Yes. Botox is very safe if injected by an experienced practitioner. Best if injected by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon or other specialist in facial cosmetic surgery. Ask the doctor where they trained to do botox, how many patients treated, any complications. Avoid practitioners who learned from a weekend course. Many nurses are doing this procedure many without proper supervision.
