What Are the Side Effects of BOTOX® Injections?

Cosmetic injectables like BOTOX Cosmetic offer a broad array of benefits, but it’s also important to understand that no treatment comes with zero risk of side effects. Fortunately, BOTOX injections typically have few and minor unwanted symptoms that should pass within a few hours or days. The most common side effects of BOTOX Cosmetic are:

These issues are usually concentrated at the injection sites and fade soon after treatment. They should not limit your ability to go about your normal routine.
