Explore your genetic suitability for dermal fillers with the BSURE genetic test

The BSURE genetic test is a DNA test that can be used to determine whether you have a genetic predisposition to severe complications from dermal filler injections. The test is based on research that has shown that there is a link between certain genetic variants and an increased risk of these complications.

The BSURE genetic test is a simple and non-invasive procedure. It involves taking a saliva sample, which can be done at home or in a clinic. The test results will be available within a few weeks.

The benefits of the BSURE test include:

  • It can help to determine whether you are at an increased risk of serious complications from dermal filler injections.
  • It is a simple and non-invasive procedure.
  • The test results are reliable and accurate.
  • The test can help you to make an informed decision about whether or not to go ahead with dermal filler injections.

The BSURE test is a questionnaire used to assess a person’s suitability for dermal fillers. It stands for Blood Supply Undisturbed Reasonable Expectations. The test was developed by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) to help doctors identify patients who are most likely to benefit from dermal fillers and have a positive experience.

Anyone considering dermal fillers should take the BSURE test. It is especially important for people who have any underlying health conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, diabetes, or blood clotting disorders.

The BSURE test should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete.

For each test, we’ll take a detailed medical history and talk to you about your general lifestyle, explaining how that may impact your concerns and treatment results. We’ll then take a swab off your saliva, before sending this off for DNA analysis. When the results come back in a few weeks’ time, we’ll invite you into clinic to go through them in depth and outline all suitable treatment options. Genetic testing is a truly revolutionary approach to aesthetics and is something our patients really value and benefit from!
