As you may already know, dermal fillers are a great way to provide a temporary solution to facial lines and wrinkles. However, recent studies indicate that repeated and prolonged use of deep tissue facial fillers can cause permanent damage or damage to the lymphatic system of the face. With so much negativity around dermal fillers, it seems like it should be a forbidden treatment. I'm pretty sure most of us dismiss it immediately, since we don't think it doesn't make us look crazy.
I know it's true, since I had the same conversation with a mum's classmate outside school. We talk about aging, emaciated feeling, the appearance of tiredness and Botox and fillers. She knows I work with Glowday and she asked me what would help with her hollow eyes and double chin. Now, I'm not a medical professional, but I know enough that dermal fillers are a potential option.
Her nose tightened and she made a 'mmmmmm' sound and then she said, 'But they're bad, right? You end up looking fake and weird, everyone would know, I would look worse than now”. You will only know that this is true when you see the before and after photos of other patients who have had fillers on their faces, so check the before and after photos in Glowday or ask the doctor to choose to see more (trust me, they'll have hundreds in the camera roll). The paradox is that you'll probably say 'Oh, I really don't see any difference. That's the point of good aesthetic work and good fillings.
They may comment that you look good, or that you're fresh or healthy, that your skin looks great, but it's very unlikely that they'll say 'oh, they've made a lot of filling'. Simon definitely shouldn't have been sent to the next round. Professionals will use different versions of fillers for different jobs. The filling with which they fill the gap under the eyes may be different from the padding they use to support the cheeks.
Different fillings will have different consistencies. Placement is key, as is the professional who really knows what is under the surface of the skin. Do you want someone who is well-versed in all things anatomical? You don't want someone who has worked at the bank for four years and suddenly decided to become a professional in aesthetics after taking a weekend course on lip fillers. There are a lot of knockoffs on the market and you will NOT want them on your face, but it would be extremely rare and unusual for any of Glowday's medical professionals to use unlicensed products.
If we found out that they are, they would be instantly removed from our platform. Fillers are an amazing tool for pausing Old Father Time and its impact on facial volume loss. They are also amazing for classifying crooked noses (non-surgical nose jobs), dark eyes (lacrimal), jawlines (jaw line filling, also known as jawline augmentation) and thin lips (lip fillers), BUT only when administered by highly aesthetic professionals experienced and medically qualified. Not only will they take their time at a consultation to explain the entire treatment plan and associated risks, but they will also be more than able to deal with any possible complications, quickly and easily.
In addition, they will use the best products available and manage them in a gentle and subtle way. All information in our Glowday treatment guides and blog articles is intended for reference and information. The information provided here is to help you make informed decisions when considering the wide range of non-surgical aesthetic treatments available. According to research published in Aesthetics, long-acting dermal fillers have higher rates of complications, such as infections and nodules.
Accidental injections of facial filler into blood vessels can occur anywhere on the face. But an FDA analysis of studies and reported problems found that it was more likely to occur between the eyebrows and nose, in and around the nose, on the forehead and around the eyes, the agency said. In general, they are safe, says Paskhover. However, there can be complications when they are used, especially if someone is not trained for it.
Most problems are not life-threatening, but in some cases, fillers have been linked to strokes and blindness. The FDA has told manufacturers of facial fillers to update their labeling to include additional warnings about the risk of accidental injection into blood vessels. A licensed healthcare professional must perform all dermal filler procedures using only FDA-approved fillers injected with a syringe. Injecting dermal fillers into the face and hands can improve the appearance of facial lines and volume loss caused by age or certain medical conditions.
The cost of dermal filler treatments varies and depends on the provider performing them, the area being treated, and the type of filler selected. In addition to skin tightening, excessive use of fillers can lead to longer-term damage, including lip wrinkles and altered attachment of facial fat pads and some degree of skin irregularity and aging, she explains. Injecting facial fillers into blood vessels can cause blockages that restrict blood supply to tissues. While many facial fillers provide immediate results, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), some of them will require several treatments over the course of weeks or months for optimal benefits, followed by occasional touch-ups.
Lately we have heard horror stories; inexperienced practitioners using unregulated fillers that cause frozen faces, numbness, blindness (globally, about 50 cases of blindness have been reported after cosmetic facial injection) and even death.

Physicians should also fully inform patients about 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.
