Facial Balancing with the Best Injector

A stunning result is attained through meticulous attention to detail, an experienced eye for aesthetics, and creative vision. The idea is to enhance your natural beauty by making your facial features complement each other in beautiful harmony.

Numerous FDA-approved fillers are available at The Best Injector, including well-known names like Radiesse, Restylane, Versa, and Juvederm.

Side Effects of Dermal Fillers Used in Facial Balancing

Let’s review the dermal fillers we use at The Best Injector for facial balancing and break down their side effects.


Juvederm is one of the most popular hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. The Juvederm family of products includes several items. They are all employed to assist people in addressing aging symptoms in the face.

Different hyaluronic acid concentrations and bonds are present in each Juvederm formulation. The various products target particular issues when injected into varying locations at differing depths. It is a dermal filler that concentrates on the face, particularly the cheeks, lips, and mouth area. 

Juvederm was given FDA approval in 2006.

Expect some bruising and swelling. Other typical adverse effects include:

  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Nodules or lumps
  • Slight discomfort
  • Itching

Usually, all of these side effects go away in two to four weeks.

Unprofessional handling, such as accidentally injecting Juvederm into a blood vessel, is frequently linked to more severe side effects. Permanent scarring, altered eyesight, blindness, or stroke can all be complications.

Carefully picking a doctor is crucial to preventing these damaging mishaps. Verify that they have the necessary education, credentials, and permits to carry out the procedure.


Restylane is another famous dermal filler brand that uses hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient.

Like a lot of other aesthetic procedures, Restylane injections also come with the possibility of side effects. Treatments with Restylane come with risks like:

  • Bleeding or bruises at the injection site
  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction
  • Inconsistencies in the filling (e.g., in the firmness of your skin)
  • Itchiness or pain at the injection site
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Headache
  • Tenderness

Depending on the treatment location, these unwanted effects usually go away in 7 to 18 days.


Versa’s typical side effects are bruising, redness, swelling, discomfort, and itching. Experiencing swelling, which could go down in a few days to a week, is expected. You might require medical attention if the swelling doesn’t go away quickly.

Unintentional injection into a blood vessel is one of the dangers of using this medicine, which could result in long-term harm. These issues could result in blindness or altered vision.

Symptoms like unexplained discomfort, vision abnormalities, blanching of the skin around the injection site, or signs of a stroke (including sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs, difficulty walking, visual changes, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness, or confusion) after the injections may require immediate medical attention.


So far, every dermal filler we covered uses varying concentrations of hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient. Radiesse is unique because it uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) as its main component. CaHA is composed of phosphate and calcium ions.

The injectable gel does all of the initial fillings in the desired volume. However, the CaHA promotes increased collagen production over time, enabling your skin to manufacture more filler. The gel’s hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon content contribute to developing a structure resembling connective tissue.

Your body eventually absorbs the CaHA. Radiesse’s science allows treatment outcomes to continue for over a year and sometimes up to two years.

Radiesse stimulates the natural production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is the fundamental protein that acts as a building block of the skin. It preserves the skin’s smooth and youthful structure.

Radiesse is a highly sought-after option because it acts immediately, lasts up to two years, and is undeniably effective.

The following were the most frequent adverse effects mentioned by those who received Radiesse facial injections:

  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Redness

Avoid this procedure if you have a history of adverse reactions or are allergic to any of the components in Radiesse. If you have an allergy to lidocaine or other comparable medicines, you should also stay away from Radiesse.

Radiesse shouldn’t be used by anyone who has a bleeding issue, is pregnant, or is nursing a baby. Those who have previously had herpes may experience an outbreak after the operation.

Never have Radiesse injections if you have a skin infection that is still active. You should report symptoms that are outside the norm to a medical professional.

Facial Balancing Effects

In most cases, the effects of facial balancing become visible on the day of your treatment. The longevity of results varies depending on which dermal filler was used, the amount of filler, and the area treated. The effects last within the range of six to twenty-five months.
