Cutting corners when it comes to health is never a good bargain — there’s a reason why these at-home fillers are illegal.

A January article on Harvard Health Publishing reports on an increase of illegal do-it-yourself injectable fillers being sold online. The article warns against untrained individuals injecting themselves because significant and even life-threatening complications can arise from improper use. West Los Angeles-based health and beauty center West Empire Plastic Surgery says that the huge risks that come with DIY fillers and injectables can easily be avoided while still enjoying the benefits of these products when used appropriately by visiting medical spas and other providers supervised by, at a minimum, reputable physicians or, better yet, board-certified plastic surgeons.

West Empire Plastic Surgery says that, while everyone likes saving money, cutting corners when it comes to health is never a good bargain — there’s a reason why these at-home fillers are illegal. The medical group says that serious issues such as infections, stroke, and even death can occur due to botched injections. West Empire Plastic Surgery adds that cosmetic procedures require advanced skills and experience to know where to place injections with results that appear natural and flattering. For those performing these treatments at home or through a questionable medical professional, the final results are unlikely to be what they had in mind.

The medical group says that when cut-rate methods are chosen over premium treatments from certified experts, patients may end up spending vastly more to fix poor results than if they had simply gone to a reputable provider in the first place. More important, patients who do that are putting their priceless health at risk, and not every problem can be fully resolved.

The West Los Angeles-based health and beauty center says that the logic applies not only to cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedures but even more to actual plastic surgeries such as facelifts, which have more long-lasting outcomes. The best and only way to get high-quality results safely is to go to a board-certified physician who is qualified to perform these procedures. Like West Empire Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Mort Rivzi and Dr. Sepideh Saber, the center notes, plastic surgeons with board certification have gone through a rigorous process ensuring that they have obtained all the necessary skills and knowledge needed to perform procedures at the highest aesthetic and safety standards. The result is greater safety, more effective procedures, and more peace of mind for beauty center clients.
