Procedure review

I want this to be a warning to anyone considering getting Expressions injectable fillers. I had a horrible reaction to them almost 5 years ago and I still feel the need to warn others. I believe the Expressions filler solution was contaminated at the time I was injected and my face swelled up to nearly three times its normal size. The plastic surgeon who injected me was shocked and said he had never seen someone have such an adverse reaction. He quickly put two drains in either side of my face to drain all the fluid that had collected. It was an absolute nightmare and I’m fortunate I wasn’t left with more permanent damage. Expression’s manufacturer caused a lot of damage to a number of people! The FDA even issued a warning to medical professionals not to use it as a filler injectable. Please people, stay away from this stuff. Go with one of the more established injectables, such as Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse.
