Microneedling Consent Form

Treatment with hyaluronic acid and other injectable dermal fillers can help smooth out folds and wrinkles, add volume to the cheeks, temple, lips, and contour facial features that have lost their fullness due to aging, sun exposure, illness, etc. In healthy individuals without autoimmune issues or infections, HA fillers and other injectable dermal fillers can be performed with minimal to no complications in most cases, however, I have reviewed risks and consent to treatment.

Risks and Complications include but are not limited to the following. Please check each box indicating acknowledgement:


  • Facial Bruising, redness, swelling, itching and pain. These symptoms are usually mild and last less than a week but can last longer. Patients who are using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, Warfarin, or certain vitamins and supplements, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
  • Nodules and palpable material. You may be able to feel the filler material in the area where the material has been injected. Any foreign material injected into the body may create the possibility of swelling or other local reactions to a filler material.
  • Migration. Filler may move from the place where it was injected.
  • Infection. All transcutaneous procedures carry the risk of infection.
  • History of Herpes Infection. Filler carries the risk of a recurrence of an outbreak of herpes and that outbreak could be severe in nature.
  • Allergic Reactions.
  • Keloids/Scarring. Known susceptibility to keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring has not been studied.
  • Accidental Injection into a blood vessel. Filler can accidentally be injected into a blood vessel, which may block the blood vessel and cause local tissue damage or potentially even a heart attack, stroke, or blindness.
  • Duration of Effect. The outcome of treatment will vary among patients. In some instances, additional treatments may be necessary to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Concomitant Dermal Therapies. I understand that the safety of dermal fillers with concomitant dermal therapies such as epilation, UV radiation, laser, mechanical or chemical peeling procedures, massage, use of clarisonic skin cleansing brush has not been evaluated in controlled clinical trials. The use of any of these procedures is not recommended as such treatments may alter the characteristics of the filler for 2 weeks following this treatment.
  • It is not recommended that you have dermal fillers injected if you are nursing or pregnant.
  • Sun Exposure. Sun exposure should be minimized for approximately 24 hours after treatment or until any initial swelling or redness goes away.
  • There are very rare times where people can develop delayed swelling or a delayed inflammatory nodule that seems to be triggered by some sort of immune system stimulation like an infection somewhere in the body or even after a vaccination.
  • authorize the taking of clinical photographs for purposes of documentation of treatment. I understand that refusal of photos will result in not having treatments performed.

  • I am not pregnant or trying to become pregnant nor am I breastfeeding
  • I do not have any major illnesses, including Auto-immune issues or active cancer
  • I do not have multiple allergies or high sensitivity to medications, including but not limited to lidocaine or bee stings.
