How safe are anti wrinkle injections?
Simple ways to ensure the safety of your anti wrinkle treatment.
There’s a great deal of conflicting advice around the safety of aesthetic treatments – particularly anti wrinkle injections. These cosmetic procedures have been used safely for over 20 years, with over 16 million treat-ments being performed since they became available. Contrary to common misconception, anti wrinkle injec-tions are not toxic to us; they are made from a purified protein and based on a chemical that occurs naturally in the body.
It’s important to mention that there is an element of risk in any treatment you undertake – big or small. How-ever, the risks related to anti wrinkle treatments are extremely uncommon and almost always preventable. To help ensure that you get the safest treatment possible, we’ve covered a few of the most important points below.
The right clinician
One of the easiest ways to ensure the safety of your treatment is to choose a reputable clinic that employs highly qualified and experienced staff. Check to make sure your practitioner has undergone full training, is experienced and is licensed to administer the treatment. The clinical environment that you receive treatment in should be sterile and hygienic.
With Skincare Clinics Leeds, you can rest assured you are in safe hands. Our clinician, Dr Yasser Abbas [link to profile], has advanced training and a number of years’ experience in anti wrinkle treatments. We’ll in-vite you in for a consultation with Dr. Abbas before you undergo any treatment, meaning you can take a look around the clinic and ask any questions you may have before committing to your first session.
Getting to know you
Your consultation is a chance for us to get to know each other a little better. That means you can make sure you’re happy with the clinical space and staff, and we can understand more about your medical history. Dur-ing the consultation, we’ll ask you a few questions about allergies, any medication you take and the results you’d like to achieve. Providing us with this information at the consultation stage ensures that you get the safest, most effective treatment possible.
Pre- and post-treatment care
During your consultation, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about preparing for treatment and the best possible aftercare. It’s very important that you follow the advice we give you and, should anything change with your health or medication at any point, you keep us informed.
No matter what stage of treatment you are at, we are always on hand to help. If you have more questions about the safety of our anti wrinkle treatments, feel free to send us a message today, or if you’re ready to book in, call us to arrange an initial consultation.
