Is Botox Really Safe?
Botox isn’t just safe; it’s actually approved by the FDA to treat forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and even crow’s feet. That means Botox has undergone significant clinical trials to ensure that it’s safe to use and doesn’t have any long-term effects on the body.
So if Botox is so safe, why do some people feel hesitant about getting injections for forehead wrinkles?
While the jury’s still out on that one, it likely has to do with the perception of botulinum toxin, which is the active ingredient in Botox. In large doses, botulinum toxin is poisonous; however, in small, controlled doses (like the kind in Botox), it’s considered safe.
