Has anyone had any effect if they have had the jab if they have previously had fillers ?

Sorry. The vaccine melts them. Your lips will go floppy. I read it on mumsnet so it must be true.

Seriously, no impact at all. Either way.

The questionnaire for Pfizer for me asked if I had fillers and I wondered why.

I'm sure I saw something about it interacting with lip fillers

LaurieFairyCake Mon 14-Jun-21 19:25:35

The research concluded it DIDNT interact with the fillers

It's literally happened to 2 people grin

They tell you not to have fillers/Botox 3 weeks before and after the vaccine.

I had Pfizer and I didn't have a questionnaire! I don't think I got asked that question on the day either.

This exactly. My doctor was very strict about this.

@Humphriescushion what’s the significance of the three weeks timescale ?

I got told to avoid fillers 3 weeks either side of the vaccination but botox is ok

I had profhilo and she was strict about waiting 3 weeks after jab.

MilesOfSand Mon 14-Jun-21 22:48:56

This is in the US so maybe that makes a difference.

I read the vaccine can cause your filler to swell/cause swelling at the filler site or something. I have family members who have/are having cosmetic treatment and they have either postponed the vaccine or their treatment.

Sorry @ endof, i am not sure why but i was booked in to have a filler and told her that it was the same day as my vaccine and she was very strict that there must be a three week delay.

There's a higher risk of infection after dermal fillers Immediately after any vaccine. This is because vaccines can lower the immune system, leaving you more open to infection.

With regards to covid. 3 patients who had previously had filler, then had the covid Vaccine and experienced severe post inflammatory responses.
I believe one was treated with steroids and the other two resolved on their own.

Post inflammatory nodules are always a risk of lip filler anyway, when the immune system is disturbed. So we are being ultra careful and telling patients to wait 2 weeks minimum before/after the vaccine.

People have postponed their vaccines so they can have lip fillers???hmm

Fucking idiots

Many people have cosmetic procedures. How do you know people aren’t postponing their fillers or whatever to have the vaccine ?

I had Pfizer and fillers not Botox were mentioned at any point before or during both jabs.

My doctor said no filler type procedures three weeks after vaccines and three weeks before. I’m wondering if the risk is more post vaccine?
I say this because I’m due Profhilo on Thursday.
My second jab is not until 12th July so that was all fine but I can’t decide whether to try and bring the second jab forward and try and get it in the next few weeks (AZ) or whether that’s a bad idea!

Delatron Tue 15-Jun-21 08:32:36

They don’t mention it when you are getting the jab as I guess it doesn’t apply to many people but it is mentioned when you are doing all the forms for filler treatment.
They are quite strict about it.

From what I have read there are a grand total of 2 people who experienced facail swelling in the filler area after having Moderna, not Pfizer. There are no concerns about Botox.
