Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Find Clinics offering Dermal Fillers in London & UK »

There are a few issues and problems with dermal fillers but these are in general very uncommon, even rare in places. These issues should be discussed with your aesthetic practitioner/surgeon to ensure you know he or she is properly qualified and that you yourself won't be added to a list of unsuccessful treatments and remain in safe hands.

Assessing Safety of Dermal Fillers

The main problem occurring with dermal fillers is facial palsy - or paralysis. This can be from the unconditioned skin reacting badly to the injections and the trauma of the needle points’. There are also cases of facial disfigurement where the collagen or hyaluronic acid has reacted badly or has coagulated under the skin. Nothing more serious than these side-effects is likely to happen and hence the procedure is generally regarded as safe.

Although dermal fillers are regarded as a safe aesthetic procedure, it is worth always consulting your surgeon on the matter, as each side effect and possible issue can be resolved with proper technique and professional experience of the aesthetic practitioner/surgeon. If you have any known allergies or you take any medicine or have a condition which makes you more sensitive to the procedure it is very important you consider the risks before having the treatment. Blood thinning medicine such as warfarin can also cause issues during the procedure and should as such be reported to the aesthetic practitioner/surgeon. With a competent surgeon who holds all the personal information needed your dermal fillers treatment should be completely risk free.
