Inflammation post prelane injection to cheek
Thank you for your question.
It is possible that the tenderness and redness that you are experiencing in the cheeks may be a localised infection in the area or allergic reaction to the topical post treatment cream you've been given to use on the area.
For your safety, I recommend that you consult with an appropriately trained and highly experienced practitioner to review your progress and manage any infection/allergic reaction appropriately.
Redness and heat after Perlane
Perlane is an excellent filler, with very little side effects from allergy. The experience you are going through is not normal. It would be usual for an infection to occur hours after the injection, you do need to see you injector (hopefully a Board certified Doctor) immediately. Need to rule out other rare complications of filler injections. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane, Australia.
