A 32-year-old member asked:

what are risks of restylane (dermal fillers) injections?

Safe/short lasting: There are pro's and con's to every procedure. The main risk with any injectable fillers are lumpiness, over-correction, under-correction, needing to repeat procedure periodically. There is a rare risk of injecting the filler into a blood vessel, which can lead to blood flow compromise. With blunt needles, or microcannulas, this risk is reduced. An advantage of Restylane (dermal fillers) that it can be dissolved.
Dr. Thomas Fiala
Plastic Surgery 33 years experience
Relatively minor....: Over/under-correction, irregular contour, tyndall effect with "blue bleb" if injected way too superficially, early reabsorption, and the usual swelling and bruising that can go along with any injection. Allergic reactions are very rare.
Dr. Barry Cohen

Usually: Bruising and lumpiness it is reversible!
Dr. Suzanne Galli

Can you drink after having radiesse (dermal fillers) injections?

Drinking p/ Radiesse (dermal fillers): Theoretically you can drink after your Radiesse (dermal fillers) injection. I take it you mean alcohol. I do not recommend my patients drink alcohol on the day of their Radiesse (dermal fillers) treatment. There is a risk of bruising with this and other dermal filler treatments and i tend to be somewhat conservative in my approach, so that my patients have the best outcome possible.
