who have seen the effects of Botox would most likely want to have injections once the effects go away. Remember that there is nothing wrong with having the desire to look good.

3. The injections are painful.

Botox injections are virtually pain free. Most patients do not feel anything unpleasant while others say that the sensation is like a mosquito bite.

Despite the popularity of Botox, these misconceptions continue to circulate. If these myths are stopping you from having Botox, give us a call today at 212.391.8600 and know the truth behind all these myths. We look forward to hearing from you!
