Medspa Myths: The Truth of Injectable Neurotoxins
Many clients are afraid of getting botulinum toxin treatments because of common myths. They may believe that antiwrinkle injections will freeze their facial expressions (leaving them unable to lift their eyebrows naturally), neurotoxin injections are extremely painful, or if they stop receiving injections, their face may look more wrinkled than before they started. These myths have been debunked time and again.
What is rarely acknowledged is that even clients who choose to get botulinum toxin treatments often harbor misunderstandings about it. Therefore, it is an injector’s responsibility and even moral duty to ensure that their clients fully understand the treatments they give them, so they can make fully informed choices about their own faces, skin, and bodies. This is also in a medical spa’s interests, as they can prevent their clients from feeling disappointment, unhappiness, and even anger down the road.
There are two popular misunderstandings about injectable neurotoxins from clients who are new to injectable treatments and more seasoned aesthetic clients as well. They both have the common theme of expecting too much from these treatments.

An Increase in Preventative and Combination Treatments
The most significant aesthetic trend for 2022 will be a focus on preventative treatments and combination treatments to maintain and achieve natural, healthy, and balanced results. As for the growing interest in preventative treatments, more Gen Z and younger patients are realizing the preventive benefits of Botox in particular, which we call the king of the neuromodulators. They reduce the development of wrinkles caused by daily ordinary facial muscle movement. By starting early with Botox, it will reduce the muscle movements, thereby preventing the static wrinkle formation. It’s better to prevent wrinkle formation than to correct the wrinkles later. For patients in their later 30s and older, I see the trend of applying multiple and combination treatment modalities to more aggressively and effectively address and correct the issues of skin sagging, volume loss, wrinkles, and skin quality. This, of course, requires a professional consultation to help the patient develop a treatment plan and roadmap.
In addition, more patients will seek to improve the entire facial profile and shape, rather than just focus on single areas of enhancement such as lips or cheeks.
