Persistent, inflamed bumps after Restylane or other HA fillers.

Restyline filler occasionally (like small lumps) gets inflamed an swollen. My surgeon has injected a solution a few times but it keeps flaring up and the lumps are tender and swollen. I was prescribed prednisolone tables which makes it better but don't like taking them. Infact, the left lower jaw often looks uneaven with the swelling and I pretend its a toothache. It always get better but I don't know when it is going to flare up. You answer would be grateful.thanks Hasna

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
