Dispelling the myths of Botox anti-wrinkle injections

Dispelling the myths of Botox anti-wrinkle injections

07 February 2018

 

Botox injections have been around for quite some years now but some mystery still surrounds what they do and don’t do and even social media and glossy magazines confuse the issues.

At Woodford Medical clinic the doctors and nurse prescribers work tirelessly to correct the misapprehensions that their clients sometimes talk to them about and would like to share them with you.

 

Myth no. 1

Botox injections can make lips looks huge and unsightly as seen on some celebrities.

Truth

Botox injections are never used to enhance the size of the lip – however a dermal filler can be used in the lip area and when done professionally should result in a soft and natural enhancement.

Myth no. 2

Once you start having Botox injections you can’t stop otherwise you will look dreadful

Truth

There is nothing addictive about Botox injections other than the enjoyment of looking and feeling your best. When the effects begin to wear off it takes several week to totally disappear. Some lines and wrinkles once “re-educated” never actually reinstate themselves, this applies in particular to negative frown lines which respond really well to anti-wrinkle injections.

Myth no. 3

Botox injections make you look completely frozen and expressionless leaving you look like a plastic doll

Truth

Any reputable practitioner would never advocate the frozen look and clever and professional injecting should only make you look relaxed and refreshed as though you have had a really good holiday.

Myth no. 4

Botox injections can only be used to correct lines in the upper face

Truth

A truly experienced and skilled practitioner can also use these injections in the jowl and jawline to relax the platysmal muscle which pulls the neck and jawline down. This helps to sharpen the jawline, minimises the jowl and helps to keep the neck smooth and elongated.

Myth no. 5

This procedure can be performed by anyone including my local beauty parlour

Truth

At Woodford Medical we only use a tried, tested and licenced solution for our Botox injections.  It is a prescription only drug and therefore should only be injected by a medically qualified practitioner to ensure your safety. Your face deserves the very best treatment so put yourself in the safest of hands at Woodford Medical.
