Painful Price: Exposing the Dark Side of Illegal Filler Injectors and Serious Adverse Effects – KESQ

Over the past decade, injectable fillers have become increasingly popular across the country, primarily among women.

3.4 million procedures were performed in 2020, compared to 1.8 million procedures performed in 2010, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Figures only represent injectable fillers administered by licensed professionals.

“There is a tendency in the public, and some in the profession, to view laser treatments, Botox and cosmetic filler injections as cosmetic rather than medical treatments. The use of prescription drugs and devices, however, is the practice of medicine, and the same laws and regulations apply to these kinds of treatments as those driven by medical necessity,” according to the California Medical Board.

In some cases, however, the desire to alter one’s appearance through less invasive non-surgical methods has led some women astray.
