Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and Facial Fillers
OUR PATIENT’S HEALTH AND SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY
With Covid-19 vaccines being administered across the country, headlines are buzzing with the latest incidents that occurred to patients who received the Moderna Vaccine and had facial fillers.
The reported cases included patients with dermal fillers who had experienced an adverse swelling reaction (up to 2 days) after receiving the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. Each of the episodes were quickly resolved with the use of steroids and/or antihistamines. The incidents reported are rare and the temporary swelling responses have been mild in each case. None of the incidents were considered life threatening or required hospital time, the use of an EpiPen or have resulted in any long-term complications.
Maffi Clinics is following the recommendations of the FDA, the CDC, The Aesthetic Society and others to safely make decisions regarding filler and the Covid-19 vaccine. At this time, we place confidence that having a history of facial fillers should not impede you from receiving the vaccine.
We will continue to monitor any further recommendations given by the FDA, the CDC and The Aesthetic Society as needed.
