There are some myths about cosmetic medicine that remain rampant, even though millions of treatments are performed every year! Procedures like BOTOX and laser hair removal have become so popular that we have to wonder why these myths haven’t been squashed yet.
MYTH: BOTOX is a poison which shouldn’t be injected into the body.
FACT: BOTOX was first used as a treatment for two serious health conditions of the eyes, blepharospasm and strabismus. Currently, it is also used as a treatment for several other debilitating health conditions, including chronic migraines and spasticity. BOTOX is a purified protein that is administered in low doses to achieve a beneficial effect on your health, as well as appearance. The amount administered for the treatment of wrinkles is very low, and in the time following injection, your body will naturally eliminate it through its physiological processes.
About Injectable Filler
MYTH: After you get injectable filler, you’ll look worse when you stop treatments.
FACT: This couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only is there no scientific proof to back this claim, your skin and facial contours will simple return back to what they were prior to treatment. The effect of “looking worse” may only be because when the results gradually fade (since fillers are temporary), you remember why you got the treatment in the first place!
About Laser Hair Removal
MYTH: Laser hair removal achieves the same results for all people, regardless of hair and skin type.
FACT: Even though the technology may be the same, results differ depending on the individual patient. The results and length of time to achieve them are unique for each patient, which is why a consultation with our medical consults is required before you start your treatment. Your laser hair removal specialist will determine the strength at which the laser should be, and the treatment schedule so you can achieve optimum results.
