The Top Five Common Misconceptions About Botox Injections in Fayetteville
The rich and famous have used Botox for years to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but these days the treatment is accessible to everyone, young or old. Still, myths persist from the early days of Botox injections; myths mainly caused due to the misuse of the treatment. Here we dispel the top five common misconceptions about Botox injections in Fayetteville.
Myth 1: Botox Can Be Dangerous
The Federal Food and Drug Administration approved Botox to treat certain medical conditions in 1989. In 2002, the FDA also approved it for cosmetic uses. Since then, millions of people have used Botox safely and effectively. But to be safe, you need to have a qualified doctor perform your Botox injections and provide your follow up. At Finesse WomensHealth, we have a qualified medical team, which includes Dr. Hazem M. Qalla who has 12 years of experience providing Botox injections in Fayetteville.
Myth 2: Botox is Only for Wrinkles
While Botox is probably best known for its ability to decrease wrinkles and lines in your face, it also has many FDA-approved medical uses as well. Botox injections can be used to treat migraines because it can reduce muscle tension in your face thus creating less strain on your nervous system. Botox can also be used to help stop excessive underarm sweating, help prevent eyelid muscle spasms, help prevent an overactive bladder and may even might help patients who suffer from depression. Our professional health care team provides a wide range of safe and effective Botox medical treatments in Fayetteville so contact us today to see what we can do for you.
Myth 3: Your Face Will Freeze
Despite this myth, Botox doesn’t actually freeze the muscles in your face. Instead, it simply relaxes wrinkle-producing facial muscles at the point of injection. Generally, these injection points are around deep lines and wrinkles that are caused by facial movements such as forehead furrows and smile lines.
Botox injections do not affect the muscles involved in your facial expressions. Your face won’t freeze; you’ll still be able to display a normal range of facial expressions. However, the quality and safety of your results depends on the skills and experience of your doctor. You’ll want to make sure you visit a professionally trained and experienced doctor such as Dr. Qalla at Finesse WomensHealth for your Botox injections in Fayetteville.
Myth 4: You Don’t Need Botox Until You Start Getting Wrinkles
Actually, the best time to start getting Botox treatments is before wrinkles become deeply etched in your skin when it is more difficult to smooth their appearance again. That’s because Botox can be used as a preventative, cosmetic treatment as well as an agent to help ease up already discernable wrinkles and keep them from getting worse.
Botox can help prevent wrinkles from appearing due to facial movements like squinting or scowluhing if the injections are used before you even notice these wrinkles. Note, however, that most physicians will not recommend Botox treatments for young patients such as adolescents or those in their 20s since these age groups are not yet highly susceptible to developing wrinkles. At Finesse WomensHealth, we can help you decide if it is an appropriate time to begin preventative treatment with Botox injections in Fayetteville.
Myth 5: If You Stop Using Botox, Your Wrinkles Will Get Worse
Not true. If you stop your Botox injections your wrinkles will just go back to the way they were before treatment, no better and no worse. They will, however, naturally worsen over time as you lose the relaxing effects of Botox and continue the facial movements that cause wrinkles. Botox will, however, prevent your wrinkles from getting worse while you continue treatments.
Remember, however, that results from Botox treatments are not permanent. Results typically last three to four months per treatment but if you use Botox treatments regularly they can last longer.
