What are the risks and side effects of BOTOX® injections, can I have an allergic reaction?

Before any consideration of Botox injections, patients consult with Dr. Hernandez about their overall medical condition. The doctor will take every precaution to insure against any and all side effects. Allergic reactions are very rare. The doctor has not seen any cases of allergic reactions to Botox after treating thousands of cases during her many years of practice. To minimize other potential risks it is important to have injections performed by a skilled plastic surgeon who is acutely familiar with facial anatomy.
