Botox Treatments – Botox Injections Side Effects and Safety

 

 

By Tiffany Moore

 

Botox injections are getting increasingly popular with both men and women who want to look young and beautiful. The reason is very simple. Botox magically reduces and eliminates visible signs of aging considerably, and not to mention, another huge plus – no recovery time is needed.

 

By having a few botox injections in the upper face, forehead wrinkles and frown lines between the eyebrows disappear, and crows feet at the sides of the eyes are removed or softened

 

Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is a quick and simple FDA-approved non-invasive procedure. It works by paralyzing the muscles where it is injected and stops them from pulling the skin, causing fine lines. In about 2 to 7 days after the injections, the fine lines and wrinkles that are normally caused by certain facial expressions start to disappear gradually. As a result, your skin begins to look youthfully smooth and wrinkle-free.

 

Generally speaking, no anesthesia is required during the treatment, but your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream before injecting. There is no post-injection discomfort or swelling, although some patients may compare the sensation to a pin prick at the injection.

The benefits of botox treatment will not stay forever. Its amazing skin-smoothing and age-reversing effects usually last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, and you need to maintain it with repeated injections, every 4 to 6 months.

That said, a small number of people develop neutralizing antibodies to botox injections after continued use, which results in the treatment no longer being effective.

There is no doubt that botox works but the big question remains – are botox injections without side effects?

 

Are Botox Injections Safe?

Botox has already been used since the 70s and are relatively safe when administered by a trained medical professional. As with all treatments, there are some side effects associated with botox, but most of these are mild and temporary.

Pain, tenderness and bruising are common side effects, and some people experience a mild headache, nausea or flu-like symptoms after botox injections. Botox injections on the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids.

You should let your doctor know if you feel something that just does not seem right after the botox injections. He or she will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.

Not everyone is a good candidate for botox treatments. They are not recommended for people with certain rare neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome. Also, botox therapy should not be used if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
