I had hydraulic acid-based dermal filler injected three times successfully in the past two years. Two months after my last treatment, I experienced a sudden and rare foreign body reaction. Up until this incident, I enjoyed my results. Should I/must I avoid dermal fillers now? Am I likely to experience this again having experienced it once? The reaction was in my forehead where a cannula was used to smooth lines.
You would most likely be able to have a different filler such as Juvederm or Restylane which are Hyaluronic Acid based. You should also consider Sculptra which would stimulate your own collagen. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
