Warning About Kenalog Injections - New Jersey, NJ

I had dilute Kenalog (Triamcinolone Acetonide 2.5mg/cc) injected in my lips to treat a couple of bumps caused by Silikon 1000. My PS told me it would only affect the area injected, but instead of dissolving the bumps, it dissolved the collagen above my lips, which left me with two very deep and discolored indentations.

I wasn’t made aware of this side effect, but have since learned that it’s a quite common one. The indentations were very noticeable, which was very distressing, however, my PS brushed it off as if it was nothing and told me that skin indentations from steroid injections tend to fill quite well with silicone – and thankfully he was right about that.

The indentations are nowhere near as noticeable as before, but the discoloration is unfortunately still evident. Obviously, I’d wish I never had it injected in the first place and I strongly advise against it.
