Possible Side Effects of Botox/Dysport

Botox/Dysport is a common medical procedure, although there are some very mild, uncommon side effects that are good to prepare for in the event There are, however, some side effects for using Botox/Dysport that patients should be aware of before they consider the treatment. These include:

  • Bruising, swelling, or pain around the injection site.

Botox/Dysport Migration – Risks Associated with Moving Botox/Dysport

There are also risks of what’s known as “Botox/Dysport Migration.” This is when some of the Botox/Dysport treatment is pushed or moves to a location other than where it was injected. The most common reason for Botox/Dysport migration is putting pressure on the injection site after treatment, and laying down after treatment.

Botox/Dysport migration is rarely a significant health concern, but it can be stressful for those that do not expect it. Depending on the location of the migration, it may cause eyelid droopiness and weakness in the muscles of the lip/mouth. These Botox/Dysport treatment side effects usually clear up in 3 weeks. Following the instructions provided by Integrative Wellness Atlanta for post-treatment care to avoid the risk of migration.
