Is It Safe for rheumatologic patients to Get filler?

No causal relationship has been established between the use of filler and autoimmune diseases like dermatomyositis/polymyositis, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis or scleroderma. Their use is therefore not contraindicated in patients suffering from those diseases. But Women with lupus need to take precautions before seeking certain beauty treatments like fillers, or laser treatment. Some procedures can increase the risk of the Koebner phenomenon, which is when lupus develops in a skin area that’s provoked or damaged.

*Anti-ds DNA antibodies cross-react with collagen and hence, *collagen based fillers are contraindicated for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus.
