    However, clients needn’t worry because Botulinum Toxin is actually one of the safest and most researched drugs in use today, second only to Viagra! As long as you stick to your aftercare instructions and make sure that the person treating you is a qualified, trained medical professional, the risk of suffering any major side effects from a Botox treatment is incredibly small.

    But if you’re still curious… here they are!

    In his latest video, Dr Tim (who has been treating clients for over ten years) explains that treating the forehead with Botox carries slightly different risks than other areas of the face because of its relation to your eyebrows.

    BOTOX Side Effect: Heavier Brow

    The most common side effect of having Botox treatment is causing a slight heaviness to your brow. This is medically known as a brow drop and happens to around 1 in every 100 clients. This side effect is dependent on a number of factors such as injection pattern and muscular structure.

    Brow drops, while more common than other side effects, are actually fairly harmless (if a little annoying) because they will gradually wear off along with the treatment and cause no lasting damage.

    Other, more rare side effects include:

    • Droopy eyelids,
    • Double vision,
    • Dry eyes

    Dr Tim stresses that these side effects are incredibly rare and can be avoided completely by injecting safely and avoiding important structures.
