    Thanks for posting, I haven't had the treatment myself but I do know that people can have very different experiences of Botox. I will include some information here.
    There are also lots of useful videos on YouTube where people describe their experiences with the treatment.
    What have you been advised by medical professionals in terms of using your less favoured leg after the procedure?

    thank you, I will look at your information. It's not a leg, it is my left arm.
