Side effects of forehead filler: swelling (swelling) and pain
Q: A woman in her mid-30s. It’s been three months since I got a forehead filler. If you press it like the first time you get hit, it hurts and your nose is swollen. When I visited the hospital, they said I had to wait and see because it couldn’t be melted. In addition to antibiotic injections, I received injections to relieve swelling. There’s still swelling left. Is this a side effect of a forehead filler?
A: There are only a few types of non-melting fillers in Korea. First, check which one you used. Swelling after several months occurs very rarely. This is a phenomenon that occurs when immunity decreases due to lack of sleep, excessive drinking, or paying a lot of attention. In this case, it is recommended to remove the filler. If symptoms appear, most of them disappear within a few days after treatment with antibiotic anti-inflammatory injections.
When a large amount of fillers are used on the forehead, swelling sometimes does not go away for a long time and suffers for a long time. Side effects such as inflammation or skin necrosis may occur.
Melting can be treated if it is a product that can be melted depending on the filler ingredients, but if you use a filler that cannot be melted, it is highly likely that it will not be solved in a short time. Visit the hospital often to check your condition.
