Botox has a long and well established safety record – the injection itself is safe, but the risks lie in how it’s given. So beware of Botox parties, people offering home visits, self-injecting and going to untrained staff in unregulated salons because you can’t guarantee you’ll get the result you want. Always seek treatment from a trained professional, and never buy or use Botox from unreliable sources, such as over the internet.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR BOTOX?
While it’s is well known for wrinkle smoothing and, more recently, solving excess sweat problems, the future is looking even brighter for Botox, with other uses for the superdrug on the way. Clinical trials are currently evaluating what other cosmetic and medical
problems Botox can treat, including depression, alopecia, scarring and psoriasis symptoms.
