Safety and Side Effects
Restylane, Perlane and Juvéderm contain only minimally modified hyaluronic acid, which is a natural constituent of human tissues. It is biocompatible and very safe. There are no contraindications to the use of these products and precautions are mainly those that should be observed for any filler injection.
Some injection related reactions may develop, such as transient redness, itching, swelling, pain, tenderness, or discoloration at the treatment site. Typically, resolution is spontaneous, occurring from one to two days after injections in the skin, or a week after injection in the lips.
Usually there is no recovery time with the hyaluronic acid fillers. The exception is the lips, where the swelling may be noticeable for up to one week. If there is any bruising, it is usually gone within a week, but we have ways to make bruising disappear much more quickly, so you should call us if it occurs.
Questions and Answers
What do Restylane, Perlane, and Juvéderm contain?
The products are formulated with stabilized HA (Hyaluronic Acid) and a solution of physiological sodium chloride. They are colorless viscous gels, which are supplied in glass syringes. The hyaluronic acid is biosynthetically produced by bacterial fermentation.
Does it hurt?
In sensitive areas, such as the lips, we use nerve blocks to eliminate discomfort. We dilute our fillers with lidocaine and use ice to make the procedure almost painless.
Before treatment instructions:
You should tell Dr. Bock about all the medicines that you are taking. If possible, avoid aspirin, blood thinners, Vitamin E, ibuprofen and related pain medications for about 10 days before the procedure.
