Dermal filler patient suffered from flu-like symptoms

Mary Catchpole decided to use dermal fillers to look fresh for her wedding day.

After the treatment she suffered from vomiting, diarrhoea, sickness and flu-like symptoms.

Speaking to Daybreak she said: "I wish I'd have looked more at adverse effects, and basically if there was stricter labelling, stricter warnings, if there was compulsory skin tests, which there isn't," she added, "I would not have gone through with the injections."
