Yes. It has been in widespread use for many years, with a great safety profile. As with any medical procedure, there are still risks and side effects. Dr Aaron will discuss these in depth with you during your consultation. Side effects are rare, but include:
- Mild headache (Transient).
- Ptosis (Eyebrow/eyelid drop).
- Smile/mouth movement asymmetry (With lower face treatments).
The majority of side effects of Neurotoxin treatment are self-limiting, and will resolve on their own with no long term harm remaining. This treatment is strictly not performed in people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, having IVF treatment, or planning any of the aforementioned; or in those with underlying neuromuscular conditions including Myaesthenia Gravis and Eaton Lambert syndrome.
