Safe filler injections: why your clinician’s anatomy knowledge matters

When having dermal filler injections it’s important that your clinician has a strong understanding of facial anatomy.

This not only impacts your results, but also helps to reduce the risk of complications, such as vascular occlusion.

A clinician’s experience, ongoing professional development and training are all integral to building and refining this knowledge base.

Injectors who are safety conscious take time to perform a thorough examination of the area before injecting – as our anatomy is not always a carbon copy of what we learn in text books!

They also choose products and delivery techniques that minimise the various risk factors inherent to different areas of the face. Sometimes this means using a cannula instead of a needle, injecting from a specific angle or ensuring time between dental work, illness or infections before placing filler in the face.

All treatments carry risks that cannot be totally eliminated; but they can certainly be reduced. Visit our dermal fillers page for more information.

In this video, one of our injectors shares an example of why we take great care when assessing, planning and performing our filler treatments.
