Should Dermal Fillers be Left to the Medical Profession?…

September 3, 2013

Wrinkles plus Dermal Fillers = Great Results…just remember not everything is as it seems…read on:

Dermal Fillers are collagen material that is made from synthetic and natural substances. It is injected into the Dermis (The dermis is a layer of skin between the epidermis and the subcutaneous tissues, that consists of connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain in order to iron out the signs of aging; “plump up the skin, to fill in wrinkles and crows’ feet, create fuller cheeks and pouting lips.”

There has been a significant rise in demand for Dermal Filler injections as prices have dropped and although the procedure can be carried out successfully and clients are left delighted with the results, Fillers can be a ticking time bomb, research has shown a major rise in botched procedures leaving the client with disfigurement and discomfort, both of which could last a lifetime if the results are that bad they are in fact untreatable!

Dermal fillers can have severe side effects and damaging results. They have been known to splinter into tiny pieces and leave skin swollen and covered in lumps, because severe skin infections, bruising, affect eyesight if injected too close to the eye area and cause inflammation to the deeper skin tissue also leaves the client with lumps and permanent scarring.

Above and below, are some images taken from a show that was aired on TV3 last night, “Botched Up Bodies” (http://tv3.ie/specials), this shows the risks that having dermal fillers injected carry. Sarah Amoli a 37 year old Beauty Student Therapist had hers injected 7 years ago. Problems became noticeable after the first 18 months and in the past year alone she has had 3 major infections in her face. Her fillers moved and have resulted in her face becoming lumpy and unbalanced. Through fear of being permanently scarred on her face, she had tried to avoid anymore surgery but as the problems kept getting worse she sought help and was one of the lucky ones who could have the majority (not all, which still leaves the small risk of infection behind) of her fillers removed.

It really does behove a patient to find the right MEDICAL practitioners with the right QUALIFICATIONS and the right experience to do this. It is really NOT something to be injected by somebody that has NO medical knowledge whatsoever.”Niall Kirkpatrick, Consultant Surgeon (Botched Up Bodies, TV3 Aired Monday 2nd Sept 2013)

This article in the Daily Mail online written by Tamara Cohen tells the story of a lady Sarah Payne who has been left permanently scarred from fillers. Unfortunately, unlike Sarah Amoli,  Ms. Paynes fillers are unable to be removed and are untreatable. Therefore she is now left with a permanent dent on her right cheek. She regrets the decision to have fillers everyday… Read her story here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2237682/Cosmetic-face-filler-timebomb-Doctors-crackdown-rising-toll-women-scarred-botched-skin-treatments.html

Do you also think that Dermal Fillers belong solely in the medical field?
