Below are some of the most common misconceptions about Botox injections, which are popular in many cosmetic facial procedures to reduce wrinkles:

#1 ‘Botox is Botox.’

Many consumers think that all injectables are identical. This is not the case. People refer to these products as Botox in the same way that people refer to all tissues as Kleenex. Botox is simply the name of one of the best-known injectable neuromodulators. In reality, there are many brands of this product at many different prices. Which one is best for you will be determined by Dr. Fiorillo after your initial consultation.

#2 ‘I can buy Botox cheaper online.’

Some people are tempted to get these injectables online at lower prices. Remember that not all injectables are the same. There are many, many different types of injectable neuromodulators, and there are some unauthorized online retailers of such products. You definitely do not want to have something that has been injected into your face that has been adulterated in any way! This can lead to severe problems.

Also remember that in the end, your results mostly depend on the skill level of the person doing the injections. Dr. Fiorillo is one of the most respected plastic surgeons in the New York and New Jersey area. He has many years of experience with these types of procedures.

#3 ‘I might get hooked on Botox.’

There is no way to become physically addicted to Botox or another similar product. However, some patients love their results so much that they want to have Botox injected too often. Dr. Fiorillo will guide you on how much and how often to do these injections.
