Are there any side-effects?

There is a very small chance of experiencing severe side effects for any facial aesthetic treatment. Most commonly, people find some bruising, swelling or tenderness around the targeted area. Most people are able to return to work after treatments and find it has done little to affect their plans for the rest of the day. You may find the side-effects settle after a few hours, but the area can still be a little tender over the next couple of days.

Do facial aesthetics pose any kind of risk?

Research has shown that these non-surgical procedures have proven to be safe and low-risk. It is uncommon for anyone to suffer any severe side-effects or long-term problems. Due to the low rate of associated issues surrounding the treatments, facial aesthetics have always been preferred in comparison to a face lift or surgery.
