Potential Complications of Dermal Fillers, such as Restylane & Juvederm

Dermal Filler Complications (Restylane/Juvederm)

There are several facial filler materials that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States that have been employed by physicians for the past several years. These dermal fillers are very effective and popular cosmetic treatments for today's anti-aging and facial rejuvenation for aesthetic patients. One of the dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, which is a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer normally found as a major component of skin where it is involved in tissue repair. Hyaluronic acid injections temporarily smooth wrinkles by adding volume under the skin, with effects typically lasting for six months. Although they seem to be simple procedures, dermal filler complications may potentially occur.
