Risks - Wrinkle Fillers

As in any medical procedure, there are risks involved with the use of injectable wrinkle fillers. That is why it is important for you to understand their limits and possible risks.

Most side effects associated with wrinkle fillers happen shortly after injection and most go away after several days.

In some cases the side effects may appear weeks, months or years after injection.

Any injectable wrinkle filler could cause long-term side effects, permanent side effects, or both.

Common side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Itching, rash

Less common side effects include:

  • Raised bumps in or under the skin (nodules or granulomas) that may need to be surgically removed
  • Infection
  • Open or draining wounds
  • A sore at the injection site
  • Allergic reaction
  • Necrosis (tissue death)

Allergy testing is required for particular types of filler materials, such as those taken from cows (bovine). In rare cases, severe allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) that requires immediate emergency medical assistance can occur.

The following side effects have also been reported to FDA:

  • Migration/ movement of filler material from the site of injection
  • Leakage or rupture of the filler material at the injection site or through the skin (which may result from tissue reaction or infection)
  • Blurred vision and flu-like symptoms

If you choose to have these fillers removed through surgery, you may experience the same risks typically associated with surgery. You should be aware that it may be difficult to remove the filler material. Wrinkle fillers should not be injected into blood vessels, because they may obstruct blood flow.
