Before you make a concrete decision on whether or not to go ahead with any kind of surgical treatment, you need to be sure you have looked at it from all angles; this means the disadvantages as well as the advantages. You should also examine the safety aspects so that you can be confident your procedure is going to have a positive outcome. Many people may worry about undergoing facial injections for the first time, particularly with regards to their personal safety and health and although this is generally a very safe treatment, it does help if you are already familiar with the background of the procedure, so that you are equipped with the knowledge to make an informed decision.



How safe are dermal fillers?

When properly administered by a trained professional, laser skin & vein clinic micro needling can be highly effective and are normally very safe; however, there are still some risks associated with this type of treatment that you should certainly be made aware of before going ahead.

Dermal fillers are not the same as Botox, they are made up of hyaluronic acid that is already present in the body, where it is used to lubricate joints and moisturise the skin cells; acid levels naturally drop as we get older and this leads to lines and wrinkles forming. The injection of hyaluronic acid is designed to flood the facial cells with moisture to plump up the face and smooth out any wrinkles that might have become permanent. Many people prefer this type of anti-wrinkle treatment because it uses a natural substance rather than a toxin to boost the complexion; it also does not freeze the muscles to smooth out the skin – as Botox does.

Allergic reaction can sometimes be a concern with dermal fillers and you should let your surgeon know if you have ever had a reaction to something similar before; however, results like this are very rare and generally occur with the use of permanent fillers, which contains ingredients other than hyaluronic acid. The beauty of using a natural product to boost moisture content is that it is unlikely to cause any damage because it eventually disperses back into the body at a reduced level. Permanent fillers will have other chemicals mixed in with the solution, which makes an allergic reaction more likely. Most reputable clinics will not offer permanent fillers because of the chemical content and because it is harder to maintain a fresh look that takes skin aging into account if the filler is injected and does not disperse. If you are interested in temporary fillers, you should book an appointment with the Pearl Dental Clinic; this is a London surgery that works with a specialist surgeon to provide an improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles; call today to make an appointment or to enquire about the available treatments.
