Restylane- Bad Reaction - Eagan, MN

- 27 Nov 2010
I had Restylane for nasolabial lines. I am 41 year old female with fair sensitive skin. Besides the visible bruising that lasted for 3 weeks, and the swelling that lasted 2 weeks my jaw on one side was so painful I could hardly stand it. That side of my face and jaw was swollen, painful for 3 days and I was already on doxycycline for acne. I ended up having to take prednisone to resolve the swelling. I also had a few little skin bumps like acne but not quite the same along where the injections were performed. I am very concerned that if I have this done again the reaction will be worse. The doctor/derm was aware I have rheumatoid arthritis if that is a factor at all? Can you please advise?
The doctor is good overall. not sure this is a doctor issue versus a product issue.
