Risks of Botox

The most common risks associated with Botox are minor and temporary. These may include bruising at the injection site, headache, temporary droopy eyelids, and muscle weakness. However, if you have a history of blood clotting disorders, there are additional risks that should be considered.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Blood clotting disorders are a group of diseases that cause your blood to clot abnormally. If a clot forms in a blood vessel, it can block the flow of blood and can be life-threatening. People with these disorders are at a higher risk for developing dangerous blood clots.

It is important to note that not everyone with a blood clotting disorder has the same risk for clotting. Some people may have a milder form of the disease, while others may have a more serious form. It is important to talk to your doctor about your specific risks before getting any kind of medical treatment, including Botox.

If you have a history of blood clotting disorders, we will work with you and your doctor to make sure that you understand the risks and that you are comfortable with the treatment.

We will also take extra precautions to make sure that we are doing everything possible to reduce the risk of any dangerous side effects. This may include using a smaller dose of Botox, or using a different type of injectable.
