If you are concerned that you have a sensitivity to medications you should try just one area of Botox first to see if you have any reactions that don't seem typical. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Botulism and Botox Cosmetic
The concentration of the purified form of Botox Cosmetic is to low to cause botulism unless injected in very high doses. Per the manufacturer documentation the estimated lethal dose amount that would be 2800 units for 50 % of patients.
Typical treatments are less than 100 units and are thus extremely safe.
