risk and side effects of botox
- 1 Like
According to the AAOS, Botox is only recommended for people in good health to reduce the risk of side effects.
Possible side effects include:
bruises at the site of injection
drooping eyelids, which can take several weeks to resolve
eye redness and irritation
Taking eye drops before receiving Botox injections may help reduce the chances of some side effects. You should also stop taking any blood thinners a few days before to prevent bruising.
Botox isn’t recommended if you:
are pregnant or nursing
have weak facial muscles
currently have skin issues, such as thick skin or deep scars
have multiple sclerosis or another type of neuromuscular disease
