The facts on cosmetic injections
Cosmetic injections are aesthetic treatments that address signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Although there are various cosmetic injections, two of the most popular include:
Botox is the most popular form of botulinum toxin, the main ingredient in these injections. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles.
After a Botox injection, your muscles can't contract, causing a temporary change in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Dermal fillers are another type of cosmetic injection that we use to plump up your skin and smooth out imperfections and fine lines.
Various dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, Poly-L-lactic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite. These dermal fillers are temporary, and your body absorbs them over time, requiring more injections.
What are the risks?
Although Botox injections and dermal fillers are generally safe, they don't come without risks. It’s important to understand the risks of both injectables before undergoing treatment.
Botox and fillers are different cosmetic injections with various risks and side effects. The most common risks associated with Botox injections include:
- Pain at the site
- Bruising around the injection
- Facial weakness
- Skin drooping
Like Botox, fillers also can lead to bruising around the injection site. However, they come with other risks as well, including the following:
- Skin rash
- Lumps under the skin
- Asymmetrical results
- Acne eruptions
- Skin damage and scarring
- Ulceration of the skin
Infections are another risk related to both Botox injections and cosmetic fillers. Although severe complications aren't common, you should be aware of the issues related to both before you choose either treatment.
Finding a licensed professional is key
Getting injections to enhance your appearance isn't something you should take lightly. Dangerous side effects and complications can happen if you allow an unlicensed practitioner to stick a needle in your skin.
