COVID vaccine concerns related to dermal fillers

Cover of Dermatology Times, Feb 2021Our very own Dr. Jeffrey Dover weighs in on the ASDS guidelines addressing COVID-19 vaccine concerns related to dermal fillers for Dermatology Times.

Below are the takeaways from his quotes:

  • Inflammation at the site of filler injections following the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination seems to be similar to infrequently-reported reactions after other vaccines, like flu vaccines.
  • Such filler inflammation can be successfully treated in the unlikely event it occurs. Several reliable treatment options are available to our physicians.
  • People should get the vaccine as soon as it is available, regardless of their filler history.
  • For people who have had filler before, watch out for potential swelling in the area filler injections, and notify your dermatologist if you have any problems whatsoever.
  • For people who are slated to receive the Moderna vaccine, consider getting your filler injections after receiving 2 doses of the vaccine.
