Possible side effects are temporary redness and mild bruising.
Rarely, if the neuromodular migrates to the upper eyelid, one can experience a slight drooping of one eyelid which corrects itself after a short while. Occasionally, temporary numbness of the forehead and transient headache may occur.
Contraindications for neuromodulator treatment include:
- history of adverse reaction to a neuromodulator,
- infection at the injection site,
- and any neuromuscular disorders (Myasthenia Gravis, Eaton Lambert Syndrome, Myopathies).
As neuromodulators are considered a cosmetic offering, cost of treatment cannot be submitted to extended health plans and need to be paid fully by the patient.
