Are There Any Side Effects with Dermal Fillers?

Injection related reactions might include swelling, redness, discomfort and bruising at the injection site immediately after the treatment. These reactions are usually mild and resolve within a few days.

The risk of an allergic reaction is extremely rare and they are usually self-limiting. Allergic reactions can be treated with corticosteroids, or the product removed using an injectable enzyme.

As with all injections, there is risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and the standard precautions associated with using injectable materials are taken.
