As fillers grow in popularity, some people may seek low cost, quicker or easier to reach alternatives to visiting a respected medical practitioner. However, this can cause many problems regarding your looks and health, which is why you should only have fillers done by a trusted medical practitioner.
The team here at Dermoperfection have trained at some of the world’s most reputable and pioneering providers, giving you the confidence that you’re in safe and skilled hands whilst we achieve the “best version of you”. We are also a CQC regulated clinic, which ensures all the services we offer are caring, effective, responsive and well-led.
Some of the reasons why you should avoid fillers from someone who is not qualified include:
- They won’t assess your suitability for the treatment
A report from Save Face showed that up to 77% of people who complained about their fillers in 2020 had not received a face-to-face consultation with the prescriber prior to this. Our medical practitioners will always ensure you’re booked in for a consultation to determine your suitability, by carefully examining your skin and checking the feeling of your muscles.
These clinics are also less likely to be interested in your aftercare, one of the most important aspects of your treatment. Some patients have even said they were blocked online by these so-called professionals when following up about their fillers, however we are always here to answer any questions you may have.
- You will actually spend more than if you chose someone qualified
Have you ever heard the phrase that choosing cheap means you’re spending more in the long run? This is definitely true of fillers, because although you will initially pay more with a proper medical practitioner, you can be assured you get the results you want, whereas if you skimp on price, you may end up with undesirable results that you will need to spend more money on correcting.
- You won’t get the natural results you’re looking for
Nobody wants to be told they have a “trout pout” or “frozen face” – our medical practitioners will only administer a certain amount of filler to ensure you look natural, whilst still creating noticeable results, whereas someone who isn’t qualified is less likely to follow guidelines, so could give you much more filler than you really need. You can always book further treatments to slowly top up the amount of filler you receive in a safe and natural looking way.
- You could experience a range of nasty side effects
Medical practitioners undergo many years of training – and they are always advancing their knowledge too. Someone who doesn’t have medical training is more likely to make mistakes, which could result in serious infections, permanent scarring, drooping facial features, burst blood vessels and muscle paralysis. Some people have even reported experiencing skin necrosis (death of skin) in the area treated, which can require surgical intervention to cut it out, or a skin graft to correct.
- You won’t receive fillers from the most trusted brands
The brands we work with, like Juvederm and Aliaxin, have years of scientific research behind them to create safe and desirable results! In contrast, if you visit someone who isn’t qualified, you’re more at risk of receiving unknown fillers that were bought on the internet from overseas, in order to save on costs, which could be very harmful for your skin and body.
All accredited practitioners can be found on the Save Face website, who hold rigorous standards for non-surgical cosmetic treatments – you can find us on there!
