What we do
Facial injections are much safer than cosmetic surgery. The minimally invasive procedures have been evolving with the help of advanced technology. That increases the safety of injections and injected substances.
Botox, for example, one of the first derma filler products, is made of the bacteria that causes botulism. This substance blocks nerve activity and creates a temporary reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. This toxin is still available and used successfully in many settings, such as James Christian Cosmetics.
Many products in the Juvederm line of injected substances are made of a sugar the body produces naturally. Hyaluronic acid is safer because it is one-hundred percent natural. Nothing foreign is injected into the body. A prescription is required for it.
The latest one to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is marketed under the name of Volbella. Volbella Facial Injections are available for the lips and the lines around the mouth, which are called perioral rhytids. The exciting aspect of this product is that it can last up to twelve months.
Common Side Effects
Most injections carry the same common side effects, which can last anywhere from two days to one month. They include swelling, itching, discomfort, and redness at the injection sites. Some patients experienced small lumps and firmness also at the injection site.
A consultation is needed prior to the beginning of any treatment. Patients can schedule one at one of ten different locations of James Christian Cosmetics. There are a few factors that can eliminate people are candidates for specific products. Those with severe allergies, are pregnant, or taking certain medications will not be able to safely have some injections.
The occurrences are far less frequent than risks of cosmetic surgery. The potential for serious risks is rare, but it does exist. Infection is always a risk when the skin is punctured. If the product is accidentally injected into a blood vessel, complications may be permanent.
Scarring and temporary scabs are possible. Severe side effects include blindness, stroke, and vision abnormalities. It is important to seek an experienced professional, such as those at James Christian Cosmetics.
Consider all options carefully. It may be wise to try creams and serums available over the counter at first to determine if the results are acceptable. Do not rush into procedures because everyone else seems to be having them done. Think for yourself and make sure all possible side effects are fully understood before making a decision.
