In 2022, Save Face, a national CQC-registered company that inspects clinics across the UK, found that dermal fillers received the highest complaint rate in 2022. Dermal fillers accumulated 1,948 complaints, with 67% regarding lip fillers and 12% about cheek fillers.
Dermal fillers are an effective treatment that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles and add volume and shape to older, sagging skin. When used accurately, hyaluronic acid (HA) treatments such as Juvéderm or Restylane will encourage collagen production to provide a natural, firmer lift to the skin. Over the last year, dermal filler treatments have received complaints rather than these successes due to inadequately trained practitioners.
These practitioners are finding ways to cut costs, avoid safety regulations, and use unrealistic means to build client trust and security. All clinics must offer only regulated treatments built on expert training and knowledge. Without it, a clinic’s reputation and its patient’s health will be at risk.
What Are the Risks of Inadequate Dermal Filler Treatments?
If an untrained practitioner administers unregulated dermal filler treatment, it can lead to risks such as:
- Pain and discomfort
- Swelling, bruising and tenderness
- Facial asymmetry
- Filler migration
- Lumps and hard bumps
- Allergic reactions
- Excessive swelling
- Necrosis (tissue death)
The hashtag “#lipfillergonewrong” has taken social media by storm, with over 90 million views across hundreds of videos on TikTok. As these concerns continue to increase, a clinic must have qualified, competent practitioners to administer treatments.
