Is Botox Safe?

shutterstock_59306794 Botox has been safe for millions of patients the world over. There may be the rare risk of allergy to one of its non-active products but I have yet to see an allergery in any of my patients after tens of thousands of units I have injected over 20 years. People are afraid of Botox, because they think they are being injected with the actual bacteria that causes botulism. This is not the case. The manufacturing of Botox is under very strict guidelines by the FDA government in which the serum that is produced by the botulism organism is used to produce  Botox, but the actual organism or bacteria is NEVER injected. The public often doesn’t realize that many of our drugs today are engineered by using bacteria to produce medicine. Examples of this are Insulin. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare, but if something is not right patients should always get medical help right away if symptoms occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), rash, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
