How soon can I get restylane after Kenalog injection?
Doctor Answers 2
HA (Restylane) injection following a Kenalog (steroid) injection
You should have no trouble receiving Restylane or any other HA (hyaluronic acid injectible) outside the area of a Kenalog skin injection.
I wish to wait 6 to 12 weeks (42 to 84 days) following injection of kenalog in a hypertrophic skin lesion to allow it to fully work prior to assessing whether a patient requires more kenalog or as you suggest a filler. This will allow you and your injector to determine the extent of atrophy caused by the steroid and the amount, type and placement of filler you will need.
Always use the most experienced, board certified plastic surgeon or injector for your skin injection needs.
I hope this was helpful! All the best!
