Current ASDS guidance regarding dermal fillers and the vaccine are as follows:
- Dermal filler inflammatory events very seldom occur with both hyaluronic acid and non-hyaluronic acid fillers.
- Evidence suggests these reactions can be immunologically triggered by viral and bacterial illness, vaccinations (i.e., influenza vaccine) and dental procedures.
- These rare adverse events are temporary and respond to treatments.
- Patients already treated with dermal fillers should not be discouraged or precluded from receiving vaccines of any kind. Patients who have had vaccines should not be precluded from receiving dermal fillers in the future.
Patients can get their filler two weeks before their vaccine. We are recommending patients wait two weeks after their second vaccination.
Please call us with any questions and remember a history of prior dermal fillers does NOT prevent one from being vaccinated.
