At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, I often get asked, “Are fillers safe?”. The most common scenario presented by concerned clients: I have such sensitive skin and if anything can go wrong it will happen to me. I’ve got good news! Recent studies have shown very little risk or side effects. Check out studies in the JAMA Journal.
Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, at least the ones I prefer using at Emerge Medical & Well Spa. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance created by our own body. It’s what keeps our skin hydrated among other wonderful benefits. This is why there are little to no allergic reactions.
By the age of 40, we have lost nearly 50% of our skin’s elasticity compared to our early 20s! Sad, I know – but true. What we do need to worry about is if you are afraid of bruising. Ladies and gentlemen, if you stick a needle in the skin for any reason, you risk the chance of getting a bruise and possible inflammation at the site. Oh, and please let us know if you are allergic to lidocaine before beginning a procedure at Emerge Medical & Well Spa. The liquid gold is swimming in it! We can use without it. Lastly, make sure your injector is trained and well-versed in possible complications. Having the proper antidote if injected into a vessel will ensure all goes well.
