After dermal filler injections, the most common side effects tend to be bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness or slight bleeding at the injection site, which can take two to three days to vanish completely.

Occasionally, worldwide, allergic reactions have been reported and include redness, hardness at the injection site, and lumps and bumps under the skin. More serious side effects are rare if your injections are carried out by an experienced medical professional. This is why it’s so important to choose a practitioner with the credentials and experience to offer this treatment.
