Compensation For An Injury Caused By Dermal Filler
Dermal fillers are used to fill out depressions in the skin, particularly wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, mouth and on the forehead. A very fine needle containing the dermal filler product is injected, plumping out and smoothing the area of skin, and restoring its elasticity. The cosmetic effect produced by dermal fillers can last for a few months or for a number of years, depending on the specific brand. The treatment is quick, painless, inexpensive and highly effective. The complexity of facial anatomy however means that the qualifications, skill and experience of the practitioner are of critical importance to the prospective patient.
Although Seen As Safe Dermal Fillers Can Be Dangerous
Though dermal filler injections are considered to be a relatively safe beauty treatment, there are a wide variety products on the market containing different ingredients, and many of these can have adverse side effects which other products do not. Novabel dermal filler for example was released in 2010, and subsequently withdrawn after a few months, due to widespread reports of it triggering adverse reactions among patients. A large number of people have subsequently succeeded in claiming compensation from the manufacturer, Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH.

Can I Claim Compensation For An Allergic Reaction To Dermal Filler?
It depends on your symptoms. Allergic reactions to dermal filler products are far from rare, and for this reason, salons and clinics are expected to carry out skin patch tests on new clients to identify pre-existing allergies and assess an individual’s skin sensitivity. A thorough medical consultation should also establish any contraindications, such as a tendency to keloid scarring, asthma or autoimmune disease, which make the treatment unsuitable and inadvisable. Where a person experiences an allergic reaction to dermal filler and / or is temporarily disfigured by the procedure, it will often be possible to sue to clinic for negligence if they failed to carry out these essential checks.

Are Lumps On My Face After A Dermal Filler Treatment Normal?
Poor aesthetic results from a dermal filler treatment may be due to a cosmetic clinician failing to inject the filler deep enough, leading to an uneven appearance, and sometimes a visible blue line appearing under the skin. If the clinician injects too much dermal filler, or injects it into the wrong area, numbness and temporary facial paralysis (palsy) may result. Other possible side effects include nodules (lumps) forming under the skin, discolouration and even necrosis, where the lack of blood supply to the treated area causes skin to die. Bacterial and viral infections may also be contracted if hygiene standards at a clinic are poor.
