Myth-Busting: Is Botox Really Dangerous?
Although it’s an affordable, safe and life-changing treatment that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, many people are hesitant to try Botox because of a few common misconceptions. In truth, most of the negative rumors are related to the use of Botox that isn’t regulated by the FDA. When the proper dosage is administered correctly by a trained and experienced clinician, the product is completely safe and effective with little risk of side effects.
Some patients may worry that injections are painful, but when treated by a professional, few patients report any significant discomfort. Bruising is another common concern, but it’s one that most people never experience. The rare occurrence of bruising is usually related to the patient drinking alcohol within a day of the procedure or taking medications and supplements that thin the blood such as aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E and ginseng.
