Information and Consent for Dermal Filler Injections Using Hyaluronic Acid

 

Important Background to the Consent Process

 

Your clinician wishes to help you make an informed decision about your treatment options and any relevant alternative options. You may at any time decline treatment even after giving your consent.

 

Whilst  your  clinician will make every effort to understand what significance you would attach to any particular risk it is important to us that you feel comfortable enough to question the clinician on any point of concern during this process. Please feel you have as much time as you wish to reflect on the information given before agreeing to proceed with the treatment.

 

Purpose of Treatment

 

You have presented with concerns which have formed the basis of a clinical discussion and examination. The purpose of the proposed treatment is to address your concerns either individually or in combination with other modalities of treatment.

 

Outcomes

 

Your clinician will endeavor in good faith to employ the principles of best practice in delivering your treatment. Each patient is individual and response to treatment will vary from patient to patient and treatment to treatment. As such it is difficult to guarantee outcomes will always meet your expectations.

 

Background Information

 

These injectable products are a sterile, pyrogen-free physiological solution of hyaluronic acid of non- animal origin. The products have been extensively tested and found suitable and safe as an injectable implant intended for injection to correct facial and body structural defects such as asymmetry, contour deformities and volume loss in the lips, cheeks, chin and lower face. The range is also suitable for enhancement, fine line treatment. Each product has a different consistency, and your clinician will advise on the appropriate product to be used to give the desired results.

 

In addition to hyaluronic acid, some syringes contain a small amount of lidocaine hydrochloride and a phosphate buffer. It is important to advise your clinician if you are allergic either to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine.

 

Commonly Experienced Adverse Events

 

Redness Swelling

Paresthesia (nerve problems, loss of sensation, loss of motor function) Itching

Important Considerations

 

Every care is taken to deliver the products in a manner which will minimize risk, however you should be aware of the risks, as one may exist upon which you place particular significance.

Patients are advised to take in to account all these potential risks before consenting to treatment. Please make your clinician fully aware of your expectations prior to giving consent.

 

Safety Profile

 

The incidence of allergic reaction has been found to be low and as the products are non-animal based, usually no test patching is required. Should your clinician have concerns about your history of allergies it may be prudent to test a small amount of product before commencing treatment.

 

Contraindications and Relative Contraindications to Treatment

 

Hypersensitivity to lidocaine, other amide-type local anesthetics, or gram-positive bacterial proteins untreated epilepsy

Use with extreme caution in patients who tend to develop hypertrophic scarring If you are, Pregnant or breastfeeding

Porphyria

 

Limited or no clinical data exists regarding the efficacy and tolerance of this treatment in patients having a history of, or currently suffering from, auto-immune disease or auto-immune deficiency or being under immunosuppressive therapy. The clinician shall therefore decide on the indication on a case by case basis according to the nature of the disease and its treatment and the need for monitoring post-treatment. Your clinician will discuss the need for a preliminary skin testing for hypersensitivity if necessary, or in the case of patients with severe or multiple allergies. Patients on coagulation medication or other substances known to increase coagulation time must be aware of the potential increased risk of bleeding and hematoma during and following treatment.

 

Your clinician will also discuss the suitability of treatment having considered your medical history and any medications you currently take, as appropriate. As such, it is imperative you disclose such medications at the time of your treatment.

 

Additional Information

 

Depending on the specific product used the aesthetic effect can last 6 – 18 months. Please ask your doctor to advise you regarding specific expected longevity for your treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a non-permanent treatment which is fully biocompatible, degradable, and dissolvable. Patients should avoid aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication prior to treatment, where possible to minimize the risk of bruising. Your clinician may wish to defer treatment should you have an active cold sore lesion in the vicinity of proposed treatment.

 

Most treatments are relatively painless but for more superficial treatment you may require a topical anesthetic to be applied for at least 30 minutes pre-treatment.

 

Please be aware that if filler needs to be dissolved for any reason, you must wait 2 weeks after being dissolving before attending another filler treatment in that area. 

 

Post Treatment

 

There may be some tenderness, redness and swelling to the site, this is very normal, and this usually subsides within a few days. Bruising is an occasional outcome and generally resolves. It is important to let your clinician know prior to treatment if you have important work or social engagements which may cause you embarrassment should you bruise excessively. It is recommended not to wear make up for to 12 hours post treatment in most cases. It is advisable to avoid extreme temperatures until tenderness and redness subsides. Similarly, strenuous exercise or alcohol would best be avoided for 24 hours. Please ask your clinician for an after-care sheet which will give important contact details and a summary of our advice. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any concerns post treatment.
