When it comes to taking Botox, there are certain areas that should be avoided. These include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, and the crow's feet. Injecting Botox into these areas can cause a frozen or surprised expression. Additionally, it is important to never inject the area near the orbital bone just above the pupil, as this can cause a drooping of the eyelid that can last from weeks to months.
Not everyone is a good candidate for Botox. If you have poor general health, your skin is very thick, or you have muscle weakness at the proposed injection site, you may not be a suitable candidate for Botox. Doctors also recommend avoiding Botox during pregnancy or breastfeeding, and it should not be used in people who are allergic to cow's milk protein. It is important to consult with a qualified and experienced injector before taking Botox to ensure that you are a suitable candidate and that you are aware of all potential risks and side effects.
