Are dermal fillers safe?

Having the opportunity to now be able to augment your facial features and soft tissue with erase is now accessible at a larger scale, with the likelihood of you or someone you may know wanting dermal fillers done.Of course, being aware what dermal fillers are perfectly fine however, you may have more questions you’d like answered.

What are dermal fillers made of?

Of course, we are all very conscious of what we put in our bodies and into our skin, especially wanting to know what the side effects of that would be. So, it’s only right to be curious about what dermal fillers are made of. Simply put, dermal fillers are an injectable gel that contains a substance called hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring phenomenon in your skin and body. This will ensure your dermal fillers are compatible with your body after some minor side effects and will biodegrade over time.

Are they permanent?

The dermal fillers are used by Dr Nicole are all temporary and contain hyaluronic acid. Temporary dermal fillers have unfairly been tarnished and confused with the reputation of permanent dermal fillers, which do compromise your safety if you do opt in to having them.

This is because temporary dermal fillers are simple biodegradable that can be dissolved if needed, and their results can be built upon. Permanent dermal fillers on the other hand, contain materials such as silicon which cannot be built upon and have severe risks. If you opt in for permanent fillers and do not want to continue with them, they would then have to be removed which creates an unknown after effect.

Who can perform dermal fillers?

As it currently stands in the UK, you do not need to be a medical professional to perform dermal fillers. This is a concerning issue because although anyone can perform them, it certainly doesn’t mean you should just go to anyone who state they can perform them. The rise in ‘Botox parties’ and injectable treatments being carried out by non-medical professionals, such as hairdressers, has in fluxed severely and can be very dangerous. The wisest option is to opt in for qualified medical professionals who are also trained in aesthetics to perform your treatments. We understand going to your local beautician may be appealing due to the locality and price, it’s simply not worth the risk compromising your health which can lead to serious safety concerns.

Dermal fillers are helping many people by giving them the opportunity to enhance their natural beauty. But it’s important to understand that these treatments will need to be done under safe supervision.
