These are our 5 Golden Rules for Safe Injecting

Understand the anatomy & identify danger zones

Possess fundamental anatomical knowledge of the treatment area to avoid complications.

Choose the right tool

Pick the appropriate equipment in order to deposit product with precision.

Execute the right injection depth

Inject into the correct plane to prevent damage to important vessels and nerves.

Inject the right volume

Depositing too much product may lead to vascular compromise.

Be familiar with the emergency protocol

Although vascular complications are uncommon, injectors must know what to do in the event of an emergency.
