BOTOX: What’s Myth and What’s Fact

Some people may feel hesitant about BOTOX treatments for their skin. There are many rumors about the effects of BOTOX, but we’re here to tell you the truth about this specific skin care treatment.

BOTOX injections are safe and effective when performed by an experienced doctor like the professionals at the Age Management Institute.

The reason that rumors about BOTOX exist are because botulinum toxins (there are several — the main types are A through F) attach themselves to nerve endings. By doing so, they block the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract.

BOTOX is a trade name for botulinum toxin A. In other forms, this compound can be undesirable. However, in April of 2002, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced regulatory approval of botulinum toxin type A to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Subsequently, the use of BOTOX has become widespread, with many people viewing it as less intrusive and less artificial than other types of age management therapy (i.e. plastic surgery).
