Is It Safe to get Botox injections?

The answer to this question is a simple “YES”. Most people have normal problems with a botox injection. It has become a lunchtime procedure. Side effects are very few, never long-term, and rarely problematic.

Why it's done

Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. Botox injections are also used to treat conditions that affect how the body functions. Examples include:

  • Cervical dystonia: In this painful condition, your neck muscles contract involuntarily causing your head to twist or turn into an uncomfortable position.
  • Lazy eye: The most common cause of lazy eye is an imbalance in the muscles responsible for positioning the eye.
  • Muscle contractures: Some neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy, can cause your limbs to pull in toward your center. In some cases, these contracted muscles can be relaxed with Botox injections.
  • Hyperhidrosis: In this condition, excessive sweating occurs even when the temperature isn't hot and you're not exerting yourself.
  • Chronic migraine: If you experience migraines more than 15 days a month, Botox injections may help reduce headache frequency.
  • Bladder dysfunction: Botox injections can also help reduce urinary incontinence caused by an overactive bladder.
  • Eye twitching: Botox injections may help relieve contracture or twitching of muscles around the eye.

What you can expect

Before the procedure

Most people don't feel much discomfort during the procedure. But you may want your skin numbed beforehand, especially if your palms or soles are being treated for excessive sweating. Your doctor might use one or more of various methods available to numb the area, such as topical anesthesia, ice, and vibration anesthesia, which uses massage to reduce discomfort.

During the procedure

Botox injections are usually performed in a doctor's office. Your doctor uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.

After the procedure

Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. This may help prevent the toxin from spreading to a different area. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.

Common complications of botox injections

Almost everyone experiences some pain during the injection process. The pain is greatly minimized by using a numbing gel before the injection. The pain is very subjective. Some people do not feel it at all yet some others find it slightly uncomfortable. Almost nobody refuses to get repeat botox injections due to pain.

There may be some swelling at the point of injection. Immediately after the injection, it looks like one has got some mosquito bites on the face. This is very temporary and usually settles down in 1-2 hours.

Very rarely a bruise may happen. All doctors try and avoid this. Most blood vessels that are superficial can be visualized and avoided. However, sometimes we may hit a vessel under the skin resulting in a bruise. If a bruise appears, it usually settles down in a week to 10 days.


Botox injections usually begin working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the effect, you'll need regular follow-up injections.

Scheduling repeat Botox sessions

You won’t need any downtime after a Botox session, although we may instruct you not to lie down or bend over for some hours following your procedure. We might also recommend that you restrict the muscle movements in the treated area immediately following your injection, for the best and longest-lasting results.

Your results from a Botox treatment generally last for 3-4 months. If you’re a repeat Botox user, you might actually notice your results lasting longer, up to 6 months, as your muscles shorten and shrink due to previous treatments.

When you notice your results disappearing after a few months, schedule a repeat session. You may need repeat treatments every 3-4 months to maintain your best results. We don’t recommend treatments spaced more frequently than three months, or you could develop a resistance to the Botox’s effects.
