Aesthetic Medicine: Keeping It Safe

When sitting down with clients for their consultation, the question of safety often emerges in our discussion. How safe are Aesthetic Medicine treatments?As a physician,

I have the unwavering belief that patient safety always comes first, and I take the time to educate my clients on the risks and benefits. So how do we keep things safe when administering these treatments? There are many factors to take into consideration to ensure that the treatment is conducted in the safest way possible:

  1. Always using sterile technique – this involves keeping the work space clean, properly preparing the client and ensuring that all products are handled in a manner that avoids any possibility of contamination.
  1. Using the highest quality of products that are available. This involves carefully studying the products that are out there in the market, understanding the molecular structure and manufacturing process, and of course looking at the studies and safety data.
  1. strong understanding of Safhuman anatomy is essential; knowing which regions are safe and more importantly, which areas have a greater risk of complications or “red flags.”
  1. Injection technique is also integral in determining the safety of the treatment.  Taking the extra effort and time to do slow filler injections, sculpting with only small amounts of product at a time significantly reduces risks and overall provides a more natural result.

When pursuing Aesthetic Medicine treatments, it is always important to ensure your physician is highly skilled, knowledgeable and experienced. By following these safety principles, I have seen my clients enjoy wonderful results throughout the years.
