Why cheap can be dangerous
You may be tempted to choose your Aesthetic Practitioner based on cost, and go where it is cheapest.
I would urge you to think twice about this. The most severe complication from fillers include blindness and skin loss with scarring. There are 200 cases of blindness worldwide and 10 cases in the UK. This can happen to anyone.
To minimise the chances of this happening to you, you need to choose a doctor who is trained in anatomy and understands how the facial blood vessels interact.
Is you injector prepared for problems?
Only doctors and prescribing practitioners can hold stock of emergency medicines which are needed to treat emergency conditions. This is why it is extremely important to choose a doctor as your injector and not be tempted by specials, as properly trained doctors will have all the equipment available in the Aesthetic Clinic ready to help if needed.
Dr Booysen is happy to be contacted with any questions and she offers a complimentary 2 week review of all treatments. Reviews need to be completed within 4 weeks of initial treatment. Dr Booysen can be called with any questions after your treatment and she is happy to see you sooner if you have any concerns.
