How Long Do Botox Injections Side Effects Last

What is Botox Injection Used for?

An FDA-approved treatment mainly designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It has other advantages too but here we are not going to discuss them. It is injected in small quantities and optimal doses to provide the type of results the patient wants. We have thousands of happy customers of Botox Injections Dubai. If you want to be one of them you have to follow all the instructions given by your doctor and also make sure that you are not allergic to any ingredient in Botox.

You are not recommended to get the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Don’t confuse Botox with injectable fillers. Fillers are injected to plump up the facial volume whereas Botox is used for aging signs.

It is an in-office treatment of wrinkles but you don’t need to stay at night. During the procedure, the doctor uses sterilized needles to inject a small amount of botulinum toxin into the skin or muscles. He will decide how many injections you require to get satisfactory results.

What are the Negative Effects of Botox?

Almost all the injections hurt at some level but in Botox, we use very tiny needles due to which pain is almost negligible. But to eliminate the risk of severe pain, the doctor may numb the area with a local anesthetic.

The treatment is safe but several side-effects may appear after it. The patient will experience mild pain, swelling or itchiness in the treatment zone but they will disappear within just three to four days. Some other side effects include,

  • Allergic reactions
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Rash
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Twitching

Sometimes Botox spreads in the area surrounding the injection site which could be unbearable. For example, if you got the treatment for your forehead lines, then there are chances that your eyelids will become droopy and saggy for some time.

How to Avoid Side-Effects?

Not every patient experiences these side effects. Here are some instructions that will help you prevent them.
