Go back to doctor? Go to urgent care?

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Restylane

Q. Tried Restylane 2 days ago from a reputable doctor, injection was for the crease in the middle of my forehead which is red, sore and swollen (expected). The unexpected when I woke up this morning is that the filler has moved down the sides of my nose swelling my eyelids and affecting my view. Is this part of the normal process or should I seek medical help. Its hard to know since I’ve never had this done before.

A. Please:

  1. Return to your injector immediately.
  2. If your injector is unavailable seek the examination and care of a emergency room.

I wish you the best!
