Cosmetic complications include vascular occlusion and infection. Vascular occlusions mostly occur in the treatment chair, and we are able to see that they are happening and treat them. An area may go white, or there may be an area of skin that looks like blotchy or there may be skin discolouration in a distant area where the skin wasn’t injected. After an occlusion, there may be an area that has small blisters on the skin. If we/you are concerned then we will need to check the capillary return of the skin. If patients see any of these things on their skin, they should get in contact immediately.

Early infections may occur after a few days after the treatment. The patient might notice increasing redness, tenderness, swelling, pain, heat, nodules or pus. Patients should contact us immediately.


– Do not rub or massage your face
– Avoid strenuous exercise for 24hrs
– Avoid excessive heat (direct sun exposure, saunas, sun beds)
– Avoid blood thinning medications
– Do not lay flat for 4 hours to avoid toxin migrating
