After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, and bruising. This will normally last less than seven days. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur. If you have had herpes before, an injection can cause the herpes to return. In rare circumstances, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you shouldn’t use Perlane®. Feel free to visit www.restylaneusa.com for more information.
