5 Red Flags to Look Out For When Getting Cosmetic Injections

Cosmetic InjectionsCosmetic injections continue to increase in popularity. Unfortunately, along with this trend has come an ever-increasing number of cosmetic injections being done at parties, in salons, or in other settings by non-medical professionals. If you are tempted to try this out for yourself, consider the five red flags listed below that indicate it might not be a good idea.

1. Suspiciously Low Cost

The saying”if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”could be stated here. Quality cosmetic injections are more pricey than just a few bucks because they are made with high-quality ingredients that have undergone rigorous testing. Remember, you are also paying for a professional’s immense skill and training. Therefore, if you come across a very low price for cosmetic injections, this is most certainly a red flag.

2. Unlicensed Provider

A licensed provider should perform cosmetic injections. Many people agree that is true of cosmetic surgery, but they don’t hold to that standard about an injection. However, just as you would demand a cosmetic surgeon be licensed and qualified, you should require any professional who injects you to be licensed as well. Otherwise, this is a red flag.

3. Lax Health and Safety

You should demand and require any cosmetic injection to be given safely, adhering to all applicable guidelines. There should be a high level of safety and health promoted and a sanitary environment involving both the rooms and the tools used. If you see that a space is dirty or unkept, chances are this is a red flag.

4. Non-Medical Setting

As mentioned above, there has been an increase in party-style cosmetic injections as of late, as well as those that take place in a salon or other non-medical setting. This shouldn’t ever be the case. Just as you would never let your neighbor operate on you in her home just because she can do it easily in a party setting, you shouldn’t get cosmetic injections in a house or other non-medical setting.

5. Inability to Answer Basic Questions

A professional should be able to answer any questions you have about any cosmetic injection you are considering, especially if they claim to be experienced in performing these treatments. They should be able to explain the science behind the treatment, walk you through each step of the procedure, and have the appropriate recommendations for aftercare.
