- This pandemic has changed how we look after ourselves
- You can still get dermal fillers when vaccinated
- It is important to consult with your cosmetic injector and be honest
The pandemic has certainly changed how we take care of our bodies. Here in Adelaide, we have been quite fortunate compared to the rest of the world and even our friend’s interstate. We anticipate greater changes in our attitudes and more attention to our hygiene, health and well-being.
A question that is often raised when discussing Dermal Fillers and procedures such as lip fillers, is whether it is safe to undertake this procedure if one has had the Covid 19 vaccine.
The response is that any procedure in cosmetic medicine has risks to consider which highlights the importance of working with an experienced and qualified injector.
Dermal Fillers and Vaccinations
With any vaccinations, it is important to let your injector know about any medications and allergies you may have. Depending on the vaccine, there may be known side effects so consult with us freely before proceeding with your dermal filler and be open and honest to get the best outcome.
Note: Covid 19 Vaccinations
We are aware that there have been reported but rare cases of mild swelling in patients that have taken both Covid 19 vaccinations and dermal fillers with cases reportedly resolved with steroids and/or antihistamines without the need for hospitalisation. While not all vaccine brands have had reported cases, we also pay close attention to news in the industry to ensure that we provide you with the latest advice.
In summary, we cannot emphasise enough the importance of working with an experienced and qualified practice that specialises in cosmetic medicine. Risks are minimised when you work with a trusted professional and when you are open and honest about your situation.
Together we can work together to achieve your goals. If you have any questions about Dermal Fillers or any of our services in cosmetic medicine, don’t be shy and get in touch today.
