The Safety of Dermal Fillers

Ensuring Safety with Beauty

The Vital Role of Dermal Filler Safety at EdenMed Clinic

Welcome to EdenMed Clinic, your trusted destination for aesthetic enhancements and rejuvenation in the United Kingdom. We understand that enhancing your natural beauty is a personal journey, and your safety is our top priority. Why is emphasising the significance of safety considerations so important?. If the reasons are obvious on the surface, why do so many take significant risks? We'll explore the benefits and risks of dermal fillers, the distinctions between microcannula and needles, and the intricate vascular anatomy of the face.

Benefits of Dermal Fille

Dermal fillers have revolutionised the field of aesthetic medicine, offering patients a non-surgical way to rejuvenate their appearance. These treatments provide an array of benefits, including:

Restoration of Youthful Volume: As we age, our skin loses its natural volume and elasticity. Dermal fillers can restore this volume, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Reduction of Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Fillers can significantly diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, particularly in areas like the cheeks, lips, and around the eyes.

Enhanced Facial Contour: These treatments can help define and contour your face, enhancing your natural beauty.

Minimally Invasive: Dermal filler procedures are minimally invasive, often requiring little to no downtime.

Risks of Dermal Fillers

While dermal fillers offer remarkable benefits, it's crucial to understand the potential risks associated with these procedures.

Some patients may experience temporary bruising and swelling at the injection site. This usually subsides within a few days. If you do experience bruising, arnica can help it resolve more rapidly. We can also apply BBL, Broadband Band Light, therapy in more significant cases. The risk of bruising with dermal fillers performed by Dr. Sam is generally less than 1%.

Although rare, there is a risk of infection following dermal filler injections. There are report of infection, inflammation or swelling occuring months or even years later, after dermal filler treatment. The cause of this isn't certain and generally speaking dermal filler treatment is considered low risk. Millions of dermal fillers have been performed worldwide.

Allergic reactions to dermal fillers are uncommon, but they can occur. It's essential to discuss any allergies or sensitivities with your clinician before treatment.

 

Vascular Complications: One of the most critical aspects of safety considerations is understanding the vascular anatomy of the face, as complications can arise if the filler is inadvertently injected into a blood vessel. The most common risk area is with lip fillers. Common because it is the most injected treatment area. Therefore is associated with the greatest number of reported vascular complications. Other high risk areas inculde the nose and glabella area. Dr. Sam is an expert in dermal fillers and treats your skin with the utmost care and gentleness to reduce these risks. He does not treat the glabella using fillers, but hace wide experience in complex areas including lips, nose and under eyes, especially. 

 

Microcannula vs. Needle: Choosing the Safest Approach

 

At EdenMed Clinic, Dr. Sam uses both microcannulas and needles for dermal filler procedures. He will carefully consider each patient's unique needs and the specific area to be treated. It's important to understand the key differences between these two instruments.

Needles: Needles are sharp, pointed instruments. They are basically a knife on the end of a tube and will cut everything they touch. The benefit of a needle is that it allows very accurate, pin point deposition of filler subtance. Needle techniques may be performed alone, or in combination with a microcannula technique. Needles generally carry a higher risk of penetrating a blood vessel and therefore causing bruising, or in more serious instances causing a blocked blood vessel. 

Microcannulae: Microcannulae are thin, flexible tubes that are less likely to puncture blood vessels, making them a safer option for certain areas like the lips, cheeks and under-eye region. They are associated with a reduced risk of bruising and other complications. Microcannula technique are also much less uncomfortable than needle techniques. Dr. Sam's patients often report mild to moderate discomfort only, during their treatments.

 

Vascular Anatomy of the Face: A Critical Consideration

 

Understanding the vascular anatomy of the face is paramount to ensuring the safety of dermal filler procedures. The face contains a complex network of blood vessels, and unintentional injection into one of these vessels can lead to severe complications, including tissue damage and, in rare cases, blindness or stoke. The risk of this more seriious complication is quoted to be around 1 in 100,000. Having studied anatomy for nearly 30 years, Dr. Sam is well-versed in the facial vascular anatomy and takes great care to avoid vascular structures during injections.
