Things to Know About Botox Before Getting It

Botox – We all have heard about botox treatment, but do we really know how it works, how long botox lasts, and is Botox safe?

What is Botox?

Botox, short for Botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used medically and cosmetically for various purposes. 

My Experience With Botox

I’ll be honest. I wasn’t really happy with the results and felt so disappointed in myself for going under the needle, but that’s just me. 

What Are the 7 Potential Side Effects of Botox?


Temporary Bruising and Redness

It is common to experience mild bruising and redness at the injection site. These effects usually resolve on their own within a few days or weeks. 


Some individuals may experience a temporary headache after receiving Botox injections. This side effect is typically short-term. 

Eyelid or Eyebrow Drooping

Botox injections near the eyes, such as for crow’s feet or eyebrow lifting, carry a risk of eyelid or eyebrow drooping.
