Considering that these awful situations could have easily be avoided with the right research and knowledge, we feel it is our responsibility to guide you to making the right decision when it comes to your aesthetic practitioner. This article will guide you through all you need to know before having dermal fillers. However, if you feel you have a burning question after reading this article please feel free to contact our expert team here at Aesthetic Medispa in Essex.


Consideration One: Your Practitioner

First and foremost, it is extremely important to consider a practitioners medical qualifications and experience. Despite aesthetic treatments being associated with outward appearance, getting dermal fillers is a medical treatment and should not be likened to making a trip to the hair salon. Therefore, you should acknowledge the training your practitioner has received and they should be more than happy to share this information with you. Dermal fillers should only be administered by a certified doctor or nurse practitioner. Here at Aesthetic Medispa, all dermal filler treatments are given by our in house doctor, who has received extensive training and accredited certification from reputable institutions.


Consideration Two: Your Consultation

Prior to your treatment, you should always be offered an initial consultation to help you get a better feel for what the procedure involves. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know your practitioner and ask any questions you have about the dermal filler treatment. You will be able to discuss what results you would like to achieve and in response your practitioner should be honest with you about what can be achieved to manage your expectations. At Aesthetic Medispa, we offer a no obligation consultation for all dermal filler treatments. Dr Gammell will address any of your concerns and discuss with you how the best possible results could be achieved.


Consideration Three: Do you feel comfortable?

During your consultation you should be made to feel at ease and should never be pushed to go ahead with the dermal filler treatment. The practitioner should make you feel comfortable and confident about the procedure. You should also take a moment to consider the environment of the clinic, whether or not it feels clean and professional. We can assure you that your experience at Aesthetic Medispa will be a positive one, all our staff are skilled to deliver the highest quality of care possible.


Consideration Four: Aftercare

Last but certainly not least, your aesthetic partitioner has a duty of care for you once you have had your dermal filler treatment. You should ask what support will be provided to you should anything go wrong. It is perfectly normal to experience some swelling and redness after having dermal fillers, however we are always happy to offer you our expert advise and treat any complications should they arise.
