Filler and Seasonal Allergies

There are no safety concerns with having a Filler treatment in the presence of seasonal allergies, but there are other factors to consider. Here are a few questions to discuss with your patient prior to treatment:
1. How might seasonal allergies affect your appearance?
2. What will the Filler look like after the allergies go away?
3. Will areas appear over-filled/under-filled once the fluid causing puffiness from seasonal allergies is reabsorbed by the body?

Filler may swell slightly months, or even years, after injection due to fluid accumulation on the product. This is more noticeable in thinner areas of the face, such as the lips and tear troughs, but it can occur anywhere product is applied. Newer hyaluronic acid Fillers in the Juvederm Collection of Fillers are designed to attract less water to their molecules once they have been absorbed by the skin. Juvederm Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella are made with Vycross technology and may be the preferred Filler for allergy sufferers due to the lower risk of unwanted swelling or puffiness.
