Reduce the risk of complications when using fillers

The Bsure DNA test for fillers detects whether could have an increased risk of serious complications when using fillers. This can be genetically determined. The test is a one – off. You only have to do it once.

With a positive result, the chance of serious complications is 80% greater than in someone without a genetic predisposition. If the test results are positive, the use of fillers is therefore not recommended.

Why the Bsure DNA test for filler treatments?

This test has been developed to better understand how your immune system will respond to the use of fillers. There is a chance that the use of fillers can lead to serious complications with long-lasting consequences.

You may have a genetic predisposition that makes your own immune system react in an extreme manner to fillers. The fillers are then rejected by your body.

About the test

The test is based on scientific research conducted by academic hospitals in the Netherlands and Spain. In collaboration with renowned medical researchers Bsure has developed the test and made it available to the consumer. The DNA test fillers is an IVD CE self-declared product in accordance with IVDD (98/79/EEC), is UKCA marked and conforms the UK Medical Devices Regulations (2002 no. 618).

Scientific research

The patented test is based on scientific research. The study showed that patients in the study population with a combination of two specific genes had more than 80% chance of serious complications from filler treatments. Medical complications that can occur include chronic and/or localized inflammation that may require months or years of medical treatment and can cause lifelong symptoms. An article on the study and results was published in PUBMED in January 2021 (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33300274/).

The Bsure DNA test shows whether you have this genetic predisposition. The result is therefore very simple: you have the genetic predisposition (positive) or not (negative). With a positive result, there is a high chance of getting serious complications after filler treatments. With a negative result, the risk of developing complications after a filler treatment is not excluded but will be low.

How does the test work?

The test will be launched on the UK market in June 2022.

After the launch you will be able to order the test at your clinic/doctor. To do the test, your doctor will take a simple saliva sample and send it to our laboratory for analysis. A few weeks after sending the saliva sample, your doctor or clinic will contact you to discuss the results of the test.
