Who is Qualified to do Fillers vs. who is Allowed to do them
It is essential to your health and safety that you research your cosmetic surgeon’s history and qualifications. Many unlicensed practitioners perform sub-standard procedures in non-clinical settings using fillers that can result in illness, disfigurement and sometimes even death. Some of the substances used in place of tested and approved products are:
- Baby oil
- Cooking oil
- Products used in other countries but not approved by our FDA
Some products used by unqualified individuals may be of unknown origin or even illegal. When electing to have any type of procedure done involving the use of fillers, be sure to do your homework and research the background of anyone you are considering for your cosmetic procedure.
