Is Botox is safe? Yes, Botox is safe! Small doses of botulinum toxin found in Botox can stop the contraction of muscles for 3 to 4 months. This was first used to help cure patients suffering from strabismus (crossed eyes) a blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking). When used as a cosmetic agent, it stops the muscle contraction in the facial area that will temporary get rid of wrinkles for up to 4 months.
