Let’s connect the Dots.
Fillers or Dermal Fillers are used to fill in wrinkles, add volume to lips, give a slight lift to sagging skin and fill in contour irregularities. More than 1 million men and women annually choose this facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.
According to reports in Los Angeles, the FDA advisory committee that reviewed the results of clinical trials for the Moderna vaccine noted a specific side effect for people in the trial who had cosmetic facial fillers: inflammation and swelling where those fillers had been injected.
Swelling is a common concern after receiving Dermal Fillers without having had the vaccine.
Filler sites swelled but recovered easily.
A couple of the patients in question had facial fillers injected in their cheeks months before getting the vaccine. Another one had lip fillers a couple days after getting the vaccine. No word on how bad the reactions were but swelling and inflammation were reported. The patients were treated with steroids and antihistamines and recovered.
It's just an immune response.
So why the swelling? Doctors say when you get a vaccine it revs up your immune system. And since fillers are technically a foreign object in your body that revved up immune system may see them as a threat and attack, causing a type of allergic reaction. However, doctors do stress people with fillers should still get the vaccine since reactions were easily treated with common medications.
One of the most common compounds used in Dermal Fillers is hyaluronic acid. HA is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, and it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and volumized.
