Moderna COVID-19 vaccine could affect those who have facial fillers?

“We’re about to find out who’s lying about their skincare routine.”

  • The FDA noted that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine showed side effects in those who have facial fillers.
  • They stated that it’s because the immune system causes the inflammation to rev up.
  • Netizens poked fun at the news. 

If you’re someone who has had facial fillers injected, the COVID-19 vaccine Moderna might not be for you. The Food and Drug Administration‘s (FDA) advisory stated that people who have undergone the procedure may experience swelling and inflammation.

The committee noted that several of its participants with fillers have experienced the said side effects because of the immune system’s reaction to the vaccine.

“Your immune system which causes inflammation is revved up when you get a vaccine, that’s how it’s supposed to work,” said Dr. Shirley Chi, a California-based dermatologist.

She added that the side effects were immediately treated.

“So it makes sense that you would see an immune response in certain areas where they see some substance that is not a naturally occurring substance in your body,” she stated.

“A couple of the patients had cheek filler six months prior to their vaccine and one patient had lip filler done two days after the vaccine. All were treated with steroids and anti-histamines and all of their reactions resolved.”

Though swelling may be experienced, she still encouraged people to get themselves shot with the vaccines.

Netizens have then caught up with the news and tweeted out memes regarding the situation.

Another even said that the photo is a representation of what Instagram photos will be like in 2021.

Another even said that those who want fuller lips may actually hit two birds with one stone if they use the Moderna vaccine.

“Celebrities on high alert,” Mike Sington stated.

A netizen even said that the vaccine melting her fillers will be her “villain origin story.”

“We’re about to find out who’s lying about their skincare routine.”

However, this Twitter user pointed out that not all fillers are used for cosmetic purposes.

Another emphasized that the swelling is easily treated and is not a reason to stay away from the vaccine.
