Why Filler Needs to be Injected by a Professional

Why Filler Needs to be Injected by a Professional

Dermal Filler is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the UK and can be used to enhance facial features, restore lost volume to the face and hands, and boost feelings of self esteem and confidence.

Filler treatments, whilst perfectly safe if administered correctly, are not regulated and can be injected by anyone. This can lead to life-altering complications that are entirely avoidable. At London City Skin Clinic, we are passionate about the positive effects that fillers can have on our patients, which is why we’ve created this guide on why filler must always be injected by a registered professional to achieve the best results.

1/ Fillers can be offered by people without sufficient training

Demand for dermal fillers has increased over the past decade. Unlike Botox, you don’t have to be medically qualified to legally carry out dermal filler treatments. This means that anyone can access and offer the service if they wish to.

With such high demand for the service, there are unqualified practitioners who have begun to offer it without having received sufficient training on how to correctly inject dermal fillers. Beauticians are likewise not governed by regulatory bodies who set standards of practice, therefore don’t need to provide the quality of service that is required of a doctor.

Seeking filler treatments from someone who has not been trained to do so can be unsafe and lead to unflattering results.

It is therefore vital to ensure that your treatment is being administered by a professional.

Our Medical Director Dr Robby Bajaj has over 12 years experience in aesthetic medicine, having performed thousands of dermal filler treatments with full accreditation and training.

2/ Quality and genuinity of products

Just as anyone can inject filler treatments, you don’t have to be a medical professional to order dermal fillers online. Without the correct training, it is unlikely that anyone would be able to source high quality products for their services.

When you receive filler treatments, you have every right to know exactly what is in the product. Dermal fillers are made using Hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists naturally within skin and muscle tissue, meaning it should be harmless if injected properly.

Medical professionals have access to the best products available which lead to the best results, with minimal side effects.

3/ Less chance of complications

Non-aesthetic treatments are administered by injecting substances into the body. This can come with complications if not carried out by a trained professional.

Avoidable complications of filler can include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Asymmetrical finish
  • Infection
  • Damage to the skin
  • Lumps
  • Ulceration
  • Rashes/redness
  • Undercorrection/overcorrection of lines

These complications are rare, and unlikely to occur if your filler is injected by a medical professional. If you seek a medically trained doctor for your procedure, you should only experience mild redness, swelling and bruising that will disappear within a few days.

Their training also enables them to manage any adverse reactions to the treatment with confidence, so that you continue to receive the highest quality of treatment following your appointment.

Quality of care

4/ Quality of care

When receiving any non-surgical aesthetic treatment, your quality of care will always be at the forefront of a qualified professional’s mind.

Dermal fillers can be an incredibly personal procedure, and the delicacy of the patient’s frame of mind must be accounted for during every step of the process. Professional medical practitioners are required to make you as comfortable as possible whilst adhering to the standard of treatment outlined by the Department of Health.

All Dermal Filler procedures at London City Skin Clinic are carried out by Dr. Robby Bajaj who will ensure your safety and wellbeing are his top priority, whilst remaining fully transparent about your chosen treatment.

5/ Access to Indemnity Insurance

Aesthetic practitioners are required to have medical indemnity insurance cover which reputable insurance providers will not give to beauticians, and non-medically qualified therapists or practitioners.

If your practitioner does not have indemnity insurance, you could be at risk if you experience complications with your treatment.

6/ Beautiful results

Fully trained doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are familiar with facial anatomy and are able to sculpt your appearance to create the beautiful results you envision.

Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available because of the stunning finish they can achieve for your face and other areas of the body. Whether it is your desire to have more contoured cheekbones, a softer complexion or restore lost volume in your face and hands, your needs will be in safe hands when you contact a trained professional.

Choosing a professional

Before you book a consultation, always ask your practitioner:

  1. To see your practitioners qualifications and experience
  2. Which product they plan to use and where it’s made
  3. If there are any side effects to the treatment
  4. If you are covered if anything goes wrong with your treatment

This will prevent any unwanted complications and ensure that all products used are safe and of the highest quality.

Dr Robby Bajaj has over 20 years experience providing highly skilled treatments that begin with a consultation to establish your needs. As a fully registered member of the General Medical Council, he puts the health, safety and wellbeing of every patient at the heart of each procedure.
