What are the most common side effects of Botox?

Botox is generally a very safe procedure with minimal side effects. Most common side effects are typically mild and temporary, often resolving within a few days or weeks. These may include:

  • Injection Site Reactions: Slight pain, bruising, swelling, or redness around the injection points.
  • Headaches: Some people may experience temporary headaches after their Botox treatment.
  • Droopy Eyelid (Ptosis): In rare cases, Botox can spread to nearby muscles, causing a slightly drooping eyelid. This is usually temporary and can be managed by your injector.
  • Flu-like Symptoms: A small percentage of patients might experience mild flu-like symptoms for a short period.

Less Common Side Effects

  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle weakness
  • Allergic reactions (rare)

Important Note: It’s crucial to discuss any concerns you have about potential side effects with your injector at House of Aesthetics. Always choose an experienced provider to minimize risks and ensure optimal results.
