I'm 52 and have hashimotos thyroid. I had restylane 7 years ago, and would like to do it again. Would it be risky?

Hashimotos Thyroid and Restylane
Auto-immune Hashimoto's thyroiditis and use of injectibles such as Restylane
Restylane and similarly made HA's (hyaluronic acid fillers) are a molecule made to be bio-identical to human skin HA and therefore this molecule would have no immunogenic reaction in the body. When Restylane and other injectibles are purified for human use, there maybe micro-impurities which stimulate a allergic style response.
The cross-reactivity of one molecule stimulating a immunogenic response to another molecule is even more rare.
I would recommend you contact your endocrinologist or rheumatologist to see if there is any cross-reactivity between these 2 molecules or any other concerns you should consider.
I anticipate the benefits will far outweigh the risks. Good luck.
