Is Botox® Safe?
The FDA approved Botox® for medical use in 1989, and it has stayed in continuous use since then. It revolutionized the treatment of conditions like muscle spasms, eye muscle disorders, and even excessive sweating. Although the name sounds intimidating, botulinum toxin does no damage to the nerve or muscle. Muscle contractions go back to normal when the toxin wears out and stops acting on the nerve.
Is There Any Downtime with Botox®?
You can go back to your usual activities after your Botox® treatment. Some people notice some minor bruising or sensitivity at the injection sites, but this goes away within a day or two.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
If you have lines and wrinkles around the forehead, brow, or eye area and want to relax them away, you may be a good candidate for Botox®. Adults of all ages can receive Botox®, including younger people who want to maintain their smooth skin. You may not make a good candidate if you have had an allergic reaction to any botulinum product.
