"Cosmetic injectables are medical procedures that carry risks and these need to be weighed up with the perceived physical and psychological benefits.
"You should make sure you go to a clean and fully-sanitised clinic and see an experienced practitioner, who knows what to do if there is a complication, this is particularly important in remote areas."
The WA Department of Heath said cosmetic clinics who hire rooms in salons must hold a Health Service permit.
The permit requires all locations where treatments take place to meet professional standards for medical procedures.
The department said cosmetic injections and treatments can result in serious unwanted effects, including blood clots, skin necrosis (premature skin death) and blindness, although it said they are rare.
Other serious adverse effects include severe infections, allergic reactions, severe bruising, disfigurement, scarring and muscle weakness.
An investigation by the ABC's Four Corners last year revealed Australian doctors had treated their first patient who had gone permanently blind from having dermal filler injected into her face.
The investigation found 98 documented cases of blindness caused by fillers.
The Australasian Foundation for Plastic Surgery says no one knows how many cosmetic procedures are being performed in Australia or New Zealand, as statistics are not being collected.
This is because cosmetic surgery can be elective and a range of different practitioners perform procedures, from specialist plastic surgeons to dermatologists.
