Dallas Botox Treatments-Most serious Possible Side Effects of Botox Treatments
Rarely Botox treatment can be associated with serious side effects that can be life threatening. The serious problems with Botox are divided into two broad categories:
Swallowing and Breathing Difficulty Spread of Toxin
There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when BOTOX has been used at the recommended dose to treat chronic migraine, severe underarm sweating, blepharospasm or strabismus, or when BOTOX Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines
1. Problems with swallowing, speaking, or breathing:
These problems can happen hours, days, to weeks after an injection of BOTOX or BOTOX Cosmetic usually because the muscles that you use to breathe and swallow can become weak after the injection. Death can happen as a complication if you have severe problems with swallowing or breathing after treatment with BOTOX or BOTOX Cosmetic.
2. Spread of toxin effects:
In some cases, the effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas of the body away from the injection site and cause symptoms of a serious condition called botulism. The symptoms of botulism include:
• loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body • double vision • blurred vision and drooping eyelids • hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia)
• trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria)
• loss of bladder control • trouble breathing • trouble swallowing
