Just How Safe are Cosmetic Injectables?

How Popular Are Cosmetic Injectables?

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, over 1 million people in 2019 got cosmetic injectable treatments. This number continues to go up year by year. The most popular cosmetic injections are Botox and fillers.

Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic injection for your facial muscles to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines. This cosmetic procedure only takes a few minutes, and the effects can last for quite a while.

The most popular fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, are HA-based. HA, or Hyaluronic Acid, is a naturally-occurring substance that is actually produced by your skin. This is the substance that provides plumpness and hydration, making your skin look supple.

Just how safe is this treatment?

JAMA, a highly respected dermatological journal, conducted a study and found that only less than 1% of recipients experienced side effects after undergoing cosmetic injectable treatments, and that these side effects were very minor. These minor side effects include some pain, swelling or bruising on the injection site. It is possible for Botox to spread to other parts of your body and can cause serious symptoms like muscle weakness, trouble breathing, speaking or swallowing, or loss of bladder control. 

However, these treatments are relatively safe when performed by a board certified and experienced dermatologist.  That’s why it’s important to find a doctor who has a lot of experience performing this cosmetic procedure to avoid any complications and any side effects. Your doctor will tell you exactly how to prepare for the procedure before coming in, and what kind of after care you need to do to accelerate the healing process.

The Results Speak for Themselves

Results for cosmetic injectables begin from one to three days after the treatment and can last for months at a time. There’s a reason cosmetic injectables continue to be one of the most popular aesthetic treatments that people opt for when it comes to anti-aging, and it’s because the results are almost always amazing.
