Tips for Filler Injections

Make sure you are being treated by a licensed medical professional who uses FDA-approved filler injections that are pre-filled. You have every right to request to look at the labels of your filler products to ensure you know exactly what you are getting.

Never use any filler injection products on yourself. Always seek a licensed professional to help, and never use filler on large body parts.

Warnings for Filler Injections

The FDA has several warnings for fillers, and Fillers have not been approved for use in the buttocks, breasts, or between muscles. They warn that attempting to use fillers for large areas can cause serious harm to the body and may even be fatal in some instances.

Further, the FDA has not approved needle-free fillers. You may have seen advertisements for fillers than are “needle-free” hyaluronic acid fillers. The FDA does not approve these because they can cause serious injury to the skin, lips, and eyes.
