Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment which smoothes wrinkles and is often favoured by various celebrities. The treatment can also be used therapeutically for certain muscle disorders. In the hands of a trained medical professional, Botox can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by ageing. Many have Botox injections to obtain a younger appearance and, if the procedure is done correctly, the effects can be astonishing. It can also be used to treat medical conditions such as neck and shoulder spasms, spasms of the eyelids, excessive sweating and an over-active bladder. Some users even swear by the treatment to help migraines. Botox should always be administered by a professional to ensure there are limited side-effects and a reduced chance of the procedure going wrong. Although it is rare, the potential for a treatment like this to go wrong is still present and occasionally someone may suffer an adverse reaction to the injections.
Potential hazards with Botox
As with any cosmetic treatment, there are risks involved and incorrect practices may result in a Botox treatment injury. Botox should always be administered by a medical professional who will be able to inform you of the risks associated with the procedure. There may be side-effects such as pain at the injection site, temporary paralysis in the nearby muscles or nausea and headaches. However, if you have been given the treatment by someone who was not fully trained on the correct dosage and procedure, then you may be able to make a compensation claim if anything goes wrong. If you have experienced a Botox treatment injury or have been the victim of a botched procedure then personal injury specialists like Accident Advice Helpline can assist you.
