Is BOTOX® Dangerous?

happy botox patient
Many of our patients ask about the safety of BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin, which sounds dangerous but is very reliable when prepared and administered correctly.

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a long, successful, and safe history of use. The wrinkle-relaxing treatment received FDA approval for aesthetic purposes back in 2002 after extensive study and rigorous clinical trials. The safety profile has been proven through more than 16 years of research and illustrated in over 528 peer-reviews journals.

Some patients experience mild side effects after receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic, such as temporary discomfort at the injection site. However, the risk of suffering from significant adverse effects after treatment is very low. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration received just 36 reports of serious side effects following the cosmetic use of BOTOX® between 1989 and 2003.

The number of individuals choosing BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles continues to grow. Every year, millions of people receive Botulinum Toxin Type A injections and are satisfied with the outcome. These patients enjoy smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

However, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment isn’t without risks. You should always visit an experienced, licensed provider. Your risk of side effects is much higher if your injections aren’t prepared or administered properly.

Our licensed nurse injectors take every possible precaution to ensure a safe treatment. They perform these injections frequently and have been trained in advanced techniques. During your consultation, they will happily provide more information about the safety of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
