Are there some patients who are not suitable for Botox treatment so what are the contraindications to Botulinum Toxin Treatment. Essentially Botulinum Toxin is a very very safe drug and effective in pretty much 100% of people, it’s got a very bad reputation but it is in fact very safe. However there are obviously certain people you can’t treat the most important is anyone who’s pregnant or breastfeeding because it’s not licensed in pregnancy or breastfeeding, anyone with active infection at the site of injection and there are certain autoimmune diseases which we go into detail in our courses and patients with these conditions aren’t suitable for treatment but essentially botulinum Toxin and the doses we’re treating for Cosmetic use is extremely safe and if you provide by our advice and contraindications and our medical treatment and medical advise that we teach in our courses you’re going to avoid any issues with treatment.
