Botox and fillers are a great way to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases and enjoy rapid results with virtually no downtime. When injected properly by a qualified provider, the results look beautiful and natural. But like nearly all cosmetic treatments, there is the possibility that something can go wrong, particularly if the person administering the injectable(s) does not have the proper qualifications.
If you are considering Botox or fillers to soften the signs of aging, the team at SILK A Medical Spa encourages you to review the qualifications of your provider very carefully.
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE LEAD TO BETTER OUTCOMES
First, consider how important your provider’s qualifications are to your ultimate results.
Botox works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that repeatedly contract and contribute to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Fillers temporarily replenish lost volume in areas like the cheeks, temples, smile lines and lips.
Successful Botox and filler treatment require a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy as well as how these products behave. Injectors must be able to ascertain exactly how much product is needed and carefully inject it into the proper muscle or at the proper depth to achieve the desired goals.
If not administered properly, Botox injections could end up relaxing the wrong facial muscle or fillers could plump up the wrong area of the face. You could end up looking artificial, lopsided or asymmetrical, frozen or perpetually surprised.
YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE ON THE LINE
When it comes to Botox and fillers, it is not just your appearance on the line. Your health and safety depend on the qualifications and trustworthiness of your provider. There are many media reports of non-health professionals using Botox or fillers irresponsibly — or worse, using counterfeit or contaminated product. Irresponsible use of injectables or counterfeit/contaminated product increases the risk of scary side effects like infection, bad scarring, lumps or bumps, rashes, temporary facial weakness or drooping.
