Patients must be informed that there may be complications. The most common are oedema, erythema and ecchymosis which are transitory. Although is no habitual, some patients may feel slight pain in the injected area.
Sometimes the muscles are not symmetric, this is because we haven’t injected the same doses of toxin in each side, or the injected points are not exactly opposite to each other. In those cases the effects may vary from one side to another. We will present the way of action for these cases.
