Help us make Dermal Fillers safer...SIGN OUR PETITION

We’re terrified the public will be harmed by unqualified people injecting contaminated or counterfeit filler after a law change unintentionally removed all regulations!

Did you know that dermal filler can cause serious problems like blindness, stroke and disfigurement in the wrong hands? 

We need to keep you safe! Please sign this petition to Health Minister, David Clarke, calling for filler treatments to be limited to trained health professionals like doctors, nurses and dentists. 

The photo is of Carol Bryan who was treated by a doctor overseas with silicon. Silicon is a permanent filler. NZSCM advises against permanent filler and few trained injectors in NZ use them. However since deregulation, there has been a case in NZ of a member of the public self injecting permanent filler.

We are fearful that deregulation will lead to more problems with untrained injectors who don’t understand the risks. Carol has agreed to the use of her image. She now campaigns for better regulation of dermal fillers and has helped by approaching the NZ Ministry of Health to reinstate filler regulation.
