Botox in Manhattan
Can Botox cause Botulism?
The therapeutic dose of Botox used to improve the animation lines of the forehead and regions around the eyes is markedly lower than the potential toxic doses that could cause Botulism. In general, it is a very safe product with very few side effects.
If I use it repeatedly, will I require less Botox each time and can I go longer without requiring re-treatment?
Interestingly, it appears that after repeated use, the muscles of animation that are treated with Botox are weakened and if used regularly, will result in a longertime interval between treatments with lower dosing required to produce the desired result.
