This video FAQ sees Clinical Director of Cosmetic Courses Adrian Richards explore the question “what are the contradictions of Botulinum Toxin treatment?”…
Botulinum Toxin is a very safe and effective drug used to combat aging through wrinkles and fine lines. As with all treatments there will be some patients who cannot be treated. This can be from a variety of reasons and here we outline some cases where you would not be able to administer Botulinum Toxin injections:
- Those who are pregnant, it is not licensed in this area to treat a pregnant woman
- Those who are breast feeding. For the same reason as above, this is not a licensed practice
- Anyone with active infection
- Those with an autoimmune disease
We go into this further within our courses, if you work abiding by our recommended guidelines we can assure there will be no problems in your practice of Botulinum Toxin when it comes to treating the wrong patient.
