An Introduction to Injectable Complications

Dr Catherine Fairris provides an introduction to the types of complications that may occur after toxin and filler injections
Minimally invasive aesthetic techniques such as botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers are often seen as a safe and cost effective aesthetic option. If performed by experienced, well-trained practitioners, the probability of complications occurring is relatively small; however, there are complications that patients can experience.
This article will discuss the common complications that may occur as a result of botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments and will briefly state the routine management approaches. As this article is an introduction, it will not go into significant detail, but instead hopes to educate practitioners who are new to aesthetics.
