Myth 1. Botox is a filler: Fillers and Botox are different things. Fillers work to “fill” in lines and restore volume loss. Botox, on the other hand, works to relax the muscles that cause those lines.
Myth 2. You need to be older to have Botox: There is no set age for when’s a good time to use Botox for aesthetical reasons. However, more and more people are using it as a preventative measure in their early years to reduce the production of wrinkles and lines before they take hold.
Myth 3. Botox trains muscles: This is somewhat true, because the muscles that cause wrinkles are relaxed, over time they lose their ‘strength’ and their ability to cause wrinkle-producing expressions. Imagine.The prolonged use of Botox over years can have a similar effect, as the muscle may weaken from lack of use.
Myth 4. Having Botox gives you good skin: Botox only effects the muscles it’s injected into, so your entire face will not freeze up. There are also no skincare benefits – having Botox will not improve pigmentation or reduce breakouts.
