Discount Fillers? Here’s Why You Should Always Do Your Research.

Discount Fillers? Here's Why You Should Always Do Your Research.

Fillers are wonderful tools for helping you refresh your facial features. From replenishing volume loss and facial contouring to rewinding the signs of aging, dermal fillers are a great way to give you added confidence in the presence that you put out into the world.

As professionals in the industry, we understand that dermal fillers are not an inexpensive purchase – and if you are a thrifty individual, you may scour the internet seeking coupons and discounts to cut costs.

Today, we want to tell you why it is crucial to do your research beforehand.

The Risks of Cheap Injections

There are many, many reasons why a cheap injection is a bad injection, but here are three that should immediately change your outlook.

1. Inexpensive specialists may offer low-quality service.

If the product you are receiving is cheap, your service likely will be as well. This can range in severity from the practices of your physician to the cleanliness of the setting you are receiving your filler in.

Your injector should be a qualified specialist. They will be knowledgeable about the product and where it comes from. Their bedside manner should be kind and welcoming, and the procedure setting should be sterile and trustworthy.

Unfortunately, this is often not the case when seeking inexpensive treatment. There are plenty of horror stories online, from “specialists” who have split injections between two separate appointments (causing needle contamination) to injecting too much or too little and botching results.

When you pay the higher costs for your injection, you are also paying for quality service. Don’t cut costs for risky service.

2. Cheap fillers can be fake fillers.

One of the reasons that companies can offer inexpensive fillers is because of the ingredients within the syringe.

This could be imitation injections without FDA approval, diluted filler, or expired product. In some cases, there may be no botulinum toxin in the injection at all.

You can always ask your provider to show you the product before unpackaging it. This ensures that your injection is safe, sealed, and untampered with.

Checking your injection beforehand can guarantee a sterile procedure, but if your source is not trustworthy, you have no way of knowing exactly what is being injected.

3. Your injections may be imported.

Another way that companies can cut the cost of your injection is to import the filler from other countries. The problem with this method of discounting costs is that the product you are injected into your skin does not follow United States FDA requirements.

These products are often mass-produced and under-regulated, and there is often no way to certify the license or medical grade of the filler.

Now, imagine putting that into your lips or undereye area. Just don’t do it.

If you want to avoid infection or the possibility of having to undo the damage of a counterfeit injection, budget for the real deal!

The Bottom Line

Cheap fillers are not always trustworthy. They may be tempting, but saving money on a faulty injection won’t save you money on fixing a problem with your filler later on.

If you are looking to save on fillers, start by finding a clinic or specialist that you can trust. Read reviews and talk to the doctors. If the establishment is trustworthy, you know that you will find great service and guaranteed results.

In some circumstances, these establishments will offer discounts or packages that either helps you to save on your services or get more bang for your buck. This is fine! Just make sure to do the legwork beforehand to ensure that the setting, specialist, and products being used are safe and satisfactory.
