Botox Myths

Botox Myths

Are you tired of dealing with ageing skin? Do you want to restore your youthful glow and reduce fine lines and wrinkles? Botox might be an option for you. If you have been researching Botox online and how exactly the treatment works, you may have come across several articles discussing Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.

What Is Botox, and How Does the Treatment Work?

Botox is the brand name of a toxin used to treat wrinkles and creases on the face. The other familiar brands are Xeomin and Dysport. Botox is commonly used to treat wrinkles on the face and reduce the appearance of ageing. Additionally, it is also used to treat other conditions such as excessive sweating, dystonia, migraine and an overactive bladder.

Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to muscles in the injected area. Therefore the muscles are unable to contract and relax and soften. As a result, Botox is used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines and frowns.

Now that you learnt about Botox let’s find out about the common myths surrounding Botox treatment.

What Happens After I Stop Taking Botox? How Will It Affect My Appearance?

Botox treatment prevents muscles from contracting, allowing muscles to stay relaxed. Thus, it can lessen wrinkles that make a face look older. When you stop taking Botox treatments, you will continue to age at your natural rate and not at an accelerated rate. However, people use small amounts of Botox as a preventative measure. Treating wrinkles early on can help lower the look of ageing.

What Happens When I Stop Getting Facial Fillers? How Will It Affect My Lips and Cheeks?

Facial fillers can help stimulate collagen and leave the skin better looking than if you never used it before. Facial fillers contain vitamins, amino acids and growth factors that promote the production of collagen in the skin.

How Will I Look After Getting Skin Rejuvenation Treatments?

Often, people tend to get lip fillers more than what suits that natural look on their face. As a result, the excessive filler can result in a very artificial and unappealing look. At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, our trained professionals can advise you on the right amount of lip filler that goes best with your face.

Some people’s lips are meant to be small and suit their face better. Moreover, not all types of lips fill well, and when you force fillers, the face appears distorted. Therefore, ensure you get facial rejuvenation treatments at professional establishments such as Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic.
