This is a routine procedure that achieves highly successful results for the vast majority of patients. However, as with any medical procedure, it is essential that you understand the risks involved
The potential complications are listed below, most of which would only occur if the product was to be injected into the wrong place.
Ptosis (Droop of eyelid or eyebrow): To avoid the possibility of this occurring, Stephen McCulley doesn’t inject the sensitive eyelid area, which could potentially paralyse the muscles that elevate it. He also avoids injecting too much product into the forehead, preventing it from becoming paralysed and therefore affecting the position of the eyebrows.
Asymmetry: Although, the same injection will be performed on both sides of the face, there is a small chance that one side can take a greater effect compared to the other.
Bruising: It is not uncommon for localised bruising to occur, however any bruising is likely to be minor and short lived.
Allergic reactions: It is exceptionally rare that patients experience any allergic reaction to the treatment, however it still poses a potential risk.
