It’s the 15th anniversary of BOTOX® being used for cosmetics purposes! To mark the milestone, we’ve compiled a list of myths about the procedure, with help from world-renowned French aesthetic doctor Dr Jules Nabet.
1. BOTOX® is for Older Women
There is a common myth is that BOTOX® is for older women. But this is far from true – BOTOX® is regularly used as a preventative measure in women in their twenties and thirties, helping with premature ageing and wrinkle development. Dr. Nabet actually states that the average age of his female clientele in the UK is 35!
2. BOTOX® will freeze your face
Not true. “If you can’t move your face, it hasn’t been done correctly,” says Dr. Nabet. “It’s all about where you put it and how much is used. If BOTOX® is performed well, it should be impossible for the untrained eye to tell you’ve had any. The key is a subtle, understated approach, keeping expression in the face.”
3. BOTOX® and fillers are NOT the same thing
Both of these are administered together to treat the face as a whole, but the two products are very different, says Dr. Nabet. BOTOX® relaxes the muscles, while filler is used to add volume to areas that become hollow with age.
