Cons: May cause temporary weakness or drooping in nearby muscles, not suitable for all wrinkle types, requires repeat injections.

Alternatives: Dermal fillers (for volume), other wrinkle reduction procedures (like lasers).

Recovery Time: Minimal downtime, some bruising or swelling at injection site is possible.
