Are Dermal Fillers Dangerous with COVID-19 Vaccine?

Moderna’s vaccine has recently become a topic of conversation in med spas as patients ask the question “are dermal fillers dangerous with COVID-19 vaccine?

News of potential danger for filler patients spread rapidly as it was reported that three participants in Moderna’s study experienced swelling in the face due to dermal fillers.

The Patients

The three patients identified during the Moderna vaccine study are all believed to have experienced swelling due to prior dermal filler treatment.

Two patients experienced swelling after being vaccinated, while the third patient experienced swelling two days after being vaccinated.

Should I Be Worried?

In short, no.

According to the experts, the likelihood of swelling occurring in patients with dermal filler treatments is so small it is not considered to be a significant risk.

Moreover, this side effect is very minor in nature and is easily remedied through antihistamines and prednisone from your doctor.

Overall, the benefits of the vaccine are believed to far outweigh any potential for swelling side effects in patients who have dermal fillers.

Do Other Vaccines Cause Swelling?

The COVID-19 vaccine is not the only vaccine where swelling has been identified in patients who have undergone filler treatments.

In fact, many other vaccines have been known to trigger this response and it is not a new phenomenon for doctors to see.
