The Risks of Facial Fillers: What You Need to Know

Facial fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles, improve shallow contours, and enhance the appearance of scars. While they can provide immediate results, they can also come with a variety of risks. In this article, we'll discuss the potential side effects of facial fillers, the dangers of buying fillers online, and the importance of finding a qualified practitioner.The most common side effects reported in clinical trials are facial weakness, drooping of the eyelids and eyebrows, localized pain, swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site. In rare cases, injections have caused double vision, dry eyes, or difficulty swallowing or breathing.

The FDA has issued an official warning urging consumers to never buy dermal fillers on the Internet. These products can be false, contaminated, or harmful. In addition, long-acting dermal fillers have higher rates of complications such as infections and nodules. Injecting facial fillers into blood vessels can cause blockages that restrict blood supply to tissues.

Overuse of fillers can also result in lip wrinkles and impaired attachment of facial fat pads and some degree of skin irregularity and aging. The FDA has asked manufacturers of facial fillers to update their labels to include additional warnings about the risk of accidental injection into blood vessels. Physicians should also fully inform patients of the risks associated with the procedure, know the signs and symptoms of accidental injection of facial filler into blood vessels, and have a plan to treat patients if this occurs.In conclusion, facial fillers can provide immediate results but come with a variety of risks. It's important to find a qualified practitioner who is experienced in administering these treatments.

Additionally, it's important to avoid buying fillers online as they may be false, contaminated, or harmful.
