3 Myths About Botox Debunked

Botox® Cosmetic San Francisco, CABotox is one of the most popular things that we offer our patients here at Aura Med Spa, and that popularity isn’t going to die down anytime soon. By softening fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, Botox can temporarily restore your more youthful complexion. To help you better understand Botox and whether or not it’s right for you, we have created an article debunking three common myths about it. Read on to learn more.

Myth #1: It’s a Filler

One of the most common misconceptions that people have about Botox is that it is a filler. However, Botox works completely differently than fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. While fillers fill in the fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles in the forehead which in turn softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Myth #2: It’s Just For Wrinkles

Although the primary use of Botox is to combat fine lines and wrinkles, it can also be used to treat a variety of other health related issues like chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweat, and more. In fact, Botox was initially used to treat strabismus.

Myth #3: It’s Only for People 60 Years and Up

Another common misconception that people have regarding Botox is that it is only for people who are over the age of 60. However, Botox can be used for individuals who are even as young as in their 20’s to help prevent against fine lines and wrinkles deepening.
