Botox Long-Term Side Effects
Thank you for your question nadasakr. It is important to know the possible side effects of any treatment a person undergoes. Botox has been used for decades to treat a variety of conditions. There are no long-term side effects that I am aware of when Botox is used for cosmetic purposes on the face and neck. Botox is commonly used in patients aged 25-34 for treatment of wrinkles and for "prejuvenation," or preventative rejuvenation.
No Permanent Side Effects
BOTOX has been used for cosmetic indications for more than a decade, and in that time there haven't been any notable long-term effects recorded. BOTOX is especially effective on crinkles around the eyes, and it can be used repeatedly for many years, with no ill effects.
Botox around the Eyes
Botox is fabulous around the eye area and have no permanent side effects that I am aware of. On the contrary, Botox usually prevents further wrinkles around the eye area. Best, Dr. Green
