I had Botox done on Saturday for my forehead wrickles and 11

Customer Question

Hi there,
I had Botox done on Saturday for my forehead wrickles and 11 line using 50 units of vestabel Botox by a cosmetic nurse prescriber.
Upon injection I got no swelling or pain but I did feel dizzy and anxious afterwards. I'm assuming from the anticipation as this is my first ever Botox treatment.
I just wanted to know if such treatment can trigger anxiety or any kind of mental health effect ? Or is it just me causing the anxiety due to over thinking ! My prescriber was unaware of any mental health side effects in her experience but I just wanted further reassurance !
If I was to have any form of allergic or severe reaction - when would like be likely to occur?
I think I am over thinking things hence the anxiety but I just wanted further thoughts on the issue !
Hope you can help!
