Any treatment comes with a small risk of complications. Most of these will present immediately and be easily identified by your practitioner whilst you are in the clinic. However, in rare circumstances, it is possible that a complication will not present until later in the next few days once you have returned home.
Please contact us immediately if you experience:
Whitening of injected area (Grey mottled skin) pain, Numbness/tingling in the area, the area feels cold to touch. Discoloured blotches in non-injected areas or the same area. If you experience any of the above please contact us and we will assist you in person. Meantime
If your practitioner asks you to film yourself performing a capillary refill test, please do not panic – this is precautionary, you can do so by following the instructions below:
Just two fingers and apply hard pressure to the area of concern for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, let go of the area and continue filming for 5 seconds. Healthy tissues should see blood bounce back to the skin within 2 seconds after the pressure from your fingers is released. You should film yourself as you repeat this a couple of times over the area
itself and surrounding areas.
We’re here for you!
