With any injectable treatments, it is still necessary to be aware of the possible risks involved. Dermal fillers over the past 15 years has improved and the risks are very minimal.
During post treatment, the patient may experience swelling, bruising or redness at the injection site. Theses are the common side effects after having the dermal filler procedure. There may be mild pain and slight tenderness because of the disturbance of the soft tissue. Another aftereffect may include itchiness. These side effects should not be considered serious and will normally disappear within 72 hours or within a week. Make-up may be applied to conceal any redness or swelling.
In very rare cases, dermal fillers may trigger skin sores. This happens when the filler is not absorbed by the body well. There is only a small number of reports with infection, bleeding or allergic reaction to bovine collagen which we do not use at the clinic at all. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), risks linked with dermal fillers are “uncommon” and vary on the type of filler used.
Fillers has been known to move to another location from the injection site. This is not occurring very often and was only reported when fillers were first introduced. This is known as Filler Migration and it happens when the tissues react after injecting the product. In the past, there were documents of filler leakage, hard nodules on the injection side or even anaphylactic shock for those who had a severe allergic reaction. These are very rare occurrences in former times and not to be feared by anyone wanting to have a procedure now.
