Common Reactions to Injectable Poly-L Lactic Acid

Common Side Effects

The most common side effects of injectable poly-L lactic acid included:
 
  • Swelling -- in up to 81 percent of people
  • Tenderness -- up to 81 percent
  • Redness -- up to 77.6 percent
  • Pain after the injection -- up to 70.7 percent
  • Bruising -- up to 64.7 percent
