Yes, of course any medical procedure has risks they include:
Botox injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced doctor. Possible side effects and complications include:
- Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
- Headache or flu-like symptoms
- Droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows
- Crooked smile or drooling
- Eye dryness or excessive tearing
Although very unlikely, it’s possible for the toxin in the injection to spread in your body. Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these effects hours to weeks after receiving Botox:
- Muscle weakness
- Vision problems
- Trouble speaking or swallowing
- Breathing problems
- Loss of bladder control
How much does does cost?
in short, anywhere between $200-$600 depending on the individual.
But this really depends on the individual that is doing the injections. If you go to a plastic surgeon, they will typically charge the kinds of fees that surgeons are accustomed to receiving. Nevertheless, when you go to a person who can be a trained injector, these individuals typically inject Botox every day and only charge for that product and their time. BE WARNED!!! Not every Anti Wrinkle injections injector is equal. Regretably, there’s an overwhelming number of injectors that don’t have the finest training or sufficient experience to be sure that your face doesn’t look totally paralyzed.
By asking some questions about some of these topics listed above, you can have a greater chance of picking the correct injector and acquiring a good Wrinkle treatment.
Anti ageing injections
Over time patients have noticed that if they keep up with their anti-wrinkle treatments of Anti Wrinkle injections, the results last longer than their first treatment. For example one patient has reported that after a year of regular use, he now only returns once a year for a top up. Read Brett R’s story here At the opposite end of the scale, some patients find that the product doesn’t last for as long as they’d like. This could be due to lifestyle or a natural resistance. This can only be determined by having the treatment and monitoring the results. This possible resistance to wrinkle treatment is rare but will be discussed at consultation stage.
