Dermal filler safety

Dermal filler safety: If you have been researching dermal filler treatments, you probably would have come across some horror stories on web forums and in the press, speaking about shocking mistakes that some unscrupulous practitioners have made, which have, in turn caused serious damage and caused untold issues to patients health and appearance. Dermal fillers can prove extremely effective in revitalising and rejuvenating the face, however, the sad fact I that there are some injectors out there who are not only seriously under-qualified to perform this treatment, but have no scruples when it comes to taking huge risks, for the sake of a few hundred pounds.

When thinking about having dermal filler treatments, there are several factors that you need to consider, in order to keep yourself safe and to avoid those practitioners that could damage or hurt you, with their lack of medical training and hunger to make a buck, at your expense.

Things to consider when thinking about a dermal filler treatment:

Dermal fillers should only be administered by a medically-trained practitioner, such as a doctor, dentist or nurse. Make sure that your chosen practitioner is registered with the General Medical Council and the clinic follows all CQC regulations.

Injector experience is key

Make sure that the practitioner has many years’ experience in administering temporary dermal fillers.

It’s all well and good having a medical degree, but the practitioner will need to have ongoing further education and training on dermal fillers as well as adequate experience. Ask to see their certificates to confirm your practitioner is trained in dermal filler injections as well as before and after photos of their previous work.
This way you know you won’t be a ‘guinea pig’ or one of their first patients to undergo the treatment.

The best dermal filler doctors only use the best products

Make sure the practitioner uses regulated, tested and approved products.

Ask to see the box prior to the treatment. It should be a new, sealed product, selected especially for your procedure and any remaining product should be disposed of properly.

Look out for products like Juvaderm, Belotero and Restylane; some of the most prestigious, widely used and trusted by some of the worlds very best aesthetic practitioners.

Dermal filler safety – take a consultation

No aesthetic practitioner worth their salt will allow you to walk through their doors and have a dermal filler injectable treatment without a pre-procedure consultation.

This meeting is hugely beneficial to both you and the doctor. It allows them to review your medical history and discuss at length, your concerns, goals and desires for results. It allows you to make your necessary checks into their qualifications and professionalism and to gain as much information and education as possible, about your treatment.

You should be given a cooling off period after this initial consultation if you wish and they should never pressure you in to having the treatment there and then.
