What are some of the risks associated with getting either Botox or Dysport?
The risks in utilizing Botox and Dysport are minimal. The main risk is either asymmetry of muscle relaxation or incomplete muscle relaxation. A more rare risk is that the product migrates into an unintended muscle such as the upper eyelid causing a droopy lid. Side effects also included bruising, tenderness and redness. Infection is also a risk that it is extremely unlikely. For a complete list however, a patient can refer to the manufacturer’s website.
