Dermal fillers, commonly known as cosmetic fillers are injected in soft tissue of the skin to help filling in facial wrinkles, and also achieving smoother skin appeal. They can be used for many aesthetic reconstructions, such as filling in fine lines and superficial wrinkles, medium to deep folds, smoothing out creased areas, restoring the volume loss in the cheek area or plumping thin lips. Nowadays cosmetic technicians use fillers constantly despite not knowing the rules for perfect facial aesthetics and the lack of education for facial anatomy such as anatomy of muscles and nerves. Their only attendance is at courses for certificates that are untrustworthy and the effects of this kind of education causes damage to the patients. When placing dermal fillers by the cosmetic technician, frequent adverse effects such as tissue necrosis, artificial appearance or a possibility of many infections may occur. Doctors, dentists and oral surgeons learn how to safely administer dermal injections as part of their medical training. Medical professionals are taught how to use needles and cannulas safely, and they are also taught how to deal with problems that may arise from allergic reactions, infection, or an error by the injector. Would you feel completely comfortable having a tooth extracted by a beauty therapist who learned that one procedure and observed dentists performing it, but had no other medical training? Or would you prefer a qualified dentist to do it?
