Misconceptions & Side Effects of Botox


Does Botox make you look older after it wears off?

After Botox wears off, no, you won’t appear older. By relaxing the muscles that generate wrinkles and fine lines, Botox is a short-term treatment that can minimize their appearance. When Botox’s effects wear off, the muscles gradually regain their ability to contract, which could result in the wrinkles returning over time. Yet they won’t be any deeper or more noticeable than they were before the procedure.

When the benefits of Botox wear off, wrinkles may become more obvious than they were before the procedure in some circumstances if a person has been using it for a long time and their muscles have grown accustomed to being relaxed. Yet, this impact is often transient and will disappear with time.

It’s important to remember that wrinkles and fine lines will continue to appear with time whether or not you use Botox because the aging process is continuing. Botox just serves as a temporary fix to lessen their look.
