It’s 2019, and you probably feel like it’s time to do a little sprucing up. You want to take care of yourself a little better. You want that old youthful glow that you once had that’s now slowly disappearing. Considering doing cosmetic procedures to give yourself a little lift? Be wise. Make sure your doctor is very careful with handling those needles!
The World Health Organization defines a safe injection as one that does not harm the recipient, one that doesn’t harm the health care worker, and one that doesn’t harm the community. It doesn’t just have to be about cosmetic injections. It includes vaccinations and IV procedures. When you are consulting with your plastic surgeon about the cosmetic procedure you wish to have done, be sure to walk out of there with no question left unanswered. Be certain you know all of the potential risks and decide for yourself whether the benefits outweigh them. Make sure that the plastic surgeon of your choice is Board Certified and someone with years of experience that you can trust. Take all of the precautions you need to take before signing that waiver to begin that procedure.
Lots of cosmetic procedures are considered to be safe. However, one important factor to consider is needle hygiene. Quite frequently, people like to have their procedures done in places where it’s cheaper, but the cheaper outlets are not always promising of the best and cleanest results. Fun fact: 40% of injections worldwide are administered with unsterilized, reused syringes and needles, and in some countries this proportion is 70%. This unsafe practice exposes millions of people to infections. New and sterile needles should be used for every injection to prevent skin irritation and injection-site infections. Used needles should be disposed of in a sharps container to prevent accidental sticks to other people.
These injectable fillers and IV therapy treatments are deemed relatively safe by the FDA, manufacturers, and plastic surgeons. Though good results are expected of every procedure, they have their share of possible side effects, some more serious than others.
