Safety of Botox injections
I like to tell my patients that Botox is the safest procedure I do in my practice, in my opinion. Millions of treatments are performed each year. However, as with any medical treatment, there are some risks. The most common risk are bruising, swelling, and other injection site reactions. Some patients experience headache with injection. Dry eyes and brow/lid ptosis may also rarely occur. Have your treatment performed by an experienced injector and you will almost certainly be fine!
Is Botox safe
Botox is a safe treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. In experienced hands there are minimal side effects. I would recommend to have your injections from an experienced doctor who can manage any problems you may have. More importantly go to a Doctor that shows you the product they are using as well as the expiry dates. This is unfortunately a problem in the UK. The right product and the right doctor make a fantastic combination!
Botox has a wonderful safety profile. I have been injecting it and receiving it for 30 years now and the only side effects I have experienced is that I looka lot younger than other 63 year old men(except for my patients who received Botox!)
