Dermal Fillers Dangerous?
Dermal fillers are generally not injected into the glabella due to risks of emboli and skin death. Dermal fillers to other areas for wrinkle and line management is safe when injected as they were intended.
Risks with filler injections
If vascular occlusion of an artery were to occur with filler injection, it would be essential for the practitioner to be able to recognize the signs and know how to treat appropriately. There are definitive measures that need to be taken immediately to address that which could minimize and prevent any further damage. An experienced practitioner would know how to address these potential complications. Because complications can occur with these seemingly simple procedures, it's important to be in the care of an experienced board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who knows how to treat these complications if they were to occur. The last person you want doing your injection is someone who says they wouldn't know what to do if a vascular event happened. Don't let someone blow you off by saying this is never going to happen, make sure the doctor you are seeing tells you they would know exactly what to do if this happened.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Hi Esa. There are risks and rewards with every medical procedure. As long as you are fully informed of the risks you should be able to make an educated decision about which products or treatments to use.
Surgery generally carries more risk than dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are definitely not a gimmick.
Unfortunately, many of the consumers that use websites like realself are ones that have had a bad experience so you may get a skewed opinion from the users on sites like this. Those that have had good experiences are happily returning to their doctor's office for more treatment :).

Dermal Fillers: Are They Dangerous?
Dermal fillers are generally very safe, as long as they are injected by one of the 4 core group of specialties that are trained in facial aesthetics: Facial Plastic Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, or Occuloplastic Surgeons. Lack of training and/or experience in Physicians working outside of their scope of practice is more risky, and can be associated with poor results. In addition, dermal fillers always work if used for the correct application, with appropriate patient expectations, and used in sufficient volume. If a patient expects to receive a facelift caliber result from 1 syringe of Restylane, the patient is not likely to be satisfied
