Risks Of Facial Filler Injections
Just like with any surgical or nonsurgical procedure, facial filler injections have risks and can cause adverse events which can range from mild to severe.
Mild side effects
One can experience mild, transient side effects from the procedure such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. These usually go away between 7 to 14 days, if not sooner.
Serious side effects
When fillers are injected by an untrained physician, serious side effects can ensue such as the formation of lumps, allergic reactions, skin discoloration, infection, and severe swelling.
