Beware! Cheap Facial Fillers Can Disfigure Your Face
Many people turn to facial fillers as a way to bring some youth back to their appearance. Whenever you see models, celebrities, or just women in general who are over the age of 45 with smooth, youthful skin, there is a good chance they have had facial fillers injected. With the popularity of facial fillers growing exponentially, many people have begun looking for cheaper alternatives to facial fillers.
But beware: cheap facial fillers are both painful and dangerous, and are not worth the risk. At AMAE Med Spa, Dr. Ali provides Troy, MI area patients with facial fillers that, while affordable, are also safe, legitimate, expertly injected and top-of-the-line.
Cheap Facial Fillers Can Be Fake & Fatal
Cheap facial fillers are frequently created in non-sterile, unhygienic conditions. Cheap facial fillers also frequently contain silicone and other harmful chemicals, which the body cannot naturally absorb. As there are thousands of nerve fibres, hundreds of blood vessels, and dozens of muscles in the human face, a single misplaced needed can result in chronic nerve damage, unsightly scarring, infection, blindness, and even death.
Complications from Cheap Facial Fillers
One such case of the dangers of cheap facial fillers involved a beautician performing a facial filler procedure in under five minutes that left the patient in unbearable pain. Upon being examined by a plastic surgeon, it was determined that they had been injected with a counterfeit filler, which damaged the skin around their nose and clogging their blood vessels. The cheap facial filler caused the patient to have to have dead tissue removed from their nose, which left a gaping hole in their nasal cartilage that could only be repaired through cartilage grafts.
It has also been reported by the Los Angeles Times that a woman died after being injected with a cheap facial filler she was told was botox, but was in fact cooking oil. Another example of the dangers of cheap facial fillers occurred in Miami when a group of people attempting to get botox were paralyzed after being injected with the deadly botulinum toxin, a chemical intended only for research.
