What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal face and lip fillers are just substances that are injected into your face for cosmetic (beauty) purposes. In small quantities they fill lines and help plump out wrinkles. In larger volumes they can fill up areas such as your lips or cheeks making them appear rounder, fuller or more youthful. Contact us if you want to speak to a Solicitor about a Dermal filler claim.

Fillers are not permanent. How long they last depends on things like the type of filler and where it’s injected. Most dermal fillers used in the UK contain a natural substance called hyaluronic acid.

If you’re thinking about having dermal fillers, you need to be clear to yourself as to why you want them.

Check the person doing your dermal fillers is on a register to show they meet set standards in training, skill and insurance. You should always avoid practitioners who have only completed a short training course. Many salons claim to treat practitioners but typically this is just part of a franchise arrangement to sell products. The training that these salons offer is rarely of high value.

What are the risks of dermal fillers?

What is a dermal filler claim?

First, an anaesthetic cream might be used to numb your skin around the injection site. Injections are then given around the area of your face being treated, which is then usually subject to a bit of a massage to stimulate blood flow and allow the anaesthetic to work. Then several injections may follow around the area with the filler material, typically you will not feel it but some people do report a tension or a tightening feeling. The area being treated may well be a bit red, sore and swollen and it is not unusual for this to happen. It should settle within a few days. The risks of dermal fillers depend on whether the procedure was done correctly and the type of filler used however, some issues that appear in a dermal filler claim can be:

  • infection
  • a lumpy appearance under the skin, which might need to be treated with surgery or medicine
  • the filler moving away from the intended treatment area, which may need to be removed using surgery
  • scarring
  • blocked blood vessels in the face, which can cause tissue death and permanent blindness

How Can I minimise the risk of Dermal Filler operations?

Things to consider before dermal filler procedures

Are you aware of the risks associated with cosmetic injections?

  • Dermal fillers are in most countries prescription-only products.
  • Injecting dermal fillers is a generally considered a medical procedure that should be undertaken under the supervision of an authorised prescriber such as a medical doctor.
  • Risks are not only associated with the product. If the person who performs a cosmetic procedure lacks adequate qualification, knowledge or experience, this can cause significant adverse events.
Questions to ask during your consultation

There are questions you can ask during your consultation with a qualified medical doctor which will help you make an educated decision on whether or not to go ahead.

Question 1: Who will be performing my procedure?

Make sure the person performing the procedure is either the prescriber or a nurse under a prescriber’s supervision.

Question 2: How much experience do you have in this type of procedure?

Anyone that performs a cosmetic injection must have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, as well as the required training and experience. Injecting a filler into the wrong area of the face may have serious consequences, including blindness or even death.

Question 3: What product will you be using?

Identifying the name of the product will allow you to google the product and make sure the reviews and feedback is appropriate. It is also important to ensure you will be supported after the procedure if you experience any side effects

Question 4: What are the risks associated with this procedure and what level of aftercare will you provide?

As with any procedure, there are associated risks that the prescriber should explain to you. But it is also important to make sure you will be supported after the procedure if you experience any side effects.

What to look out for

Counterfeit dermal filler products imported from overseas exist and these can be difficult to identify. Be aware of heavily advertised and discounted procedures. Ask the right questions to make sure you’re comparing ‘like with like’ when researching clinics/doctors.

What is a community nurse?

Community nurse roles and responsibilities

A community nurse is responsible for performing many of the same duties as a district nurse. These include basic care (checking temperature, blood pressure and breathing), wound management, administering injections, setting up intravenous drips and assisting doctors with examinations and medical procedures. Community-based nurses are also able to provide vital information to clients, their families and carer/s, much in the same way as district nurses, while emergencysupport may also be required in cases when a patient is suffering cardiac arrest or a stroke. This demonstrates the many hats a community nurse must don in their line of care.

So what is the difference between community and district nurses?
