The patient from Thanh Hoa went to see a feng shui master, was “said” to have a bad nose, to dissipate fortune. Trusting the fortune teller, she went to stretch her nose at a spa. After a month of intervention, she criticized the tip of the nose as still low, not reaching the desired level, so injecting 1ml of filler into the tip of the nose and the bridge of the nose.
A day later, the injection area appeared red and swollen. The spa staff injected the solution but it didn’t work. The patient came to the Central Dermatology Hospital when the redness and swelling of the entire nose was still heavy.
Doctors appoint patients to use anti-inflammatory active ingredients, antibiotics to reduce the risk of necrosis, continue injecting HA solution.
“Many patients come to the hospital to ask for help after injecting fillers, injecting substances advertised as collagen because they want to change feng shui and destiny” – MSc Nguyen Quang Minh, Deputy Head of the Department of Public Research and Application stem cell technology, said.
The positions that many people often intervene to change feng shui such as nose, chin, ears, hollow cheeks, concave between the eyebrows, temples …
“Most people want to emphasize their faces to change their fate and fortune. But it is these positions that often leave complications after filler injections,” said BSCK2 Nguyen Quang Minh.
The reason is because these positions when injecting fillers have a high risk of invading blood vessels and passing nerves if the injector does not have good practice skills and understanding of structural anatomy.
Filler injection is a procedure that sounds simple but has many complications and risks. Areas such as the nose, if filler is injected by an untrained, knowledgeable person or “fake” filler, the risk of entering the central retinal artery, entering the inside of the eye causes more serious complications such as gangrene. , blindness may occur.
A fact pointed out by dermatologists and cosmetologists is that after the media constantly warned about complications after injecting fillers at unreliable facilities, many places have “avoided” by not injecting fillers. using the word “filler” or “filler” but promising, advertising to customers by using “collagen active ingredients”, “collagen-promoting active ingredients”…
According to the analysis of Dr. Quang Minh, the nature of using a large amount of collagen to fill the entire area is very difficult. The reason is because collagen active ingredients when put into the body can cause allergies, the risk of creating an immune response of the body.
So most of the active ingredients put into the body have the role of stimulating collagen growth, in essence, they are involved in the filling process.
Beauty facilities have advertised this as an anti-aging, collagen, or multi-layer regenerator, with the promise of filling this area without using fillers to attract customers and create peace of mind.
In fact, after injecting these substances that are advertised as collagen, patients show signs of swelling and hydration (like injecting fillers). Going to the hospital to handle complications, after being diagnosed by an ultrasound doctor and using a dissolving agent, it can be seen that the substance injected by the spa is a filler, not collagen.
