Azficel-T Side Effects

In clinical studies, bruising, swelling, and redness were among the most common side effects of azficel-T. Fortunately, adverse reactions tend to be mild and easily treated. However, potentially serious problems are possible and should be reported to a healthcare provider. These include difficulty breathing and severe itching, among other things.

Are Side Effects Possible With Azficel-T?

As with most facial fillers, azficel-T (LaViv™) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who receives this treatment will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
