Facial injections of hyaluronic acid gel to combat aging do not pose an allergy risk for patients. However, hyaluronic acid gel does not contain lidocaine, an anesthetic, so injections can be painful. In addition, there is usually temporary inflammation that produces swelling and redness following injection with hyaluronic acid gel ? especially in the lip area.
