"Nobody should be getting their hands on this stuff to self-treat," Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon warns. He goes on to explain that injecting filler into a blood vessel can cause the loss of tissue in that area, similar to a severe burn.

Dr. Ordon also says the improper use of fillers can cause necrosis, the death of most or all of the cells in an organ or tissue due to disease, injury, or failure of the blood supply.
