Although rare, there are some cases of patients experiencing side effects after getting Botox. The side effects that occur most commonly include dry mouth, discomfort around the treatment site, neck pain, eye pain or vision problems, dry eyes, and allergic reactions. The doctor performing the procedure will always inform patients of the possible reactions that can occur prior to starting the treatment.

Q: What is the recovery time from a Botox procedure?

While there might be some redness or bruising around the treatment site immediately after the procedure, patients are usually able to continue their normal routine right away after getting Botox injections. The doctor will explain to the patient what they should and should not do after the procedure, but it is customary to not lie down for at least four hours after the treatment, to not rub or scratch the treatment zone, and to refrain from performing strenuous activities in the day following the procedure.
