Are there any risks associated with getting Botox injections?
Like any medical procedure, there are risks to consider. If a Botox injection is administered properly, side effects are rare. However, according to Health Canada, they may include:
- temporary drooping of the eyelids
- bruising at the injection site
- mild headaches
- flu-like symptoms
If any reactions occur, they usually resolve themselves within 24 hours without medical intervention being required. If a botox injection is improperly administered, however, it can lead to an adverse reaction with more serious results. That’s why it’s important to always work with a qualified professional!

Botox treatments typically last between three and six months, depending on the area treated. After receiving the treatment, the effects of Botox can be observed within two weeks and may last for up to three or four months before gradually wearing off. However, as muscle activity gradually returns over time, the lines and wrinkles may begin to reappear and need further treatment in order to maintain results.
Knowing what questions to ask before undergoing treatment for Botox in Surrey can help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
Key Takeaway: When administered properly by an experienced professional, Botox injections offer quick results within three to seven days of the initial injection session.
