Question: My sister suggests Botox to refresh my face. Since Botox is derived from a neurotoxin, what are usual side effects?
Answer: The side effects of any medication is a long long list! But the main side effects of Botox injections are possible bruising, headaches, flu symptoms and eyebrow or eyelid asymmetry. Most of the time in properly skilled hands of a plastic surgeon the usual concern is a minor bruise but other rare side effects can occur.
