Injectable silicone is a very controversial filler that is not only illegal but very dangerous. Despite marketing that would have you believe otherwise, silicone is not FDA-approved for injection into the buttocks, breasts, or other body parts for the purpose of enhancing size or augmenting appearance.
As injectable silicone is approved for specific use inside the eye, some doctors may lead patients to believe they would be receiving FDA-approved treatment, despite that not being the case. Even though doctors may use medical devices in off-label circumstances, such as Botox for thinning hair, not every instance may be safe for the patient.
Even though silicone is used in other cosmetic treatments such as breast implants, the structure of implants and an injectable filler are different. Injectable silicone can migrate within the body, leading not only to possible disfigurement and pain, but also medical danger that could lead to death. It is very important to be aware that silicone injectables for cosmetic use are not an approved procedure. A licensed medical practitioner will be able to recommend safe cosmetic filler brands.
When receiving any kind of dermal injectable there are precautions that should be observed. If someone is offering injectables for body enhancement, ask questions and do your research to ensure you are observing the following rules of receiving injectable treatments:
Though silicone injectables should never be used, there are other cosmetic fillers available that have been proven to be safe. They are able to provide effective cosmetic results including correction of age-related skin imperfections and even augmentation to some areas of the face and body.
There are many dermal fillers that are approved by regulatory agents for use in cosmetic treatments. Many popular dermal injectables are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is broken down by the body over time to give temporary volumizing, moisturizing, and rejuvenating results. Hyaluronic acid fillers are usually approved for injection into the face, neck, decolletage, and hands. Another type of dermal filler involves the ingredient poly-L-lactic acid, which helps stimulate the growth of collagen. There are also some fillers that are safe to inject into the buttocks area. Your medical practitioner will advise you of which fillers are best for you.
Botox injections are different from dermal fillers as they function in a different manner, paralyzing the underlying muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to appear instead of adding volume. Nevertheless, Botox is effective for improving the appearance of many lines and wrinkles—particularly those in the upper half of the face, and any other wrinkles that are categorized as dynamic wrinkles.
Receiving any kind of cosmetic injectable has risks associated with it, and that’s why it’s very important to ensure you are always being treated by a licensed and experienced medical professional who is using authentic products. If you were looking into silicone injectables in order to enhance and sculpt the body, there are safe alternatives available.
Dermal fillers can perform a variety of cosmetic treatments, and surgical butt-lifts or breast augmentations are popular and approved procedures. Fillers such as HYAcorp RHA 1 and RHA2 are trusted fillers used to sculpt and enhance specific areas of the body. As well, Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, Filorga, and many other brands are trusted and widely used by doctors around the world. Always keep in mind that many cosmetic procedures are also medical procedures, and the proper precaution should be observed before receiving these kinds of procedures.If you want to find out about more the uses of dermal fillers, sign up for our newsletter.
