Botox and Anti Wrinkle injections - Four ways to be safe

Botox treatments are now more popular than ever, and when you consider the many benefits that these treatments can provide, it’s easy to see why. Not only can Botox help people roll back the years and look younger and healthier than ever, the injections can also deal with other cosmetic and physiological issues simultaneously. Rarely do you ever hear about people suffering from any side effects associated with Botox treatments and injections, but that certainly does not mean that Botox treatments are not without risk. Like anything in life, it’s important to know your limits and to understand how to use Botox safely and effectively. If you’re thinking of having a Botox treatment in the not too distant future, here’s a look at a few tips designed to keep you safe with Botox injections.

 

Choose a reputable company

Botox, though highly effective and beneficial, is still a dangerous compound and is a form of toxin. Needless to say, it must be used and treated with care and respect. If you’re thinking of rolling back the years and treating yourself to a Botox injection, make sure you choose a reputable company to carry out the procedure. Don’t simply go round to your friend’s house who ordered a DIY Botox kit online, and have them inject you, as this is reckless, dangerous, and you will probably not really see any benefits anyways. Instead, go with a company such as Dr Aesthetica, who possess the necessary skills, credentials, qualifications, equipment, insurance and experience required to carry out safe and effective Botox injections. Dr Aesthetica is a medically led company to ensure your safety and treatment to the highest standards.

 

Ensure the Dr is aware of your medical history

Believe it or not, but there are people out there with underlying health issues, who expect doctors and beauticians to know everything there is to know about them, just by simply giving them their name. Your doctor will not take your name and then go digging through decades or medical records to find out your medical history, it is down to you to make the doctor aware of any underlying health issues or allergies you may have. For example, if you are taking any other medications, let them know because the Botox could potentially react with them. If you have had an allergic reaction to Botox in the past, again, let them know. This is something you simply must do, as there is no room for error. At Dr Aesthetica all patients go through a full medical history with a Doctor.

 

Use Botox responsibly

Whilst Botox injections can provide long-lasting results, results are not permanent and so you will need further treatments several months down the line if you want to continue looking your best. Some people however, take things to the extreme and will become obsessed with Botox treatments and will have far, far too many. Too many Botox treatments can be very dangerous for your health and well-being, plus they could potentially affect your appearance negatively, which is the exact opposite of what you will be looking to achieve. At Dr Aesthetica we feel it is also our responsibility to tell you when enough is enough. Managing patient expectation is important and leads to better overall care.

 

Don’t take any risks

Remember, when it comes to Botox treatments, you can’t afford to take any risks. This means that if you happen to be suffering from inflammation, muscular weakness, or even infection, in or around the area you wish to have injected, unfortunately you will need to wait another day.

    review rating 5  Decided to take the plunge and get my tear troughs done, something I've wanted ever since I was in primary school. Am so happy with the results, and even happier with my experience. Dr Farmah was kind, reassuring and professional. The filler was painless and I could see the effects immediately, I look so much more awake now. Have already recommeded to a friend who is interested, will definitely be back. Thanks so much!
