Botox is arguably one of the most popular and commercially accepted cosmetic procedures of the 20th century. Tampa Botox injections are the most well-known option for temporarily paralyzing muscle activity and minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet. While Botox has many other medical applications, it is best known for its cosmetic uses.
Despite gaining worldwide popularity, Botox procedures in Tampa have also gained negative reviews. The Tampa plastic surgery professionals at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery are highly skilled and trained in Botox and would like to help pull the mask off of some common Botox myths, so that you do not have any reservations or concerns when opting for a Botox treatment in Tampa.
Myth 1. Botox injections lead to a loss of facial expressions.
Many people think that if they get Botox treatment in Tampa they will lose the ability to make facial expressions. When done naturally, Botox will allow you to look great and still express emotion.
Myth 2. Botox can be injected anywhere on the face.
Botox injections address specific issues such as forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. If you are interested in fuller lips you would not choose a Botox treatment in Tampa; full lips procedures require the use of dermal fillers.
Myth 3. You can’t become immune to Botox.
Even though it is very rare, you can become immune to Botox since the body will eventually start to produce antibodies. This is usually addressed by allowing more time to pass between injections.
Myth 4. Botox has immediate results.
Since Botox works by relaxing facial nerves that cause movement, it will generally start working in three to five days, but can take an upward of seven to ten days.
Myth 5. Botox is permanent
Botox is not permanent. It will typically last for three months, but appears to last longer since patients get used to not furrowing their brow.
