How Safe is Botox®?
Botox® has been used for more than 20 years for a variety of medical reasons. Botox® does more than diminish wrinkles—it is also used to treat migraines, overactive bladder and a number of other medical conditions.
Botox® began to be marketed for cosmetic purposes about 10 years ago. Since then, doctors have injected millions of units of Botox®. Overall, it has been found to be extraordinarily safe—when used correctly by a qualified physician.
Be Safe: Only Get Botox® from a Qualified Doctor
The overall safety of Botox® does not mean you should get it from any provider. More and more, we’re seeing dentists and other medical professionals with little training offer Botox®. Getting Botox® from a doctor or practitioner with little specialized training in injecting Botox® can result in subpar results.
Administering Botox® even millimeters off location can produce a completely different—and even undesirable—effect. Technique is extremely important for achieving the best outcome.
Botox® parties should also be avoided. Botox® is often injected by a non-doctor during these events, and alcohol is often served. That’s especially silly because alcohol increases the chance that you will bruise after your Botox® is injected!

Since technique is so important to getting the outcome you want, choose a qualified doctor who has specialized training injecting Botox® over a clinician who makes Botox® a low priority.
