Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular treatment that can be used to help augment facial features and soft tissue in the face, such as the cheeks and lips. With people becoming increasingly curious about dermal fillers on what they are, what can they do for you, if they are safe and where you can get them from. We explore the answers to your burning questions and hope to shed some light on dermal fillers in Manchester.

What are dermal fillers made of?

We are all very sceptical and conscious of what we put into our body and onto our skin, with increasing products being able to provide you with instant results its only natural to be curious about what dermal fillers are made out of. Dermal fillers are an injectable gel that contains a substance called hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin and body which ensures that your dermal fillers are compatible with your skin after some minor side effects and therefore naturally degrade over time.

Are they permanent?

No, the injectable dermal fillers used at Heaton Mersey and all reputable aesthetic clinics use temporary fillers due to the fact that they contain hyaluronic acid. Temporary dermal fillers have been in the spotlight under mistaken controversy due to the reputation permanent dermal fillers have received which do compromise your safety if you use them. This is because temporary dermal fillers are a biodegradable gel that can be dissolved if needed, and their results can be built upon over time. However, permanent dermal fillers use materials such as silicon that come accompanied with a host of risks and complications not forgetting you must have them physically removed if you no longer wish to keep your results.

Who can perform dermal fillers?

As it stands, you do not need to be medically certified or a prescribing professional to perform dermal fillers. However, just because this is the case, it does not mean that anybody should perform the dermal filler practice. The rise of ‘Botox Parties’ and injectable treatments being carried out by non medical professionals, such as hairdresser and beauticians is very dangerous and it is advised that only qualified medical professionals who are trained in aesthetics should perform your dermal filler treatments, because they understand your facial anatomy and your skin better than anyone else. Here at Heaton Mersey our trained professional Naila will be able to perform the dermal filler treatment in a safe manner.

Dermal fillers are helping many people enhance their natural beauty in their own ways, but its paramount that these treatments are kept as safe as possible, and this is done in the hands of the professionals.
