5 reasons why you shouldn’t get fillers from someone who isn’t a medical practitioner

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! You can also check out their video about why you should ensure you only choose the safest hands: https://www.saveface.co.uk/bbc-the-one-show-how-to-find-a-safe-practitioner/

So if you would like to get your fillers done by a vastly experienced team, to create results that look and feel good, please do not hesitate to book a no obligation consultation with us today.

I enjoyed my first envy facial immensely with the lovely Stuart. The results after only one treatment were amazing. My skin felt squeaky clean & definitely had a nice glow to it. I'm already looking forward to starting my course of microneedling facials. The whole team at Dermoperfection have a wonderful energy around them and make the whole experience feel fantastic ?

I can honestly say I’ve always been very very happy with the service and treatments I’ve received at Dermoperfection. A very professional and polished team who really know their stuff and how to make you look great. The proof of this is I often get mistaken for 10 years younger than I actually am so that’s a sign my treatments have been highly effective! Thank you Dermoperfection! x

What a gem ? of a place this is, so convenient to right in the heart of the city centre, Stu is fantastic, so knowledgeable, friendly and professional, he put me at ease in an instant with the concerns I had with my skin, we discussed what it was I wanted to achieve and he put me a plan together, I’m glad to say I’m over the moon with the results. I look and feel so much fresher than before. I cant recommend him and his team enough.?? One last thing, the Envy Facials are amazing.

I have been going to Stu and the team for about 18 months now and I honestly would not go anywhere else. Stu and the team are so professional, approachable and attentive. Stu always listens to my concerns about my skin and always knows what to do. He is so knowledgeable, experienced and I know I'm in good hands. I have been the most confident I have ever been since going to Stu. He really is a genius when it comes to aesthetics and works to a high standard. He will also be very honest if you don't need anything doing or will offer an alternative which also saves money. You can tell he's really passionate about what he does and it certainly shows in his work. I always feel like a million dollars when I leave the clinic!!! I am always recommending people and they have said exact same thing! Thank you!!!!
