Is Botox® Safe?

Q: Dear Dr. O’Donoghue, I see a lot in the news about Botox® – is it safe? – Linda, Boca Raton, FL.

A: Dear Linda,

Over 1.6 million people chose to have Botox® Cosmetic injections in 2008, and according to the American Academy of Dermatology, Botox® is growing faster than any other cosmetic procedure. It is the most safe and effective way to treat lines and wrinkles of the forehead and crows feet. 

It must be administered appropriately by a licensed and professional; individual, so make sure you ask the person performing the procedure how man y patients they have treated, what medical training they have, and what are the possible side effects.
