Safety of Repeated Injectables: What Do the Studies Say?
If you’re considering scheduling a Quality Facial Injectables Plan that involves anti-ageing and wrinkle-reduction injections, you’ll want to know that repeated Anti-Wrinkle Injections & Facial Dermal Filler Injectables are generally considered safe for suitable patients as long as a TGA approved substance is used by an experienced and skilled Injecting Clinician. But there are some risks, so be sure you read these before you have a procedure.
Although there are dermal filler injection complication risks, even in the hands of great cosmetic injectors with years of experience, most are mild and transient.
That notes, some injecting procedures carry higher risks (liquid rhinoplasty, for example). More serious risks and serious complications are fortunately rare; and if you choose a clinic with good sterilisation protocols and highly skilled injectors, your risks can typically be minimised to some extent.
Risks from dermal fillers are not non-existent, though, so be sure you ask about the range of risks of dermal fillers before consenting to this cosmetic procedure.
Here are two different medical studies on the topic of Safety of Injectables – here’s what the non-biased researchers found.
Injectable Facial Fillers or Dermal Volumisers
Researchers in India were concerned about whether or not bone fillers were causing any long-term damage.
The fillers made of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles are smaller than 50 nanometres ( a human hair is 80,000 nanometres). Researchers questioned whether they could conceivably accumulate in organs.
- When tested in animal studies for 28 days, blood, liver, and organs showed no accumulation of the nanoparticles.
- The antioxidant defense mechanisms were not changed, indicating the use of the fillers was safe.
Facial Injectables, Facial Fillers and Granulomas
Injectables may cause the appearance of granulomas in some people (a granuloma is a collection of immune function cells which are known as histiocytes). Usually granulomas occur because of an infection in the skin. Even this rare potential side effects may be overcome by medical treatment, and at Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing, our Surgeons and Doctors and Senior Nurse Injectors are all trained in how to best manage any potential rare complications.
A great injector can screen for potential problems relating to injectables and will also have quality treatment protocols in place – along with expert knowledge – should any rare side effects occur.
A great injector will also help you to avoid “Filler Over-Use Syndrome.”
