It's The Injector Not The Syringe!

It's The Injector Not The Syringe!

Dermal fillers are great. When it comes to choosing an anti-ageing treatment that is quick and effective, it reduces wrinkles and fine lines, it is hard to argue against the use of dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers are injected into the area of concern and instantly fill and plump the skin making it smooth and wrinkle-free. They are among the most significant treatments to remedy this concern.

But as the popularity of dermal fillers has grown so has the size of the market with an estimated 160 products now available in the UK. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers are not prescription-only medicines and are classified as medical devices. This means the task of monitoring what is being injected and by who is a far more daunting one. The UK currently lacks any kind of regulation, unlike the US where less than 10 dermal filler products are FDA approved for cosmetic use. With such a variety of unlicensed products on the market and lack of regulations over who can inject these products, choosing the best option can be a minefield!

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most widely used fillers in the UK and have a very high safety profile. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, present in every living organism so it is very biocompatible and rarely causes any reactions. It is estimated that 30 million patients around the world have been treated with some form of hyaluronic acid. We only use FDA approved dermal Fillers and products at JR Medical.

At the end no matter which clinic or who you choose, make sure you check their track record and whether they had been having a good reputation not by celebrities, but by the public for their safety and quality of care. Then make sure a good quality product is being used for you as different products have a different base price to start with. Then make sure you have a copy of expiry date and batch number of the product which is being used for you as it is your right to know what is implemented in your body. Also make sure if something goes wrong, they would know what to do and how to handle it. Don't get pushed into having treatment on your consultation day or just for special offers. It is better to be safe than sorry!
