Are dermal fillers safe?

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?
