Redness and mild swelling after Bellafil
47 years old female, last HA filler was done 6 months ago on her NSLF. unsure about the brand. no medical condition beside migraine.
Patient concerned about the NSLF and mid-face sagging.
0.7 cc of Bellafill injected to her lateral cheek with needle ( series injection technique used) and 0.3 cc on her NSLF with cannula 25 g .
2 weeks later, patient complained about the redness and pain on her NSLF.
patient faced assessed. mild redness with good cap refill presents.
I put the patient on 30 mg prednisone and 1 week later she was feeling better. I was wondering if anyone had a same experience with Bellafill ? and suggestions?
