Is Botox Safe?

Botox Cosmetic is the number one non-invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States because of its high satisfaction rate and excellent safety profile.

Botox is extremely safe when administered by a trained medical professional such as Dr Michael Horn. Dr Horn is highly trained and experienced with using Botox injections giving safe outcomes.

As with all injectable treatments, there are some potential side effects associated with Botox, but most of these side effects are mild and temporary. Pain, tenderness and bruising may be associated with the tiny needle that is used to administer Botox Cosmetic. Some patients have reported a slight headache after treatment, again which is temporary.

The most common significant side effect is a drooping eyelid which occurs in less than 3% of patients treated with Botox Cosmetic. The drooping eyelid side effect is short term and can be treated with eye drops.
