Non-invasive skin treatments like injectable fillers and treatments have the great advantage of having very few side effects or possibilities of negative outcomes. This means that virtually anyone with wrinkles or facial depressions is a candidate for treatment with injectable fillers and treatments. There are a few exceptions:
Botox Cosmetic should not be used by people who are allergic to any of the ingredients in it or who have diseases of the nervous system or heart that may increase your risk of side effects.
Restylane and Juvéderm should not be used by people with allergies to certain microorganisms known as gram positive bacteria or by people with bleeding disorders.
Sculptra is not for use by patients with allergies to its components.
Radiesse is not for use by patients who desire only short-term results or patients who are allergic to its components.
In addition, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and people with serious drug allergies should not undergo injectable treatment. Also, injections should not be performed in areas with hives, sores, pimples, cysts, or active infections.
Otherwise, everyone who desires correction of wrinkles or facial depressions is a good candidate for treatment with injectable fillers and treatments. To learn more, schedule a non-invasive cosmetic treatment consultation with Dr. Lapuerta at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas today.
