Despite common knowledge, Botox injections generally do not cause negative side effects. Botox is a highly-used purified toxin that is injected to relax over-tense facial muscles. The effects usually last from 4-6 months.
Although it is usually safe, there is a wide variety of possible risks associated with Botox injections. Some of the negative side effects include fatigue, muscle stiffness after the procedure, eye irritation, headache, and dizziness. In rare cases, some patients experience extreme reactions like vision problems, difficulty breathing, heartbeat problems, and muscle weakness.
Although most of these symptoms are extremely unlikely to occur, it is important to always consider these possibilities before getting Botox injections. Talk to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon about risks, and search for a highly-experienced service provider to avoid possible mishaps.
