¿Does Botox change your expression?
If it is applied by a qualified specialist who knows the face’s muscles perfectly, the effect gained will be the correction of wrinkles without affecting your facial expression.

¿Does it cause addiction?
The only addiction it causes is how good one ends up looking. When patients see the excellent result once the toxin’s effect has passed, they may not want to go back to their original state.

Is it true that once the Botox effect has passed, your face looks deflated and worse than before you got it?
Once the toxin’s effect has passed the muscles start regaining their strength, which is why wrinkles start leaving a mark again. However, the relaxation that the skin has received blurs the wrinkles and makes them appear less marked. Botox doesn’t work by stuffing which is why the face doesn’t look deflated once its effect has passed.

¿Does Botox harm the kidneys?
There is no published study that demonstrates its toxicity in any organ of the body. In fact, to let a medication be commercialized it needs to pass different tests in laboratory settings in order to prove that they don’t cause any harm in human beings.

¿Is Botox only for older people with a lot of wrinkles?
This treatment can be used from a young age. There are patients, due to their type of skin and facial muscle strength (hyperkinetic), whose wrinkles start showing marks from a very early age.

¿Is its application painful?
It is applied cold and with a topical anesthetic. The procedure is tolerable, since it is applied in less than 10 minutes on the entire face.
