Possible side effects

Salvecoll® can have side effects, although not everyone experiences them. The administration of Salvecoll® requires surgical intervention, thus adverse effects that may occur as a result of those interventions, but are not necessarily associated with the gel or membrane itself may include:

  • Bleeding at the injection site
  • Infection at the site of injection
  • Nausea
  • Fever and pain
  • Rash
  • Cyanosis and edema

The following side effects can be associated with the use of Salvecoll®:

  • Discoloration of the treated area
  • Erythema (skin redness)
  • Tenderness and swelling at the injection site

The following phenomenon are not observed when using Salvecoll®:

  • Migration from the injection site
  • Formation of granulomas
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Atrophy

Furthermore, over correction is permissible and disappears without any intervention. Necrosis can occur only when the site treated is infected.
