The FDA advisory committee pointed out that people who use cosmetic facial fillers may experience swelling and inflammation from a coronavirus vaccine.
According to the committee, some test participants who used fillers have already experienced side effects. ABC7 reported on Thursday that California-based dermatologists said the reaction was immune.
“When you are vaccinated, the immune system that causes inflammation will work faster, and this is how it should work,” said Dr. Shirley Chi, who pointed out that this side effect is easily treated by medical staff.
“Therefore, in some areas that you see are not substances that are naturally produced in your body, you will see an immune response.”
She said, however, side effects should not prevent people from getting the vaccine.
Chi said: “In these cases, all patients have swelling and inflammation in the area where the filler is used.”
Two patients underwent buccal filling six months before vaccination, while another patient underwent lip filling two days after vaccination. All patients were treated with steroids and antihistamines, and all reactions were resolved. “
Last Friday, Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine was approved by the FDA, providing an alternative to Pfizer and BioNTech.
Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, told the Associated Press that these two tasks are “better than we could hardly hope.” “Science works here, and science has achieved amazing achievements.”
The early results of a large but unfinished study showed that although the Moderna vaccine does not need to be stored at ultra-freezing temperatures, it is easier to handle, so both vaccines appear to be safe and highly protective.
