A Younger You with Safe Results

According to a new JAMA Dermatology study, nonsurgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, and laser produce low adverse side effects and are considered very safe. [Source: NationalLaserInstitute.com]

Eight dermatology centers across the United States participated in this study. Twenty-three dermatologists used laser and other light-based/energy treatments, cosmetic injectables (neurotoxins and soft-tissue fillers), totaling 20,399 nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. Data was collected over a period of three months.

Roughly 1 in 3,000 Botox cases produced minor adverse side effects. When treated with dermal fillers, about 1 in 135 people experienced low risk side effects from the injections.

As a result, no serious adverse effects were reported. Out of the approximate 20,000 recorded services performed, only 48 experienced these minor adverse effects. This is a mere 1% who experienced very minor complications of either bruising, swelling, bumps, or redness at the site. The conclusion was that, when performed by trained and certified medical professional experts, these noninvasive cosmetic treatments are very low risk and safe to receive.

Places like National Laser Institute, the leading medical esthetic school in the nation, train medical professionals on how to safely perform these cosmetic injectable and laser treatments while following all the proper protocols.

“We place a huge emphasis on safety,” Louis Silberman, President and CEO of National Laser Institute says. “Cosmetic medicine has grown significantly throughout the years. It’s an exciting time to receive training.”

Over the last decade, National Laser Institute has certified countless doctors, nurses, physicians, and other medical professionals so that they can safely perform treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, and laser. Courses include hands-on clinical training under instructor supervision so that attendees can gain first hand experience administering these treatments to clients.

Silberman says National Laser Institute is extremely busy year round training medical professionals who are interested in offering these services to clients. Currently, the medical esthetics industry is a 10 billion dollar marketplace. In the last year, there were over 6 million Botox treatments performed in the United States alone. Dermal filler and cosmetic laser treatments are also two more of the top noninvasive treatments performed in America, according to the ASAPS.

“Many people want these noninvasive anti-aging treatments because of the low risks,” Silberman says. “When you’re receiving plastic surgery, that’s way riskier. You’re going under the knife, and you’re going to experience a lot of downtime.”
