If you are going to receive any type of dermal filler, including hyaluronic and non hyaluronic filler, please wait two week before or after any vaccine.
Information below is from the DermatologyTimes.
• 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 such as oral corticosteroids and hyaluronidase (an enzyme used to dissolve filler), and often times resolve without treatment.
• 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.
Please reach out if you have any concerns or questions regarding vaccinations and your medical esthetic treatments.
