Continue to follow up with your primary care physician (or see an infectious disease doctor) for treatment of cellulitis and continued antibiotic therapy. Best, Dr. Emer
Infection After Bellafill Injections
I am very sorry to hear that you are going through this. An infection after any filler injection is extremely rare. Hopefully you have had a complete culture profile done. There is a possibility that the injection and that infection are coincidental but it really does not matter. The treatment would be same. Usually, infections of this magnitude that do not respond to oral antibiotics take a few weeks to resolve as long as you are being given the right drugs.
Best of luck
Facial infection after filler is rare but certainly happens and I am so sorry you are going through this! Be sure to have a plastic surgeon involved as well if you don't already, they may need to intervene here.
