Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Safe?

May 29, 2013

Yes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is very safe when the injections are performed by someone who has been trained in the procedure. Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso is a board-certified plastic surgeon and Gina Gathings-Giancola is a skilled clinical aesthetician. Both are trained in injecting patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic in a clean, safe environment.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular injectable given to people who are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Millions of successful BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are performed every year. It is a diluted form of botulinum toxin A, which blocks the nerves responsible for sending signals to muscles in specific areas of your face. This keeps those muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles. The nerve signal can stay blocked for months, but will begin working again after several months. When this occurs, you may return for further treatment.

Side effects are minor and are usually the result of an injector who does not know what he or she is doing. This is why you should only undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments with a professional.
