Bellafill at the Corners of the Mouth
Bellafill is comprised of mostly of collagen and collagen
injections have long nee known to make lumps.
They almost always get better in time (usually 3 months). If you cannot see them, I always recommend
just leaving them alone. If you can see
them, serial injections with low doses of Kenalog 10, an injectable steroid
used for things like scars, works very well.
If the overlying area is red and blistered, then you may have a true
granuloma, which is very rare, or you may well have a cold sore, which is much
more common. A herpes culture would sort
that out for you.
I hope that helps.
I suggest speaking to your physician. Massage, 5fu/steroid injections and venus legacy treatments can help soften the lumps. Best, Dr. Emer.
I definitely suggest visiting your injector if you have recently developed the lumps. Anyone can have a reaction to the collagen in Bellafill, even if you had a negative skin test. As mentioned, there's always something to be done to improve issues, but you've got to let the physician do
