Generally, any side effects experienced with BOTOX® are temporary. Your specialist will inform you fully at your consultation about these. Most commonly you could experience redness and swelling at the injection sites for about an hour after your injections. If you have any redness we can apply mineral makeup camouflage to the area for you before you leave.
