Thank you for posting your question. More common side effects of Botox are headache, tenderness at injection site, and bruising. There have been no reported systemic effects with cosmetic Botox injections. Hope this helps!

Can Botox kill even with a good physician
Thank you for your question. A death from cosmetic Botox injection has never been reported. Consult with a board certified injector. best Wishes
In the 12 years that I have injected Botox I have never had a report of the complications that you are referring. I suggest consulting with your injector of Botox for an evaluation of this problem or contacting Botox directly as they have a patient hotline for this types of problems with side effects or complications1-800-433-8871 .
Hope this helps,

In all the years Ive done botox i have never had a systemic complications and do not feel it can actually occur. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
The most common side effects of Botox are small bruise, headache for several hours after treatment or weakening of an unintended muscle. Serious side effects are incredibly rare when Botox is used properly at cosmetic doses.

Botox is extremely safe and there has never been reported a serious side effect in the millions of patients injected. The key is to get into the hands of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who is experienced in the use of the material to get the best results
Botox cosmetic has a better safety profile than aspirin. There are no deaths reported using Botox Cosmetic for cosmetic use. In fact, it would be difficult - probably impossible - to cause a death with a full vial. Having said that, you want to make sure that you are getting the real deal - Botox, Dysport or Xeomin. Reputable physicians don't look to save money by purchasing drugs from resellers who may be selling counterfeit. If you don't trust your physician, it is time to find another one. Nausea after botox could be from a vasovagal reaction due to anxiety or to the rare brief onset of flu like symptoms or it could be 'true, true and unrelated' (in other words coincidental).
I hope this answer was helpful.
Wishing you the best of luck.
Botox Cosmetic is extremely safe and I have never seen a serious side effect from it in my practice. To my knowledge, there has never been a death caused by cosmetic Botox treatment. However, it sounds like Botox may not be the right treatment for you.
