Complications and Side Effects of BOTOX

BOTOX®

Complications & Side Effects

What are the possible side effects of BOTOX®? - What kinds of complications can result from BOTOX® injections?

BOTOX® Side Effects

The most common side effect of BOTOX® treatment is temporary bruising. Another side effect is headaches, however this is a rare occurence. If headaches do occur, they are usually gone within 24 to 48 hours.

Potential BOTOX® Complications

A small percentage of patients develop eyelid drooping. If eyelid drooping does occur, it is usually gone within three weeks. The eyelid drooping is caused by migration of the BOTOX® from the treated area to an adjacent area. This is why you shouldn't rub the treated area for at least twelve hours after your BOTOX® procedure and why you are told not to lie down for three to four hours after treatment.
