If your filler contains bovine collagen, your practitioner will carry out a skin test to check for an allergic reaction. Most Dermal Fillers do not require this stage.
The practitioner should take a medical history to make sure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment. Then you will usually be asked to read detailed information and sign a consent form which means that you have understood what the treatment may do, along with any potential side effects from the filler(s) being used.
Photographs may also be taken by the practitioner for a “before and after” comparison of the treatment.

The effects of Dermal Filler treatment should start to become visible almost immediately. It important that you follow the post-treatment advice from your practitioner.
Post-treatment advice may include:
Most people find that they can continue their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Fine lines should be visibly reduced however, slight swelling and bruising are normal at the site of injection so most people see effects after 3-5 days.
If you experience red lumps, blistering, excessive pain, skin changes or extreme swelling, contact your practitioner immediately.
Manufacturers recommend that only medically qualified practitioners should use collagen and hyaluronic acid and should ONLY be performed by a trained and qualified medical practitioner who understands facial anatomy.

Manufacturers do not recommend that beauticians or any other person outside the medical profession use these treatments due to the increased risk of medical complications.
The obvious, immediate and most common side effect is slight bleeding after the needle has been inserted.
Other risks include mild bruising, tenderness, redness and swelling that may also occur around the site of injection. These signs may take 2 - 3 days to vanish completely, especially around the lips where there is little flesh and the skin is tender.
Rarely, allergic-type reactions can occur after treatment with some fillers. These include prolonged redness, swelling, itching, hardness and bumps in the skin.
If you have a history of cold sores, or fever blisters in the treated area, filler injections may cause them to break out again. In these cases, your practitioner may recommend that you take an anti-viral medicine before treatment to help reduce the likelihood of an outbreak of cold sores.
As in any treatment to the skin, injections should be avoided in areas where the skin is swollen or where infections are present e.g. active acne. This will reduce the risk of infection at the injection site after the treatment.
If you have even the slightest allergic reaction to a particular filler, it cannot be used and you will need to use a different brand.
Dermal Fillers are not to be used on those who are pregnant.
If you have suffered from a disease of the auto-immune system, you are likely to be allergic to bovine collagen and so it cannot be used. You need to give your doctor a detailed medical history to avoid such outcomes. Conditions that are not suited to the use of bovine collagen include rheumatoid arthritis; psoriatic arthritis; systemic or discoid lupus erythematosus; or polymyositis.
If you experience any delayed reactions such as lumpy redness occurring any time after treatment, you should contact the person who treated you immediately.
