QUESTION

Too Much Botox Injected into an Area

I just had Botox for the first time and during administration, my doctor accidently pushed all the contents of the syringe instead of the measured dose. I understand that this is uncommon but am worried about what might happen. He said it would be fine but I'm not convinced. Will I experience any side effects?

ANSWER

Too much Botox

Administering too much Botox in one area can cause the Botox to leak into areas that you don't want blocked. Typically you would see the desired and undesired effects of Botox at 2 - 3 days. If you don't have any problems at that point it is unlikely that you will have problems as time goes on. I hope this helps.
