4 Botox Myths Debunked

While Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, it is not without controversy. There are still many myths regarding its safety, function, and who the best candidates are.

If you are considering a Botox anti-aging treatment, here are some of the myths you should NEVER believe.

1. The Best Time for Botox Is When the Lines Appear

It was once believed that the best candidates for a Botox treatment were patients in their 40s and 50s. However, this skin treatment is now being used more frequently by a younger age group (20s and 30s) seeking preventative cosmetic treatments.

By starting Botox treatments early, before wrinkles are even visible, you’ll experience a host of benefits, including:

  • slower wrinkle development.
  • need for fewer skin treatments in the future.
  • discouragement of facial movement that leads to the development of fine lines.

Why To Consider Botox


2. Botox Treatments Are Not Always Safe

Botox was approved by the FDA for cosmetic purposes in 2002 and since then, millions of men and women have used the anti-aging skin treatment safely and effectively. HOWEVER, Botox is safest in the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon and at manufacturer-recommended doses.

ALWAYS find a plastic surgeon or skin care specialist with the required experience and knowledge on how to administer Botox to ensure your safety and best results.

3. Botox Only Works for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Contrary to popular opinion, wrinkles aren’t the only thing that Botox can fix! There are many different aspects of this skin treatment, both medical & cosmetic, that aids patients in different ways.

Some of the conditions Botox can be used to treat include:

However, before opting for a Botox treatment for any of these conditions, it is very important to book a consultation with your doctor or plastic surgeon to ensure that this is the best treatment method for you.



Botox works by relaxing wrinkle-producing facial muscles at the point of injection. These typically occur around deep lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and smile lines.

Botox DOES NOT affect any other muscles involved in overall facial movement. With this skin treatment, you’ll be able to display a wide range of expressions and enjoy a naturally enhanced, youthful appearance.

REMEMBER: The quality of your results largely depends on the skill of your plastic surgeon or esthetician, which is just another reason why it’s so important to do your research and find an experienced professional.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
