Approved for cosmetic use by the FDA over a decade ago, BOTOX® Cosmetic is largely considered one of the safest and most effective ways to temporarily reduce visible signs of aging. More than 11 million men and women in the United States have undergone BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and the rate of serious complications is so rare as to be considered negligible. During your initial BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation with Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell, specific safety concerns can be addressed and your candidacy for this treatment option determined.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Safety Concerns
The most common side effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic is redness or bruising around the injection site. Swelling may also occur but, like the aforementioned side effects, should go away on its own within one to two days. In rare instances, injections around the eyes may result in temporary eyelid drooping. This should also self-correct.
Your risks for side effects are increased when you choose an inexperienced BOTOX® Cosmetic provider. To reduce your risks and help ensure superior results, you should only work with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Harrell. Dr. Harrell has years of experience providing BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and will tailor your treatment to meet your exact needs.
