Although a very thin needle is used, common injection-related reactions could occur. These could include: some initial swelling, pain, itching, discoloration, bruising or tenderness at the injection site . You could experience increased bruising if you are using aspirin or there non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
These reactions generally lessen or disappear within a few days but may last for a week or longer.
As with all injections, this procedure carries the risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and standard precautions associated with injectable materials should be taken.
Some visible lumps may occur temporarily following the injection.
If you are considering laser treatment, chemical skin peeling or any other procedure based on a skin response after Filler treatment or you have recently had such treatments and the skin has not healed completely, there is a possible risk of an inflammatory reaction at the implant site.
Most patients are pleased with the results of Filler use. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there is no guarantee that you will be completely satisfied. There is no guarantee that wrinkles and folds will disappear completely. You might need additional treatments to achieve the results you would desire. Additional treatments will be required periodically, generally within 6 months to one year.
After treatment, you should minimize exposure of the treated area to excessive sun or UV light. Extreme cold or heat should be avoided until swilling or redness has gone away.
This is strictly a voluntary cosmetic procedure.
