Woman spent two months in the hospital after injections at a spa!

In today’s world of beautiful decors, impressive websites, and eye-catching advertisements, it is quite difficult to know that the person you’re trusting to do your injectables is qualified to being doing it. Spas and “media-spas” are constantly bombarding the public with special offers and enticing deals for Botox and fillers at “better than physician” prices, but bargain shopping in the cosmetic industry isn’t always the best idea, and can sometimes be devastating like it was for this woman. Please make sure you know whether or not your injector is qualified, and don’t let price be the deciding factor. You may save a few hundred dollars at a medi-spa, but you may end up spending thousands to correct what goes wrong. Read the full story by clicking here, and as always, let us know if you have any questions or comments. We’re always happy to help.

Lisa’s Lumpy Lips! Longer lasting fillers aren’t the best option… (via Celebrity Plastic Surgery)

Think permanent fillers are the way to go for Lip Augmentation? Think again… Check out this great article on the risks of using permanent and long-lasting fillers in the lips.

Lisa's Lumpy Lips! Longer lasting fillers aren't the best option... Last year, we told you about Lisa Rinna’s corrective lip surgery that she needed to fix the lumpy oversized lips she got from silicone injections. As you can see, her lips look dramatically better than they did when they were overflowing with silicone, but that doesn’t mean Lisa is out of the woods in terms of developing further problems.

Does Green Tea cause extra bruising after Botox and Filler injections??

Green tea causes easy bruising, bruising after injectibles, bruising after botox, bruising after juvederm, Botox New York City, Juvederm, Radiesse, RestylaneGreen tea is full of powerful antioxidants, which have great health benefits, such as a decreased risk for heart disease, increased ability to fight certain cancers, anti-inflammatory effects, weight loss, and an increased longevity. However, if you are taking green tea supplements, or drink a large amount of green tea daily, you also need to be aware of the side effects.

What many people don’t know is that large amounts of green tea (particularly green tea extract) can have a powerful blood-thinning effect. This makes it difficult for your body to form a blood clot, and may lead to excessive bleeding and bruising after any invasive procedure or surgery (including injections and small in-office procedures). The blood thinning effects of green tea are most profound with consumption of 10 or more cups a day, which is a “dose” that can be easily exceeded with supplements like green tea extract.

This is not to say that you should stop your green tea… just be aware of it’s effects as a blood-thinner, and make sure to tell your health care provider if you take it (or any other herbal supplement for that matter).  Most of us wouldn’t think of telling your plastic surgeon that we take green tea supplements before having something as simple as a Botox injection, but this piece of information is actually a very important one. The effects of high-dose green tea can be powerful enough to result in significant bruising even from the tiniest needles and the smallest procedures, so don’t forget to say “green tea” when your doc asks “What medications do you take?”
