Dermal Filler is made up from Hyaluronic Acid which is found naturally in the body meaning that the likelihood of your body having a reaction to the filler is extremely rare. Dermal Fillers are only unsafe when performed by unqualified practitioners. We are proud members of ‘Treatments You Can Trust’ which is a Government-backed quality register. Safety is always our number one priority here at The Private Clinic. Your treatment will only be carried out by a highly qualified doctor, nurse of surgeon in a safe medical environment.
Dermal Fillers Before Procedure
Although the safety of fillers in pregnancy has not been established through rigorous scientific testing at The Private Clinic we do not perform any injectable treatments on patients who are pregnant or breast feeding.
There are several types of dermal fillers and a range of different formulations in the collection which you can find out more about here.
There are a few things that you can do to help ensure that your skin is ready for your dermal filler treatment. This includes not drinking alcohol for 2-3 days prior to your appointment, this helps to lessen your risk of bleeding and bruising. It is also advised that you avoid consuming garlic, fish oils, ibuprofen and aspirin for 1 week prior to your appointment as these can all thin your blood making bruising more likely.
It is also good if you have had plenty of rest the night before treatment so you arrive to your appointment feeling calm and relaxed.
Bruising and swelling post dermal filler treatments are always going to be a risk and where you can take steps to avoid these, you should always be aware that it could still occur if you are prone to bruising.
