Important Safety Considerations and Information Regarding Dermal Fillers

The best way to avoid complications from a dermal filler treatment is to go to an experienced and certified cosmetic injector. Dr. Damico, who has provided cosmetic treatments in Fort Worth for over 15 years, takes the risks and complications of filler treatments seriously. In some cases, he may reserve the right to deny treatment if he believes the risk for any given procedure is too high.

Contraindications for treatment with dermal fillers:

Patients who are using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, warfarin, or certain vitamins and supplements, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site. You may wish to discuss current medications with your personal doctor before receiving treatment if you are on any of these medications.

The safety of dermal fillers for use during pregnancy or in breastfeeding people has not been established. For this reason, Dr. Damico does not provide any injectable aesthetic treatments to breastfeeding or pregnant people.

Possible side effects:

Possible risks of treatment with dermal filler include bruising, redness, swelling, itching, and pain. Any foreign material injected into the body creates a possibility of swelling or other local reactions. These symptoms are usually mild and last less than a week but can last longer.

You may be able to feel the fillers in the area where you were injected, and there is a risk that small lumps may form under your skin due to fillers collecting in one area. Dermal fillers, as with any filler material, may move from the place where it was injected.

The above list is not meant to be inclusive of all possible risks associated with hyaluronic acid fillers or dermal fillers in general, as there are both known and unknown side effects and complications associated with any hyaluronic acid fillers or dermal filler injection procedures. We make every effort to avoid complications. Anyone experiencing any adverse side effects is advised to call us immediately (24hrs day/7 days wk) at 817-738-9268.
