Are there any possible side effects to BOTOX®?
In most cases there will be no side effects to a treatment of BOTOX®. However, because everybody’s physiology is different, people can be affected in different ways. A small minority of people reported the following symptoms.
- Bruising — For the majority of patients, the area of injection will appear no different. For a small minority, some minor bruising may occur.
- Bumps — A few minutes after treatment small bumps may be visible on the skin. These will disappear very quickly.
- Headache — True BOTOX® allergies are exceedingly rare. Temporary headache is the most commonly reported symptom following BOTOX® injection, though the numbers of patients who report headaches is very small compared with the amount of treatments performed. Any headache can be treated with usual painkillers.
