Botox® in Cincinnati is one of the best ways to rid your face of fine lines and wrinkles. It is safe and very effective, so why doesn’t everyone use it? People tend to avoid Botox® because it has a bad reputation, but luckily most of what makes its reputation so bad is simply untrue! The following is a list of the top three common misconceptions about Botox®:

  1. It is dangerous- False! The method of injecting Botox®, and the amount of Botox® used in an injection are carefully controlled. It should be administered only by an experienced dentist in Cincinnati, because it is important to inject it in the right place. It has been used since the 1990′s, and there have been no reported negative long term effects, and very few short term effects.
  2. It is painful- False! Botox® injections are super quick and virtually painless. Many people that have had Botox® injections in the past compare the sensation to getting an insect bite. Recovery time is incredibly fast, in fact many people go back to work right after their injection.
  3. It will freeze your face- False! Botox® cannot freeze your face. What it does is soften your fine lines and wrinkles so that when you relax your face, your wrinkles are gone. For example, when you bring your eyebrows together there is a line in between them, with Botox® that line will be gone when you relax again.
