Fillers are one of the most popular nonsurgical procedures around. They can add volume to your lips and cheeks, creating a plumper and more youthful appearance.
But in the hands of the wrong people, filler injections can be dangerous.
You wouldn’t have your wisdom teeth extracted by a beautician. You’d go straight to a qualified dentist. It’s what they’re trained to deal with. The same goes for injectable beauty procedures.
Fillers Are a Medical Procedure
While fillers may not be classed as prescription medication, but they are a medical procedure. Filler injections aren’t merely superficial skin treatments. Rather, they’re needle injections, designed to penetrate your skin to a depth that can increase the likelihood of complications.
Certified professionals undergo medical training to safely administer fillers. This includes how to safely use needles and cannulas, how to address problems like infections and allergic reactions, and even how to correct any errors.
Choosing a Professional
If you’re considering fillers, the first thing to be aware of is to never book your injections at a beauty spa. Always choose a qualified and experience professional to perform your treatment.
The face has an array of underlying sensitive structures, like eyes, vessels, and nerves. If the person administering your injectable fillers is careless and untrained, there is a huge risk of infection, scarring, damage, and even tissue death.
That’s why it’s important that only certified professionals inject your filler. They’ve undergone the training and understand facial anatomy. They know there are certain areas to avoid, and how to safely create your desired results.
It’s Okay to Ask to See Before and After Photos
If your potential injector doesn’t have before and after photos of previous treatments, treat it as a red flag. Little to no photographic evidence is often a sign that the person providing fillers doesn’t have a great deal of experience.
Professionals, on the other hand, are proud to show you what they are capable of, so you know what to expect.
Having your fillers done by a certified professional who has the experience and evidence of past patient’s results ensures you achieve the results you’ve been dreaming of.
