Are There Risks Associated with Dermal Fillers?

Are you considering dermal fillers to help fill out the wrinkles in your skin? These can be highly effective, but, as is the case with many such procedures, you’ll want to know what you’re getting into before your treatment. There are certain risks associated with dermal fillers, and the FDA advises that you avoid dermal fillers if you have any of the following:

  • Severe allergies associated with anaphylactic shock
  • A tendency to develop excessive scarring
  • A bleeding disorder
  • Active inflammatory conditions, such as cysts, rashes, hives, acne, or an infection
  • Allergies to collagen or lidocaine, if you are considering a filler that contains either material
