  • Botox Treatment

  • Possible Side Effects

  • The side effects of Botox treatment are mainly related to the effect of Botox on local muscles.

    • As with any injection, Botox treatment can cause temporary pain, swelling, redness, bruising, headache or discomfort at the injection site.
    • Rarely, patients have been reported to develop a slight lowering of an eyelid (ptosis), or slight lowering of the forehead. This is temporary and usually resolves in a few weeks.
    • Some patients may have an uneven or incomplete response to treatment.

    Botox does reduce the action of the muscles of facial expression. Patients with neuromuscular disorders should inform their doctor before therapy and Botox therapy should not be administered during pregnancy.
