Understanding dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injections used to fill a facial crease. They can add volume to and lift the cheeks, jawline, and temples. Certain types can plump lips or improve sagging skin on the hands. Some dermal fillers boost collagen, a protein that keeps skin firm. With so many potential benefits, patients will ask, “What are the side effects?”

Recognizing potential side effects

Mild bruising or swelling near the injection site are potential side effects from dermal fillers. Rest assured these are minor and can resolve quickly. In rare cases, there can be mild to moderate bruising or swelling but usually resolves quickly; however, we take every precaution to minimize risk. We recommend arnica, ice, and eating pineapple to decrease bruising and swelling more quickly.
