The dangers of nose fillers

In the last couple of years, people have become more aware of lip fillers that have gone bad. Fillers can be a safe, minimally invasive treatment to add facial volume and enhance your natural beauty. However, they are not without risk. For example, the potential dangers of nose fillers are necrosis (tissue death), permanent scarring, and damage to vision including blindness. You should always look for a highly trained, experienced doctor to get the safe results you are looking for.

How can a nose filler go bad?

To administer injectables and fillers is precision work. It must be done in a clinical environment and with the highest amount of training and experience. When the filler is not administered at the right depth it may be injected into a blood vessel or a muscle, risking blindness and necrosis. The correct knowledge about human anatomy is therefore essential for proper injection and limited risks. This is something that a skilled cosmetic surgeon is trained in, but a beautician in a London beauty salon may not know. Adequate clinician training in the use of fillers is essential for the prevention of adverse events.
