BotoxⓇ Side Effects
The use of BotoxⓇ injections to smooth away frown lines and wrinkles was first documented in 1989 and gained FDA approval by 2002. Since then, millions of doses have been administered to patients safely and effectively, becoming the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic procedure in Canada, and throughout the world. If you are interested in receiving these injections, but you would like to know about the possible BotoxⓇ side effects before obtaining treatment, then we can help. At LightTouch Med Spa we make sure all of our patients are fully informed about treatment options before going forward with their injections at our Markham facility. So, please read on to find the information you are looking for!
What You’ll Experience During Treatment
Our highly skilled medical practitioners will first discuss what you are looking to have done and the results you want to achieve, to create a treatment tailored to your individual needs. Once decided upon, they can apply a numbing agent on your face before injection to reduce any discomfort you may otherwise experience during the treatment. There can be some discomfort created from the injections, but overall, it is not a painful process. We use cannula needles to administer the BotoxⓇ, as they are thinner and less noticeable during application.
Where You Can Place Injections
BotoxⓇ injections can be used to treat an array of ageing effects on the face. Lines on the forehead and wrinkles between the eyebrows can be addressed. Laugh lines around the mouth and crow’s feet around the eyes can be smoothed away. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, then BotoxⓇ can be injected into the underarms and palms of the hand to help treat it.
Possible Side Effects
With millions of successful treatments of BotoxⓇ around the world, these injections are a safe and effective way to offset the telltale signs of our ageing bodies. However, there is always a small risk of side effects associated with any cosmetic treatment. These effects include blurred vision, drooping or swelling of the eyelids, dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the site of injection, fatigue, headache, neck pain, and decreased eyesight.
Tenderness of the application areas and temporary redness are normal in patients post-treatment. In rare cases, there is also slight bruising that takes place. Overall, these symptoms are usually mild, and all that is needed is an ice pack to help relieve swelling or discomfort.
