Are Fillers and Botox Safe?
Dermal Fillers & Botox are two of the most common forms of cosmetic treatments around, yet many people are still unsure of what they actually are, how they work and how safe and effective they can be. We put both treatments under the miscroscope to give you the lowdown.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Quite simply, dermal fillers are made from different types of materials; some are made from a substance that stimulates collagen while others actually mimic our natural body cushion called hyaluronic acid. We use dermal fillers as an injection into both the skin and deeper tissues to augment and soften facial lines and contours. Dermal fillers are versatile and work in synergy with other aesthetic applications to reduce signs aging such as loss of facial contour, fine lines, wrinkles and deep folds.

Dermal Fillers are very popular in Manchester & Cheshire as they are globally amongst both ladies and gentleman, particularly those who want to look their best and who's image is often under scrutiny (all of us, let's be honest!), whether at work or leisure.
Dr. Rose of the DermaKurve clinic says, "We've seen an increase in the number of clients who come to see us seeking fillers in recent years, no doubt due to the enhanced focus of the media on these treatments and their association with celebrities. My job is to ensure these treatments are administered safely, expertly and importantly, provide a personalized aftercare plan and advise to help people maintain a fresh appearance. We mostly value high client satisfaction and a long-term relationship based on trust rather than a quick fix.”
There are numerous brands of dermal fillers in use. At DermaKurve we use a small carefully selected range such as Juvéderm®, Radiesse and Belotero brands for our facial fillers, which have been used successfully in over 16 million treatments to date. We also use a more advanced minimally invasive technique to reduce any concerns people might have regarding dermal fillers. so that the recovery time is short and long-lasting effects make it the industry.
With great attention to detail and hygiene and the combination of an artistic approach and in the right hands (such as Dr. Rose of DermaKurve) dermal fillers will remain one of the most rewarding aesthetic treatments in our time.

A study published in the journal JAMA Dermatology concluded that fillers and Botox treatments are very safe, and that the number of adverse cases observed over a 3-month period covering 20,000 subjects was less than 1%. Even in the adverse cases, the researchers concluded that:
"Noninvasive to minimally invasive cosmetic dermatologic procedures, including energy, neurotoxin, and filler procedures, are safe when performed by experienced board-certified dermatologists. Adverse events occur in less than 1% of patients, and most of these are minor and transient."
Dr Rose added that "when you factor in that in the hands of an experienced injector the risks are even lower, we can confidently say that Dermal Fillers and Botox are safe. I reiterate: choose an experienced professional for treatment, and you will be more than satisfied with your results from these treatments."
