Dermal fillers are safe in safe hands. It is important to consider a well trained medical practitioner who can implement careful techniques to reduce any risk of injection into the wrong areas. As a trained healthcare professional all emergency protocols and medicines are readily available in clinic including first aid.
Simply because it is important to know what is being injected into your face. Many of times upon visiting different clinics it is not mentioned what product practitioners have injected making it difficult for you to do your own research on fillers in relation to longevity and reviews. Different brands excel better in different areas of the face. It is important that patients can make an informed choice.
Medics are held accountable for their treatments by their governing body. For example, Pharmacists are held accountable by the GPhC, Nurses by the NMC, Doctors by the GMC etc. We have vowed to protect the public by ensuring professional standards are met. Unfortunately this isn't the same for non-medics such as beauticians and hairdressers because there is no regulation or accountability for their training.
Botox is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles in the face, fillers on the other hand will fill in wrinkles and volumise areas of the face.
