A Botox injection or Botox shot is a term that is used to describe the administration of Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botox is used most commonly to treat wrinkles. However, Botox injections were originally designed to treat neurological disorders. Today, many people use Botox to remove facial lines that are undesired such as frown lines, crow's feet and for headlines.
Generally, the amount of Botox side effects and dangers remains low. It is said that any Botox side effects usually last six months at a maximum because this cosmetic treatment is temporary in nature. If people experience side effects, they should always follow up with their plastic surgeon before having another treatment.
Many people automatically assume that getting Botox shots is dangerous because the injection is derived from a toxin, but Botox is very safe and has been in use for numerous years.
If you have questions about Botox treatments, contact the West Coast Plastic Surgery Center and set up an appointment with a Westlake Village plastic surgeon.
