Dermal fillers are used to lift, contour, plump, and shape the tissue on the face. They have been getting some attention recently due to the reactions dermal fillers may cause to covid vaccines. To be clear, these reactions are extremely rare, and when they do occur they are temporary. Experts say there is no reason to panic and people with fillers can and should get vaccinated. However, people still maintained their suspicions and concerns. Dr. Devgan began receiving calls about the fear of vaccine related swelling from concerned patients who ultimately refused to get vaccinated. However it is clear that the risk of filler side effects from the vaccine is slim to none. There were no other reports of filler-related swelling in the vaccine trials, “other than these three instances that occurred out of the over 15,000 people enrolled in the Moderna trial. Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson's vaccines (the other vaccines currently authorized in the United States) reported no such reactions in their trials.”
To conclude: Do your part and get vaccinated.
