When silicone injections in the face cause bumps and lesions, they can be safely removed with minimal discomfort and downtime. Our cosmetic dermatology specialties include silicone injection removal for smoother skin, greater comfort, and more confidence.
In the worst cases, silicone injections can become very harmful, and even life-threatening. When liquid silicone is injected near blood vessels, it may travel through the bloodstream and spread to other parts of the body, including the lungs, the heart, or the brain. This can result in blood clots, strokes, and other serious issues.
Silicone injections can become painful and infected, which is very uncomfortable. Many people who develop bumps and lesions as a result of silicone injections think they are unnatural looking. Silicone injection removal is a good choice to restore your natural beauty, and protect yourself from unnecessary risks and discomfort.
Injecting a cortisone solution will diminish the appearance of bumps caused by silicone injection without a time-consuming and costly surgical removal. The cortisone injection will cause slight burning at the injection site, which can be cooled right away with ice. After several weeks, additional treatments may be recommended. But one cortisone injection may be sufficient for less severe bumps and lesions.
