As we welcome in 2019, we wanted to talk about those who wish to start the “New Year New You”. 2018 saw a huge rise in people looking to have Botox® and Dermal fillers. With this rise in popularity there was inevitably a rise in poor treatments being carried out by unregulated and untrained injectors. We wanted to write a short blog reiterating these dangers as in January 2019 you may decide to start the New Year by having these treatments for the first time.
December has aged our skin
The month of December tends to age our skin more than we think. Drinking alcohol, late nights, going on holiday to catch some sun will likely dry out and age your skin. You will realise you probably look more tired than you feel and this is why you might think about having treatments such as Botox® or a Dermal Fillers. As we blogged about before (link), choosing these treatments needs to be a careful decision.
What do you need to look out for?
With a rising number of poor injectors the media has decided to make Botox® and Dermal Filler treatments a topic of interest. Emmerdale was one of the latest to focus on the topic. In the video below you will see unregulated and unlicensed dermal fillers being injected and causing an allergic reaction leaving the patient in a coma. Whilst this might be a rare complication it certainly demonstrates what can go wrong if you choose to have treatments provided by someone who is not a Doctor.
Whilst December may have been full of parties, going to a Botox® and Dermal Filler party is a bad idea. A party for treatments is an informal setting and takes away the formal process of a clinical consultation before undergoing treatment. We strongly advise for you to choose a clean, sterile clinical setting where you see a healthcare professional before undergoing treatment.
Choose your Doctor carefully. With the continued problems of regulation within the Botox® and Dermal Filler community there are many who provide risky treatments ultimately cutting corners in patient care. A recent story highlighted a nurse who put patients at risk of HIV when providing them Botox® treatments. If you are unsure of your Doctor’s license then you can check it online by going on www.gmc-uk.org
