First of all, regarding the people in Birmingham and all over England for that matter, who cannot and should not undergo Botox treatments are those suffering from infections at the targeted injection area or those who have previously had an allergic reaction to the botulinum toxin type A microinjections. Another category of people who cannot undergo the Botox treatment is represented by the individuals with muscle problems or chronic diseases affecting the muscles such as Myasthenia Gravis or Eaton Lambert syndrome. Young people under the age of 18 are neither recommended nor allowed to undergo a Botox procedure and the same rule applies to pregnant or breastfeeding women.
The other category of potential patients who can undergo the Botox treatment but the practitioner should very cautious when administering it are the people with higher bleeding risks because the treatment will results in severe post-procedural bruising. Here we can mention the people suffering from blood clotting disorders such as hemophilia, people with on-going medication treatment with Warfarin, Heparin, Aspirin and anti-inflammatory pills, and in some cases even herbal medicines such as Gingko Balboa, St. Johns Wort and Vitamin E. People with excessive muscle weakness or wasting such as patients with history of stroke or Bells palsy and people with chronic breathing problems are also included in this category.
