Fact or Fiction About Botox and Other Injectables
- Posted on: Jul 12 2011
There are a number of myths about injectables that people incorrectly believe. While some of the myths may be true if you choose to have Botox at a medical practice that is not reputable, they are not true across the board.
Myths About Botox
- You will lose the feeling in your face – this is a myth because Botox is only injected into the muscles of your face and does not effect the nerves at all.
- The filler will migrate – Botox can be injected into the wrong muscle and impact other parts of the face. But, it cannot migrate on its own.
- Your face may freeze in an expression – Botox causes muscles to relax rather than contract. It is physically impossible for Botox to result in a ‘stuck’ expression.
