    Compensation for dermal filler injuries


    Compensation for dermal filler injuries

    The skin can suffer from the effects of the environment as well as ageing as time goes on. Sometimes, sufferers of skin disorders such as acne have excessive scarring and pock marks on the face and back which can lower their confidence. Scars and pock marks can be treated with various therapies including laser treatment, collagen injections or microdermabrasion. However, the type of treatment depends on the skin type and types of scars visible. Dermal fillers are more often used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by ageing and the process involves the injection of a synthetic collagen material which evens out the skin. As it is non-surgical, adverse effects should be minimal if carried out by a trained medical professional. Although it is rare to suffer from a botched treatment, it is wise to be aware of the potential risks of such treatment.

    Potential risks of dermal fillers

    Although the treatment should be carried out by a trained professional there are some potential risks that should be explained to you before you go ahead with the procedure. Side-effects may include pain, swelling or redness at the site of injection. It is rare to experience severe side-effects but if the treatment is not carried out correctly then adverse reactions may occur. These can include nerve damage and damage to the skin. If you feel that you have suffered an adverse reaction at the fault of someone else then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Where there is evidence of negligence, Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
