The Side Effects of Injectable Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are also known as soft tissue fillers, injectable implants, or wrinkle fillers are medical device implants approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in helping to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance. They are usually used in the face, cheeks, and lips. The majority of the injectable fillers have a temporary effect because they contain ingredients that are absorbed by the body over time. Some of the most common dermal filler risks are: bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching, rash, and difficulty performing activities. The less common complications include raised bumps in or under the skin that may need to be surgically removed, infection, open or draining wounds, a sore at the injection site, allergic reactions, and necrosis (tissue death). Unfortunately, the less common side effects mentioned above are the most common issues faced by patients with recessed scars.


Costs vary from $467 to $1,682 according to the type used and are not covered by insurance. So while fillers can be a good temporary solution for certain types of scars, they are expensive, somewhat risky and temporary. If you prefer a less expensive daily solution, Dermaflage when applied correctly can produce similar or better results than the best outcomes with injectable fillers. It is the first makeup that looks like real skin and a concealer made of silicone that fills in wrinkles and recessed scars. This is great news for the needle phobic! You also avoid the risk of possible procedures of surgeries to undo what was done with the injectable fillers. Dermaflage blends perfectly with your skin and will fill in just like facial injectable implants, only it is topical. Dermaflage has a 30 day return policy and will match to your skin tone colour, if the colour is off you can easily return and trade in for a colour that better fits you. The starter kits are only $60, with anywhere from 30-200 uses depending on the size of the imperfection. So, the choice is yours, will you choose an expensive and painful injection with multiple unpleasant side effects or will you try Dermaflage and let it work its magic?
