Botox is no longer only for A-list celebrities. Every year millions of men and women choose Botox to safely and temporarily reduce wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet, taking years off their looks. Is Botox really safe? Are there any unwanted consequences? Relax, because…

Botox is Safe:

Botox, or Botulinum toxin, is derived from Clostridium botulinum. When used in limited doses, Botox is safe, and even life saving. From managing children with cerebral palsy to treating headaches, Botox can be used to safely treat more than 20 different medical conditions. Quantities used for injections (less than a few billionth of a gram) are neither dangerous nor harmful. A paper published in the JAMA Dermatology journal found that procedures involving the use of Botox caused side effects in l in 3,333 cases they studied. Botox treatments are a short-term alternative to surgical treatments like facelifts or brow lifts. No general anesthetic. No recovery time.

But…

Botox is safe as long as experienced physicians perform the procedure. Practitioners need to know where to inject and how much to inject to ensure that patients lose their facial expressions. Before you try Botox, look for a doctor who has been performing Botox injections for at least several years, and also check to see if your doctor is board certified in plastic surgery. Make sure that the Botox used is 100% authentic and full strength—ask to see the bottle! There should be a hologram on it. Due to its popularity, Botox is offered by ob-gyns, dermatologists, dentists and even in beauty salons; We do not recommend opting for treatment by anyone unless it is a doctor with years of experience.
