"BOTOX gives you botulism."
"BOTOX will give you scary trout mouth."

If you only listened to rumors and whispers, you might walk away seriously misinformed about what BOTOX is, how it works and even its safety. Get the scoop about the most common BOTOX myths (along with its popular counterpart, Dysport), and learn the truth about this FDA approved treatment the media loves to hate.

NewBeauty Video: BOTOX Myths Exposed

BOTOX Only Works If You Already Have Wrinkles: FALSE!

A particularity prevalent myth is the idea that BOTOX is only suitable if you already have a lot of lines and wrinkles. In reality, however, you can use BOTOX as a preventative measure. In fact, it may be easier to prevent deep lines from forming if you take action and try BOTOX before they become permanently etched into your face.

BOTOX Is Only for Women: FALSE!

In movies and the media, BOTOX is often strongly associated with women. If you look at statistics, you quickly realize that both genders embrace the benefits of BOTOX and Dysport. In 2014, over 400,000 men used BOTOX, and that number is part of an upward trend.

BOTOX Is Exclusively a Cosmetic Procedure: FALSE!

When most people think of BOTOX, they imagine the cosmetic benefits. To be sure, BOTOX is definitely a viable way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and seemingly reverse or halt the appearance of aging skin. However, you can use BOTOX for a number of other reasons. Just a few of the alternative uses for BOTOX include preventing chronic migraines and reducing excessive sweating.

BOTOX Offers Immediate Results: FALSE!

Another of the most common BOTOX myths is that the results are immediate. This is routinely shown in television shows and movies, but it is not the case. Although your treatment can take as little as 10 to 15 minutes, your results won't be completely noticeable for 3 to 7 days.

BOTOX Injections Are Very Painful: FALSE!

One of the most dangerous BOTOX myths is the idea that a BOTOX injection will be incredibly painful. If you have ever had an injection for a vaccine, you are probably already familiar with the discomfort level. Many people say that a BOTOX injection feels similar to a pinch. Plus, there are numbing agents as well as ice that can help to desensitize the area before your injection, further reducing any worries about discomfort or pain.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
