What is Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers can be composed of a variety of substances, some naturally occurring and some synthetic. One of the most common compounds used in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, and it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and volumized.

It’s used to “plump up” skin, adding volume to places like the cheeks and smoothing out wrinkles, especially around the eyes, lips, and forehead.

Our tried and trusted brand names include Juvederm, Sosum, My Filler & Amalian.

Gradually over time the body reabsorbs the hyaluronic acid, results generally last 6 to 12 months. Some dermal fillers will typically last 12 months or longer, depending on the amount used.

What are the Common side effects of dermal fillers?

Fortunately, the risk of filler injection side effects remains low and most complications are minor and transient. These often include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Unevenness
  • Redness
  • Uncomfortable
  • Bruising
  • Itching

These are things that will improve within a short period of time or with minimal intervention. However, although very rare, more serious side effects are possible.

What are serious side effects of dermal fillers?

Some of the most concerning side effects of dermal fillers include arterial occlusion, particularly central retinal artery occlusion. If filler is inadvertently injected into an artery, the viscous nature of the filler can result in blockage of that artery, which can lead to necrosis or ulceration of the skin. When the filler goes into the artery supplying the retina, (Periocular Complication) the result can be permanent blindness.

While less common, you should be aware of the following side effects:

  • infection
  • leakage of the filler through the injection site
  • nodules around the injection site, which may need to be surgically removed
  • granulomas, a type of inflammatory reaction to the filler
  • movement of the filler from one area to another
  • injury to blood vessels
  • blindness, due to Periocular Complications the filler gets injected into an artery, blocking blood flow to the eyes
  • tissue death, again due to blocked blood flow (VO)

Dermal Filler Side Effect Risk is Low Overall

Fortunately, the risk of serious complications from fillers remains low, but I can’t emphasize enough that these risks are even lower in the hands of experienced hands.

Risk factors to be aware of

Not suitable for:

  • your skin is inflamed for any reason (for example, if you have a rash, active acne, hives, etc.)
  • you’re allergic to any of the filler ingredients
  • you have a bleeding disorder
  • you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or under the age of 18 (safety hasn’t been studied in younger age groups)
  • Your skin is susceptible to scarring (e.g., you have a keloid or an overgrowth of scar tissue)
