Fake neon

In the field of medical aesthetics and facial injections, it's more important than ever for patients to be aware of the risks associated with fake injectors. These are non-physicians who can cause serious complications such as permanent disfigurement, infection and paralysis, which could cost a patient much more than money in both short- and long-term health consequences. So it's essential that patients understand what makes a physician licensed and certified to perform cosmetic facial injections so they can make informed decisions when seeking non-surgical procedures.
By taking proactive steps to acquire the knowledge you need, you can avoid making costly mistakes that are not easily reversible.

Understand what a filler injection is and educate yourself.

It's important to understand what a filler injection is and to learn more about this medical technique. A filler injection is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting substances such as hyaluronic acid or autologous fat to restore the volume and appearance of targeted areas of the face. This technique is often used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, and to add volume to lips, cheeks and even deep facial structures. However, it is imperative to fully understand the risks and benefits before undergoing a filler injection.

Find out about the qualifications and experience of the doctor who will be injecting you.

It's important to ask questions about your doctor's experience and qualifications to ensure you receive quality care. We remind you that in France, only doctors are authorized to perform cosmetic injections.
Unlike in the UK, a nurse cannot perform a procedure under the supervision of a doctor. So the first step is to check the doctor's diploma and registration with the ordre des médecins: https: //www.conseil-national.medecin.fr/annuaire/

Then you can find out how long they've been practicing, whether they have any specializations, licenses or certifications relevant to your specific treatment. You can also ask for references from previous patients or online testimonials. Remember, you have the right to find a practitioner who meets your needs and expectations. Ask questions and make sure you feel comfortable before entrusting someone with your health.

Find out about the types of products used by the injecting physician and verify them with a reliable source.

It's crucial to be fully informed about the types of products used by the injector before proceeding with an injection. The safety and efficacy of the treatment depend largely on the products used. That's why it's important to turn to a reliable source to check the composition and quality of the products used. In this way, you can be sure that the treatment will be carried out professionally and without risk to your health. Don't leave anything to chance, and take the time to inform yourself before embarking on an injection. At Plasticiens Paris, we only use dermal fillers that have been validated by France'sAgence Nationale des Produits de Santé (ANSM), the only agency in France authorized to validate injectable medical devices, and by the American FDA, which requires long-term clinical trials: https: //www.fda.gov/medical-devices/products-and-medical-procedures/aesthetic-cosmetic-devices.

We chose Abbvie's Juvederm range and Galderma's Restylane.

Check whether the injecting physician is certified and insured, to avoid any potential risk and to be insured yourself in the event of a problem.

It is crucial to check and confirm that the injecting physician you are going to consult is licensed and insured before carrying out the procedure. Filler injections are simple and reliable procedures, but they are contraindicated in certain patients (notably those suffering from severe autoimmune diseases). What's more, certain injections, such as botulinum toxin or Botox, are currently reserved in France for certain medical specialties, including dermatologists and plastic surgeons. It is therefore important to check that the doctor's insurance covers the procedure he or she is about to perform, as there are rare but serious complications associated with filler injections. Vision loss, skin necrosis and stroke have been described. The injecting physician must be able to react urgently in the event of a complication, and must have antidotes such as hyaluronidase at his disposal.

Opt for consultations before making an appointment for a medical-aesthetic treatment

It's crucial to consider all these risks before deciding to undergo medical aesthetic treatment. It may be helpful to schedule an information consultation so that the doctor can propose a treatment plan.
These consultations provide an opportunity to discuss your concerns and wishes with a qualified healthcare professional. During the consultation, you can ask any questions you may have about the treatment, to make sure you understand what's involved. The doctor will be able to examine you and decide whether the treatment is safe and appropriate for your body. Consultations enable you to make an informed decision and have realistic expectations. They are essential to ensure that the treatment you choose matches your needs and aesthetic goals. At Cabinet Plasticiens Paris, we offer this type of consultation at a cost of 100 euros. The price will then be deducted from the price of the injection procedure, if you choose to undergo it.

Make sure that the injecting physician complies with all safety standards, including asepsis (infection control), during your appointment.

When you visit your doctor to receive an injection, it's important to make sure that the doctor follows all the necessary safety standards to avoid the spread of infection. Health professionals take this very seriously, ensuring that the environment is perfectly clean. Many refer to specific protocols such as wearing gloves, regularly cleaning surfaces and using single-use needles. So, if you're worried about the safety of your injection, don't hesitate to ask questions and seek clarification to put your mind at rest.
At Plasticiens Paris, patient health is our top priority, and we do everything in our power to prevent the spread of infection.
