What are the major side effects?
Rarely, the doctor may inadvertently inject the product into a blood vessel, which can cause injury to the blood supply and damage to the skin, or vision abnormalities including blindness
Rarely, a few people have developed infections that must be treated with antibiotics or other treatment (such as surgery). Infection may be hard to treat, but will generally go away when the gel is absorbed.
In clinical trials, 2 patients reported 4 serious adverse events (SAEs) that were considered to be related to the device and/or the procedure. One subject reported gel injection site swelling (late onset inflammatory reactions) in both cheeks at separate times. Treatments for the left and right cheeks each included antibiotics, NSAID nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen and naproxen) and hyaluronidase (a medicine to help break down the Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine so that it is more easily absorbed). The second patient experienced gel injection site bruising (hematoma) in the right cheek and gel injection site infection/abscess. Treatment of the right cheek infection/abscess and gel injection site bruising included antibiotics and a surgical procedure (incision and drainage). In the clinical trial for the hand, 4 patients with adverse events of swelling, nodules (small bump), or tenderness that were considered to be related to the device and/or the procedure received treatments that included antibiotics, NSAID nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen and naproxen) and medicine used to help breakdown HA in the body (hyaluronidase). All events resolved with treatment and time.
