Botox or botulinum toxin is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure utilized for removing dynamic wrinkles or the face. The cow`s feet, frown lines on the forehead and eyebrows can be successfully diminished using botox injections.

The botulinum toxin injected in the wrinkled area inhibits the release of nerve impulses, so the skin is tightened up. Unfortunately, the botox treatment is reversible, so you have to inject it every 4 to 6 months in order to impede wrinkles from reappearing.

botox side effects

The side effects of botox injections are generally related to medical malpractice. If not done right, this cosmetic treatment can lead to temporary or partial paralysis of facial muscles, but also to drooping of eyelids.
Another side effect of botox is a small bruise at the site of injection, but the bruising usually lasts for about 10 to 12 days. In addition, other side effects include headaches, minor facial pain, and symptoms similar to flu. If these symptoms are present for more than 12 days, the patient should go to see the doctor.

People who have neuromuscular disorders (muscular atrophies, myasthenia gravis etc) should consult the doctor before using botox, because these medical problems combined with the use of butulinum toxin can lead to cardiovascular problems.

On one hand patients must tell about all types of allergies they have experienced so far, on the other hand, doctors performing Botox injections should first verify if their patients have any allergy or intolerance to this substance.
In order to prevent side effects of botox injections, you should know that botox is indicated only for people with ages between 20 and 65, while it is not recommended to pregnant or breastfeeding women. Also, it should not be used with the lower face.

Initially, only celebrities underwent butulinum toxin treatment, but now, more and more regular people choose this method to improve their look. Still, taking in consideration the risks and side effects related to botox injections, the potential patients should take all precautions needed so that they do not encounter any problems.
