In brief: Botox is proven safe

Botox (botulinum toxin) has a proven track record for safety.
It works by preventing the muscle movement which creates wrinkles. If you stop using botox, it will stop working. Therefore, then the wrinkle creation process will continue. If you use Botox regularly, you can reduce wrinkle formation. There is no "rebound" or "bounce back" if you try Botox and then stop using it.

In brief: Yes/No?

Botix is safe is administered by a trained individual.
Know who is giving it to you, what their training is and don't be afraid to go elsewhere. Wrinkling is an aging process so we all get more wrinkley as time goes by, so slowly, and time can do so much! but, not as an effect of stopping the botox. Just what the Botox was keeping you from doing. I hope i place a new wrinkle in that.

In brief: Yes and no

Botox has a very safe profile.
It improves wrinkles for two to four months after an injection. The wrinkles will recur if the Botox is stopped but they are not worsened.

In brief: Yes it is safe

You will not develop any new wrinkles simply because you stop having Botox or Dysport injections.
What will occur and may be misinterpreted as "a result" of Botox is that when you stop, the lines or wrinkles that were successfully improved with Botox will now reappear. Also, of course with age and other factors such as weight loss, sun and smoking, more lines will appear.

In brief: Safety of Botox

YES, Botox injections are the #1 non surgical treatment in the world! Stopping the 3 x's a year injections will NOT cause a rebound excess wrinkling effect.

In brief: Safe

Botox is safe.
It has minimal complications when performed correctly. Botox wears out over time and you may develop wrinkles when it stops working as you start wrinkling your skin with the previously paralized muscles.

In brief: Botox is very safe

Botulinum toxin type a is very safe in the doses used for cosmetic purposes and when administered by a very experienced physician.
It is available as botox, Dysport or xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a). Side affects are usually very minimal if any. When you stop using the product, your muscles and skin will basically go back to how they were here is a link: http://www.Drbentkover.Com/procedures/botox-worcester-boston.Shtm.
