Can You Really Go Blind from A Radiesse Injection?

A new study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery

recently had pointed out quite problematic side effects possible

when you get dermal fillers, like the Radiesse injection. The study

involved a look into procedures done from 2014 to 2016 involving

different kinds of dermal fillers, not only Radiesse and here’s what

they found out:

The side effects are very minimal.

They have concluded that the fillers themselves, are safe, and pose

only a few adverse effects – most of them not permanent. Dermal

fillers have been used for several years now for different reasons.

Wrinkle reduction. Lip filler. Cheek filler. Nasal shaping. These are

but a few of the many things that dermal fillers can do.

of all the side effects swelling is the most

Of all the side effects, swelling is the most common.

The most common side effects noted in the study were swelling and

infection, though post treatment pain and lumps were also found.

To add, most of these adverse effects were more commonly

experienced by those who had cheek injections (43%), and lip

injections (30%).

One of the scariest side effects though, was blindness.

Getting blind from simply getting a dermal filler is a very rare

occurrence. How rare? Only .0001% who had Radiesse injection

suffered from vision loss. Only 50 patients reported blindness due to

cosmetic fillers all over the world.

This adverse effect is slowly gaining attention though with folks

worried for their eyes, which leaves us asking, what causes the

blindness anyway?

Most of the cases happened after getting a nasal injection. The

reason is because the blood vessels around the eye and nose area

are very sensitive and are directly connected with the blood vessels

in the retina.

How do you prevent this side effect from happening?

Believe it or not, the main villain in this story is not blindness. The

main culprits are those who provide dermal filler injections without

the needed training and certification. As it turns out, all one needs is

an MD in order to buy dermal fillers. However, not all doctors,

dermatologists, and cosmetic specialists had undergone the special

training needed in order to perform dermal filler injections safely. In

fact in instagram alone only less than

fact, in Instagram alone, only less than 20% of plastic-surgery related

posts come from board-certified practitioners.

This is indeed a very problematic situation since the lives of people

are at stake. Blindness is not the only risk you are exposed to when

getting this treatment from a non-board-certified practitioner. Some

of the more serious side effects include deformity and even death.

But this is not the greatest risk.

Despite how it may sound, this is still not the biggest risk that the

world of dermatology is facing when it comes to dealing with dermal

fillers. So what is the biggest risk, you ask? The proliferation of do-it-

yourself filler kits which are slowly gaining some popularity in other

countries such as United Kingdom and Canada. Once the United

States have caught on with the swelling number of home kit users,

doctors also expect an increased number of people experiencing the

nasty side effects we have discussed earlier.

Dermal filler injections should only be done by board-certified

professionals who have undergone special training in order to

perform this procedure. Getting treatment otherwise will put one at

great health risk. In fact, one should keep this in mind when getting

any cosmetic treatment done. Only get procedures done by those

who have proper training and ample experience. By remembering

this, you are lowering the detrimental risks brought about by

malpractice. Stay beautiful!
