Side effects of Botox

The few side effects of the Botox treatment are not long- lasting and they subside in a few days time.

Some of the common side effects of the Botox treatment include:

  • Bruising at the site of injection
  • Nausea
  • Neck pain
  • Ptosis or droopy eyes
  • Dysphasia
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Headache
  • Stomach upset
  • Flu Ė like feeling

People who have Botox injections may develop new wrinkles as a result of the treatment, it has been claimed. Due to temporary paralysis of the targeted muscles, the neighboring muscles compensate, resulting in the production of new wrinkles.

THE SCIENCE POSTED HERE IS WRONG: the botulinum toxin cleaves the SNARE complex and allows for the vesicle containing the neurotransmitter ACh to be unable to diffuse through Ca2+ cannels. when the SNARE complex is cleved the vesicle cannot bind to the SNAP-25 and thus ACh cannot be released and the muscle cannot react to the signal from the nerve.

Botox can be used for enlarged prostate glands; for especially those who are high risk for surgery.
