Dermal Fillers are extremely safe when delivered by a trained medical practitioner. Outcomes can be managed precisely by a technical practitioner, and results are also not permanent and can be rectified ('dissolved') if they are not to your satisfaction.
That said, whilst extremely rare when fillers are delivered in a medical environment by a medical professional, possible risks include:
+ Asymmetry, or uneven result + Allergic reaction + Bruising, bleeding on injection site, swelling + Damage to skin and possible scarring + Lumps of filler under the skin + Skin necrosis + Infection + Blindness
These risks will be fully discussed at your consultation prior to your consent.
Why should I see a consultant for my fillers?
Why do only consultants provide filler injections at the Cadogan Clinic?
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Hyalronic Acid and Sculptra are very popular, quick injectable treatments that can soften facial wrinkles, lines and fill out hollows to recreate the smooth contours of younger skin. Fillers are popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for ageing skin that has lost volume as the collagen that previously helped to shape and support it has disappeared.
