• Bruising, redness and swelling

• Visibly raised areas or bumpiness at/around the treated sites

• Asymmetry, overcorrection or under correction

• Unpredictable persistence of filler, either shorter or longer than anticipated

• Prolonged discoloration of the skin such as brown, greyish, bluish or reddish colouration

• Filler material may be extruded from the skin in rare cases

• Prolonged or severe swelling

• Infection

• Rarely granulomas or firm nodules may form

• Benign tumour formation (keratoacanthomas)

• Allergic reaction with itchiness, redness and in extremely rare cases generalised allergic response such as a whole-body swelling, respiratory problems and shock

• Scarring is extremely rare

• Skin breakdown or ulceration

• Blindness

Botox - Consent Form

Injection of botulinum toxin causes weakness of targeted muscles, which can last approximately 2-4 mmonths and over this time the effects will diminish. Injection of small amounts of botulinum toxin relaces the treade muscles and can reduce facial wrinkles such as frown lines. It is injected with a small needle into the targeted muscles. Effects are typically seen in a few days and can take 1-2 weeks to fully develop.

Possible risks, side-effects, and complications with botulinum toxin include but are not limited to:
