How Safe is Dermal Filler?

How Safe is Dermal Filler?

Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular for their ability to enhance facial features and reduce the signs of aging without invasive surgery. However, the question of how safe is dermal filler often arises, and it’s crucial to address this concern.

Safety from Experienced Dermal Filler Practitioner

First and foremost, when administered by a qualified and experienced aesthetics professional, dermal fillers are generally considered safe. These professionals understand facial anatomy, injection techniques, and product selection, minimizing the risk of complications.


The primary component of most dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, which helps retain moisture and add volume to the skin. As a result, allergic reactions are rare, making hyaluronic acid fillers well-tolerated by most individuals.


Nevertheless, many aesthetics procedures carry some level of risk. Potential side effects of dermal fillers may include bruising, swelling, redness, or lumps at the injection site. These effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days.

To ensure your safety, it is vital to choose a reputable, experienced practitioner, who follows proper sterilization and hygiene protocols. Avoid seeking dermal filler treatments at non-medical settings or from unqualified practitioners.

Before getting dermal fillers, discuss your medical history and any allergies you may have with your practitioner. This information will help them determine the most suitable filler for your needs and minimize the risk of adverse reactions.

In conclusion, while dermal fillers are generally safe, the key to a positive experience lies in seeking treatment from a qualified professional and having open communication about your concerns and expectations. By doing so, you can confidently enjoy the benefits of dermal fillers while prioritizing your safety and well-being.

Julie was very welcoming and both her and her colleague were lovely. Julie went through all my options with me, and didn't rush me at all. I felt very comfortable and during the procedure she asked me if I was doing OK. I can highly recommend!!

It was myself not Paul who had the treatment with Julie. Having never had any previous treatments I was excited but also a little nervous, however, Julie made me feel at ease.. She took a medical history and explained the benefits and risks allowing me to make a fully informed descision. I am delighted with the results which look very natural and have been a great boost to my confidence. I would certainly have further treatments in the future.

Cannot recommend Julie highly enough and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. My procedure was fully explained with no rush and I was given very realistic expectations. I was nervous at first when I went for my consultation but was made to feel very welcome and not put under any pressure at all regarding going ahead with treatments. Julie is a friendly and professional person who makes you feel at ease during treatments with her knowledge and approachable warm nature – I’m so glad I didn’t go anywhere else! Thank you 😊

Would thoroughly recommend Julie Edwards for any treatments. I had several skin tags removed. Julie explained the procedure thoroughly from initial consultation, treatment and the after care. She followed up by email with details on the after care and a follow upappointment. Nothing was too much trouble. Julie was recommended to me by a friend and I am so pleased I chose to have my treatment with her.

I went to Aesthetics Julie Edwards recently to discuss treatment options for my particular facial concerns. My initial consultation took around 30 mins during which time she advised me of the best treatment for me, the pros and cons, realistic expectations, exactly how the procedure is carried out and after care required to obtain the best results. Also medical history was taken. All I all I felt in safe hands and was very impressed with both her knowledge on the subject and standard of hygiene in the salon.I went ahead with the procedure a week later. Again everything was explained to me and she ensured I felt totally at ease. Before and after photos were taken and I am very happy with the results. I was provided with after care instructions which I feel is very important in order to get the optimal results.I am very glad I went to Aesthetics Julie Edwards. l have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone wishing to undertake a facial procedure.
