Top 3 Botox MYTHS
You are putting poison into my face!
Yes Botox is technically botulinum toxin Type A, which is produced by Bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by blocking transmission of alpha motor neurons at the neuromuscular junction which are responsible for muscle movement. Let's talk amount. Yes, we hear about botulism causing paralysis and not to give your infant honey because it can live in the soil. The average person needs about 50 units to treat the forehead, frown lines, and crow's feet. It takes about 13,300 units of Botox, given all at one time, to have any sort of toxicity.
I will look frozen!
If that is your jam, bring it on, but there are also people who get Botox to not look so tired - hello parents!!! You can look natural, just more you. You know, the you before 2020 hit. Also, starting sooner rather than later helps to prevent the DEEP lines.
People who get Botox are wealthy and vain.
Yes, it is expensive, but the confidence you feel is worth giving something else up. In terms of vanity, again, maybe you just want to look more awake and refreshed after getting 2 hours of sleep since your kid was throwing up all night and your dog tracked the vomit into your bedroom all while your partner was sawing logs. And chances are, those people that you envy for "looking so put together and unfazed by well, everyday life", DEFINITELY get Botox.
