Beware of Fake Dermal Fillers

Beware of Fake Dermal Fillers

In recent times, dermal fillers have emerged as a very popular alternative to plastic surgery treatments. However, while their popularity has increased, so has the demand for a cheaper option. Although they can be administered at a much lower price, cheap and fake dermal fillers can be extremely dangerous to your health and here are the reasons why you should avoid them at all costs.

Unlike plastic surgery procedures, dermal fillers offer a gentle, non-surgical approach to long-lasting skin renewal. Although, like all skin treatments, their anti-ageing benefits come at a significant cost. But there’s a good reason for that. Allow us to explain.

In addition to using high-quality products, medically qualified practitioners will provide an excellent level of service and, more importantly, will meet the necessary safety requirements involved in the dermal filler procedure.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for fake dermal fillers, which are likely to put you at serious risk. With that in mind, we have decided to enlighten you on the reasons why you shouldn’t cut corners when enquiring about a dermal fillers treatment.

Fake Dermal Fillers’ Effects on Your Health

The number one reason why you should avoid counterfeit dermal fillers is that they can result in potentially life-threatening health problems. Why? Unlike the real thing, fake injectables are freely available online and are often produced in China, a country where manufacturing standards simply do not exist. As a result of this, the fake products are not regulated and are likely to contain unknown ingredients, which can lead to allergic reactions, skin infections and scarring.

In contrast, at Riverside Dental Spa, we use advanced products from the world’s most renowned cosmetic brands to ensure that we provide a safe and pain-free treatment.

The Unsafe Administration of Fake Dermal Fillers

Additionally, shoddy practitioners who administer fake dermal fillers are only likely to be interested in one thing. Profits. In a bid to make money, they will not only use cheap products, they will also bypass the research, training and care standards needed to administer dermal fillers.

Without the correct health and safety measures in place, problems are much more likely to arise and if they do, they are going to be a lot harder to resolve, as the practitioner is not likely to have the necessary knowledge or facilities to deal with them.

Select a Qualified, Established Dermal Filler Practitioner 

If you are interested in having dermal fillers, you should always do your research before and ensure that you pick a professional practitioner, who has been established for a sustained period of time and has evidence of their qualifications.

At Riverside Dental Spa, our treatments are carried out by a highly trained aesthetic practitioner, who has extensive experience in providing safe and seamless treatments.
