Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation In Washington, D.c.: How Safe is Botox® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment in the Washington, D.C. area. There are good reasons BOTOX® Cosmetic has maintained its popularity over the past decade: It is quick, minimally invasive, and incredibly effective. But is it safe?

As with all facial rejuvenation treatments offered by Dr. Roberta Gartside, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been approved by the FDA. This does not mean it is right for everyone. Dr. Gartside is a board-certified plastic surgeon who holds the comfort and safety of our patients as top priorities. During your initial consultation she can help you determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is the best choice for you.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Risks

The most common side-effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic is redness around the injection site. This is temporary and should not cause significant discomfort. Complications including eyelid drooping are rare and also temporary, but should be brought to the attention of Dr. Gartside if they occur.

The best way to reduce risks and help ensure optimal results is by working with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Gartside who has the medical background necessary to help ensure your safety and satisfaction.
