Are their any risks ?
Botox® has been around for almost 40 years as it was first invented by an ophthalmologist in the early 1980s. Since then, millions of patients have been treated and there have been no reported long-term or permanent side effects with the use of Botox®. In other words, it is unlikely to affect your general health.
This does not meet that Botox® is without risks. Most of the negative side effects are localized to the treatment areas and are temporary. Some of these side effects including developing a droopy lid (ptosis), a droopy brow or the inability to close your eyes completely causing a dry eye. This is why it’s so important that you choose an injector who understands and deals with this facial anatomy on a daily basis. Dr Maleki and his nurse injector Simer not only have advanced training in facial injections, but also perform surgery on these muscle groups on a weekly basis. This means you are less likely to develop negative side effects and should they develop they are better equipped to fix them.
