Botox® is a very safe treatment that has been used for more than 30 years and is FDA-approved. Botox® used in cosmetic procedures requires only minimal dose of Botulinum Toxin. Despite some false beliefs, this minimal dose is generally not harmful to the body or local tissue. Botox temporarily relaxes the treated muscle but should not penetrate to surrounding areas or cause numbness or damage to the muscle. However, it is important to get Botox treatments by highly qualified professionals.

The most common side effects following injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, bleeding/bruising, temporary eyelid droop and nausea.
