The FDA has recently recommended that Black Box labeling on dermal fillers be updated to include risks associated with improper injection. Following complaints made by some patients who had experienced complications following accidental injection into blood vessels, the FDA told the makers of facial fillers that warnings need to be improved to ensure patients fully understand their risks.

Is nonsurgical facial rejuvenation dangerous? It can be, especially when performed by an inexperienced or underqualified provider. This, among many other reasons, is why you should only work with a board-certified plastic surgeon, even when undergoing nonsurgical treatments.

Los Angeles facial plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member in several state and national organizations devoted to patient education and safety. While there is no way to absolutely guarantee against complications with a procedure, working with an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon greatly reduces your risks and helps ensure the most pleasing results.
