Are cheap dermal fillers’ worth the risk?
As dermal filler treatments increase in popularity, so does the number of people looking to get a cheap deal. We’ve explored the dangers in this post.
The continuing rise in the demand for non-surgical cosmetic procedures has led to an increase in the number of people administering these types of treatments at incredibly low prices. Whilst this might sound like good news for the client, unfortunately, it’s far from it.
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are costly for very good reasons. The expense involved in using quality products, providing excellent service and meeting the necessary safety requirements is significant, so in order to meet these costs, quality practitioners have to set their prices accordingly.
In order to help educate the public about what exactly they are getting for their money when they invest in a quality non-surgical procedure, we’ve put together a brief guide to what’s goes into bringing you a treatment you can trust.
The risks involved with cheap dermal fillers:
In order to offer ‘cheap fillers’ shoddy practitioners are unlikely to invest in any of the above, as when offering cheap treatments, the cost of provision has to be minimal in order to make a profit.
Cheap (and fake) dermal fillers are freely available online, often from China where there are no manufacturing standards. Dermal fillers can cause serious harm and it is most important only those from licensed manufacturers and suppliers are used.
Of course, in any business, profit is important. The income provided by those seeking treatment has to sustain the service and also be invested in improving standards and quality. However, we strongly believe that profit should never come before safety.
Practitioners who don’t invest in research, training, the environment they work in, care standards and protection should things go wrong are an accident waiting to happen. There are risks involved in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, and without the necessary safeguards in place, side effects and complications are more likely to occur.

Quality non-surgical cosmetic treatments are expensive, and as such, patients receiving them have the right to expect a quality service in an appropriate environment. Dermal filler treatments should never be administered at a party, in a hotel room, at a shop or at home.
