5 Important Botox Facts


The Risks are Very Real.

Getting Botox isn't like getting a pedicure. Botox injections are a medical procedure that should be done by a certified professional in an office, not at a cocktail party.

It's possible that someone getting Botox injections could experience side effects: bruising, headache, itching, pain. Some side effects are life-threatening, from problems breathing to the toxin spreading to other areas of the body. If something goes wrong and your health is at risk, you need someone around who can handle it.
