Question : I know swelling and bruising are possible complications with any injectables, but are there any other potential complications associated with Restylane?
Answer : All injectable aesthetics have potential complications. There is a risk of injecting into a blood vessel or in a small artery which can cause some tissue loss in the skin. Patients can also react, though rare, to any of the compounds. Bruising, bleeding, hematoma, and swelling are quite common with these injectable agents.
