Top-Q dermal filler sold with false CE mark

06 Aug 2021

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has revealed that models of Top-Q dermal filler are being sold with a falsely applied CE Mark.

The MHRA has warned practitioners that the hyaluronic acid filler has not been obtained with regulatory oversight for products claiming a medical purpose. These devices have been manufactured to unknown standards and their safety as medical devices cannot be verified, explains the MHRA.

The MHRA advises users providing treatment to not use any Top-Q dermal fillers in their possession, to not buy any Top-Q dermal fillers, report any suspected or adverse events involving these devices through their local incident reporting system and or national reporting authority as appropriate, and to contact the MHRA team about concerns regarding any devices they have or intend to purchase.
