What Are The Risks of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are naturally occurring synthetic substances. They are injected into the folds, creases, lines, and tissues of the face for the purpose of reducing wrinkles and improving facial fullness. In 2017, over 2.7 million facial filler procedures were performed in the United States according to data gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa, led by Dr. Solomon Laktineh and Agnes Lech, RN provides safe and innovative skin care, body contouring, laser and medical aesthetic treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Huntington Beach, Greater Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.

According to the AAD, these side effects clear within 7 – 14 days even if their onset is almost immediate.

Rare Side Effects of Dermal Fillers

When Should You Not Use Dermal Fillers?

Medical spa providers don’t recommend undergoing dermal filler procedure if:

Avoid Self-Use Online Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler procedures are usually not covered by health insurance. This may prompt you to purchase a cheaper manufacture from the online black market in a DIY kit. There are dangerous repercussions to these self-injections that have been reported time and again in the media and medical literature.

For instance, online fillers tend to contain a wide variety of non-sterile compounds, such as hair gel. These substances can cause infections, allergic reactions, and cellular death. Improper injection technique may also lead to lumpiness, swelling, embolism, and in extreme cases, blindness. There is an official warning issued by the FDA to not purchase dermal fillers online. They may be contaminated, fake, and harmful.

Facial Fillers are Effective and Safe

Dermal filler treatments when performed by reputed medical spa experts are safe and effective. You should open the book to a med spa treatment if you want to reduce the signs of aging. Don’t shy away from asking for certifications and training in relation to the procedure. This will help you make sure that you are in safe hands and receiving the treatment from an experienced and trained injection provider.
