In brief: Botox

Botox treatment is the most common non-surgical cosmetic surgery treatment.
The complications are infrequent but as has been mentioned, discomfort at the injection site, bruising and much less commonly laxity of the brows treated or eyelid weakness. You should discuss your health and these potential issues with Botox use with the plastic surgeon who you chose to treat you. Dr. Edwards.

The Botox website lists several rare complications that i've never seen but are possible. The overwhelming majority of Botox patients do very well and are very happy with their results.

In brief: With

With Botox it is common to have a small amount of swelling at the site of the injection, mild redness, but these are transient and will disappear in about 20 minutes.
A bruise may result as the needle penetrates a small vessel under the skin. This too is temporary. Good luck from nyc. For more info visit www.Drgrossman.Com.
