Are Dermal Fillers Safe During Pregnancy?

Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne are constantly asked about our dermal fillers. Questions such as “what are dermal fillers?” and “are dermal fillers safe during pregnancy?”

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment that can provide a more youthful aesthetic to certain areas of the body. The Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne’s team provide these to a range of patients daily and can help you to find which option works best for your desired changes.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe During Pregnancy?

This is a very common question. There are no scientific studies that state the dermal filler procedure is at all harmful to a baby, just as there are no case reports of any complications or adverse reactions to the application of dermal fillers while pregnant.

Many women who regularly receive dermal filler treatments have done so while not knowing they are pregnant in the early stages. Dermal fillers are very safe; however, it is important to note that most doctors advise a side of caution that means refraining from these procedures during pregnancy, purely for precaution. We even avoid using Dermal fillers or anti wrinkle injection if the patient has slightest doubt of being pregnant.

It is your decision as to whether or not the lack of data on this subject creates a risk you are unwilling to take while pregnant. Dermal fillers are popular due to their proven safety record; however, the primary decision will always be up to you, the patient.

Why Do So Many People Choose Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are so popular as they provide an efficient application process with minimal downtime as they are a non-invasive treatment option. They are a versatile product with differing options that will last for varying amounts of time.

While dermal fillers are not a permanent solution, there are some that will last for a few months, and others can be effective for one to two years. Repeated treatments, however, are required to maintain the aesthetic provided by the product.

Understanding The Right Dermal Filler Option for You

As there are many different dermal filler options that offer a range of results. Your free consultation provided by the team at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne will be crucial to determining which is best for you.

The gel that makes up the dermal fillers differs in thickness, viscosity, and longevity with fine fillers offering a shorter lasting time frame.

It is possible to blend dermal fillers with a local anaesthetic to reduce the already mild amount of pain during the application procedure for those who have a low pain threshold. The blend of the anaesthetic works to numb the skin, creating a more comfortable process for the patient.
