Dermal fillers can have complications
Currently there is a lot of press attention regarding botched dermal fillers and the many serious complications that can occur. But these are not a common occurrence, and there are many ways to avoid a negative experience.
What are the effective options for avoiding a negative experience with dermal fillers?
To reduce the chances of unpleasant side effects and dangerous complications,there are a number of things you should consider. These include:
- Choosing qualified, registered aesthetic practitioners
- Avoiding DIY filler options or filler parties
Choosing qualified, registered aesthetic practitioners for dermal filler treatment
For any aesthetic procedure you should always seek out the professionals. In terms of dermal fillers, qualified and registered practitioners will have had full training and will have gleaned an in-depth knowledge of the facial shape and structure, and the different solutions that dermal filler injections can provide. This means that complications are less likely to occur.
In addition, registered providers will work from a sterile premises and have access to the highest quality medical materials. This means that you are much less likely to suffer from a post dermal filler infection that can be incredibly dangerous.
Furthermore, qualified professionals have medical, anatomical knowledge regarding facial bone structure, muscle movement, veins and arteries as well as nerves. This dramatically reduces the chances of severe risk, as placement of the dermal filler will be carefully planned in line with your own anatomy. In contrast, without training it is very easy to inject in areas where damage can occur. In fact, dealing with the consequences of this is costing the NHS a large amount of money. To be sure of avoiding these health problems, and staying safe, you should only ever choose a professional team, like us here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic.
Avoiding at home filler options or filler parties
Dermal filler parties are often offered by people who are not registered or trained, and while having dermal filler injections with your best friends might seem like a brilliant way to spend an evening, it is often not safe. Not only is the environment not sterile, but the lack of training can lead to a range of mistakes being made by the injector. This can include:
- Too much filler and unequal results
- Lumpy filler leaving bumps and ridges especially associated with lip filler
- Not sterilising equipment
- Sharing medical equipment between people
It’s not only the impracticality of these potential mistakes that can be an issue, it is also the dangerous risks to health. Home filler options and filler parties are the number one cause of dangerous side effects and hospitalisations to correct and stabilise the issues that can arise.
