Can Restylane or Juvederm Cause Edema when It Starts to Break Down?
Can fillers like Restylane and Juvederm cause unwanted fluid accumulation when they start to break down? I am reading posts online whereby people have experienced varying degrees of edema starting several months after the filler has been administered. In some circumstances the fluid retention has stayed for years, especially when around the eyes. Is this rare and what can be done if it occurs? I have found one paper that concluded Hyaluronidase does not fully resolve "doughy" edema.
