Dealing With Cosmetic Procedures Can Be A Dangerous Deal: The Risks Of Anti-Wrinkle Injections from ‘At Home’ or Rogue Injectors

January 18, 2016

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures and their popularity continues to grow each year. Popular anti-wrinkle injections can do wonders for the wrinkle-prone skin, but on one condition: they should be administered only in a professional clinic and only by an experienced qualified practitioner.

With approved, quality products in a suitably equipped environment and qualified doctors and nurses, the procedures are extremely safe.

However, some people tend to ignore the advice of specialists and undergo anti-wrinkle injections performed by unqualified practitioners in clinics and also by so-called “work at home professionals”. There are numerous risks involved in this practice and the results can be disastrous.

What are the risks of undergoing anti-wrinkle procedures administered at home or by unqualified practitioners?

One of the most troubling aspects regarding anti-wrinkle injection procedures administered at home or by unqualified practitioners is that they can affect your health and wellbeing at a high level. Patients are exposed to numerous health complications when they accept to be administered anti-wrinkle injections anywhere else other than at a certified medical cosmetic facility.

The associated risks of undergoing such treatments range from blindness and droopy eyes, to severe allergic reactions.

Dr Garry Cussell, founder and clinical director of Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia explains: “When dealing with anti-wrinkle home administered treatments or unqualified practitioners, people put themselves at severe risk of allergic reactions and extreme infections. This is a serious health concern not only for the patients who choose to undergo such inadequate procedures, but for the entire medical world as well. In most cases, patients return to their medical clinic, struggling with severe pain, having problems swallowing or even controlling facial muscles to a clinical degree.”

Why do these situations occur?

Although home anti-wrinkle injections promise to offer spectacular results for a fraction of the price of treatment carried out in professional health clinics, the results speak for themselves.

Experts argue that the resulting side-effects can have a severe impact on the patient’s health and mental condition. “The physical and emotional well-being of the person struggling with the lasting impacts of such improper procedures can be greatly affected”, Dr Cussell agrees.

An expert injector will always know the difference one millimeter can make. Everything needs to be taken into account, starting from the shape of the patient’s eyes and eyebrows, their bone structure, the right dose that needs to be injected and even the patient’s age.

A certified medical clinic is the only place a qualified practitioner should administer anti-wrinkle injections to their patients. “People are drawn to the possibility of saving a lot of money, and sometimes they go as far as injecting these substances themselves. They need to understand that, in the end, it is not worth it at all,” Dr Cussell emphasises.

What can be done to prevent people from being exposed to these dangerous injectors?

Medical experts and associations from all over the world are raising awareness about this concerning issue. People need to have a rational and objective opinion regarding these unqualified medical practices, and take action accordingly.

“The most important thing they need to understand is that anti-wrinkle injections are a medical procedure and not a beauty treatment. The only medical staff allowed to administer such treatments are Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, Facial Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists and Registered Nurses trained in facial anatomy and cosmetic treatments,” concludes Dr Cussell.
