Is Botox Safe?

Botox has gotten a lot of press, both positive and negative. So let’s talk about that. Botox is often associated with botulism, or food poisoning, but that’s not really correct.

Botox is a highly purified protein that is derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum, which causes food poisoning. To contract food poisoning, the actual botulism has to be directly introduced into the body.

With Botox Cosmetic, no bacteria are introduced into the body. Instead, the purified protein of the bacteria is introduced in very, very low doses. We realize this sounds a bit technical, but it’s an important distinction.

So we’ll repeat it: No toxin is introduced into your body. Instead, a purified protein of the bacteria is injected. Very big difference.

Botox is the most commonly used non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed. Literally, millions of injections have been given in its 25-year history, and not one single reported death.

Of course, there are risks with any drug, but Botox’s safety record even beats that of aspirin. And there are few, if any, side effects.

Your biggest concern with Botox injections should be the experience of the practitioner. This single handedly determines how natural you look!

We cannot stress how important the practitioners’ experience is. You may see many promotions for “Cheap and discounted Botox”, all we can say is “Buyer Beware.” There’s probably a reason for those deep discounts and you should really find out before letting someone inject your face. At Beautique we have been performing Botox since 2002 which means we have injected thousands of Botox injections.  In fact, in 2011 we introduced our Botox Club which made it easy for our clients to get their Botox as well as many other favorite services that helps our clients look and feel their best.  When it comes to your face and body you deserve the very best!
