Joel Schlessinger MD warns against the use of unapproved fillers

As injectable wrinkle fillers gain popularity, some patients are searching for an inexpensive alternative to office visits. In this blog, Joel Schlessinger MD explains how seeking treatment from anyone other than a professional could have serious side effects.

It’s important to see a board-certified cosmetic surgeon for fillers and other injectables, Joel Schlessinger MD says.

Always do your research when selecting a cosmetic surgeon. It’s important to choose someone who is board certified and has experience with fillers. If spas and offices are offering fillers at deep discounts, this should be seen as a red flag. These fillers are generally unapproved by the Food and Drug Administration or illegally obtained over the Internet.

Unapproved fillers can cause serious damage, including infection, severe allergic reactions, disfigurement and even blindness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, unsafe injections are a “growing problem.” Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons are seeing an increasing number of patients with botched fillers who are looking for a way to reverse the damage.

Choose a cosmetic surgeon like Joel Schlessinger MD, who puts your safety first.
