Myths about Botox Injections Debunked

Even though Botox is over a decade old and widely accepted cosmetic procedures across the globe, it is also one of the most misunderstood processes. We thus try to debunk some of the most common myths surrounding Botox Peterborough to help you get the facts right.

Myth 1# Botox is unsafe and toxic

This myth is wrong. Botox is nothing but a purified derivative of botulinum protein and thus is completely safe to use. Moreover, the amount injected is far below the toxic levels. The myth arose from the fact that Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin which is often associated with food poisoning. Most clinics and patients undergoing the treatment from its inception will vouch of facing no severe and long term side effects to date.

Myth 2# Botox treatments are a painful affair

Even though Botox treatment means multiple injections, there is little to no discomfort during the procedure. The needles used are tiny, and they are injected just below the surface of the skin. Like a typical injection, you only feel a slight pinching sensation. Today there are available topical numbing creams which could be used prior to injecting Botox injections but most patients’ decline their use as there is almost no pain.

Myth 3# Anyone can inject Botox injections

The process is very simple and safe. Still, it should be performed only by skilled and trained healthcare professionals like Physicians, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, and Registered Nurse Injectors. It is because the success of this treatment is predominantly based on the professional’s skill and getting it injected by a novice can have adverse effects.
