Your wedding day is one of the most important and most photographed, days of your life, and of course, you want to look amazing! No pressure, right? Months of shredding for the wedding, eating right, drinking lots of water, and great skincare prep still hasn’t got you feeling 100% yet. Many brides and grooms consider Botox to help fill those pesky lines that just won’t go away. Are you wondering if it’s right for you? Don’t worry, Dr. David Gilpin and his team have sent us the top 5 common myths about Botox below!

Myth: Botox is only for old people with wrinkles.

Fact: Get ahead of the game! Although Botox is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, it is being used more frequently as a preventative treatment. Most patients start preventative treatments in their mid-late 20s. Say hello to younger looking skin right now!


Myth: Botox is permanent.

Fact: Although some of us might wish it were permanent, Botox typically only last 3-4 months.

Myth: It’s too expensive to upkeep.

Fact: Botox may not be in everyone’s budget, however, it is more affordable than most people would believe. The average cost ranges anywhere from $250-$650 and is typically needed 3-4 times per year. So easy to fit in your budget! Who wouldn’t give up a couple pairs of shoes for that!


Myth: Botox is painful and requires time off work.

Fact: Botox is often referred to as the “lunchtime” procedure since it requires little to no downtime and the injections typically only take 10 minutes. Most patients say the injections feel like a quick fingernail pinch. Forget pain is beauty! Botox at Gilpin Facial Plastics throws that idea straight out of the window!

Myth: If you get Botox you will lose your facial expressions.

Fact: Botox can look very natural when injected by a licensed and trained medical expert. Dr. David Gilpin and his team’s goal is to help their patients achieve a refreshed and natural appearance just in time for one of the biggest days of your life.

PS. Just like a haircut or spray tan, if you’ve never had Botox before, test it out with plenty of time before your wedding day! We would suggest at least 4-6 months.
