Mant temporary Injectable fillers are associated with serious side effects like necrosis or blindness.

The above link demonstrates an unfortunate case of facial disfigurement following a large-particle injectable-gel filler treatment, similar to Restylane. She appears to be suffering from either overcorrection or a severe allergic reaction.

There are documented cases of severe complications following injection of large-particle injectable-gel fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, just to name a few. These severe complications include necrotic, dead skin and blindness. Dr. Steven Dayan , expert injector, reported at the fall meeting of the AAFPRS in 2013 that he receives several phone calls per week from American physicians dealing with necrotic dead skin following large-particle injectable-gel filler treatments. Dr. Dayan published a thoughtful protocol instructing physicians on the importance of recognition and early treatment of impending skin necrosis.

Has anyone heard of HA fillers being associated with dead skin or blindness? All cases of blindness after large-particle injectable-gel fillers have been permanent.

In our practice we prefer to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results. There are no reported cases of skin necrosis or blindness following microdroplet silicone facial injections. This has led to very high satisfaction for us and for our patients:

As with any surgical procedure, the experience of your surgeon is critical for achieving safe, natural-looking youthful results.

Hope this is helpful.
