Each year, over 4.5 million BOTOX® injections are administered in the United States. Despite its history of success, many patients are still concerned about the safety of BOTOX®. Like any type of medical treatment, BOTOX® does come with certain risks and complications, but the vast majority of them are minor, and the chances of someone suffering a serious side effect is very small.
Some of the complications associated with BOTOX® are:
- Temporary eyelid droop (fewer than 1% of patients)
In order to help you avoid these side effects, our experienced Denver aestheticians will carefully review your medical history before treatment. Certain medical conditions may conflict with BOTOX® and prevent you from being a good candidate. If you have a neurological disorder or cardiovascular disease that would make BOTOX® unsafe for you, we can discuss alternative skin treatment options with you.
