Question: What are the potential complications associated with Botox and how common are they?

Answer: There are several minor complications associated with Botox, the most common of which would be associated with the actual injection which would involve redness in the area of the injection or bruising.  Both obviously go away rather quickly.  A more serious complication would be that the Botox inadvertently relaxes a muscle that it was not intended to causing a side effect such as a droopy eyelid or an eyebrow that won’t raise.  This unfortunately cannot be reversed but fortunately the side effect typically wears off relatively quickly within about 6 weeks.  Ultimately, Botox is exceptionally safe and in experienced hands is extremely consistent with incredibly low risks of complications.
