We are all familiar with Cosmetic Injections these days. Many people go through this procedure to remove unwanted lines on their faces. This is especially popular amongst people like celebrities where appearance is their bread and butter.
These injections work, and work very well. However, while there are great benefits you can instantly see from cosmetic injections, there are also consequences you must be aware of.
Here are some things to consider:
- Cosmetic Injections are known for removing wrinkles. But it will not help diminish other common skin problems caused by aging such as the age spots, sun damage and problems with pigmentation. It will also not soften your skin if your main concern is about its roughness.
- Cosmetic Injections are a costly procedure. And it’s not something you just do once and you’re done. You typically have to undergo the procedure every 3-4 months, depending on what your doctor says you to do according to your skin’s reaction to it.
- It is risky especially if you will not go to the right doctor. The procedure entails injecting toxins into your skin. Not everybody has the same reaction to those toxins. And if not done properly, instead of removing the unwanted lines, you may end up having more than what you had before going through it.
- You have to tell your doctor the vitamins and medicines that you are taking before undergoing this. They have to be informed about your health so that they would know better if you are ready for it or if you are not.
- There are many potential side effects.
Side effects of Cosmetic Injections include:
- dry mouth

- neck pain
- eye problems such as double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, drooping eyelids, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes
- allergic reactions; symptoms of an allergic reaction to Cosmetic Injections may include: itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint.
Tell your doctor or get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint. Cosmetic Injections should be thought about very carefully before committing to the procedure. Once you’ve done it, there is no turning back and you have to abide according to what your doctor tells you to do.
