Have you ever wondered why your face bleeds a lot, and heals so quickly?

This image gives you some idea of the arteries under our skin – the ones I aim to avoid when injecting dermal filler. There are a myriad of these arteries and smaller veins, and it takes years of training and study to become aware of where they lie, under your skin. So, choosing to come to an injector with this training is imperative. You’ve heard me say it before – don’t shop your face! By which I mean, before you choose a cheap mall or clinic option for your cosmetic injectable treatments, think really carefully. How many years has the injector been doing this work? Who is their supervising doctor? Are they able to handle complications? Book ahead, don’t make your appointment a last minute decision – be informed, look wonderful. X
