CosmoPlast is a collagen-based filler that doesn't require prior allergy testing since it's grown from human cells.

CosmoPlast Side Effects

Bruising, redness, tenderness, itchiness.

Who shouldn't use it: CosmoPlast injections can be harmful if you have rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, or have ever gone into anaphylactic shock. An allergy to lidocaine also means no CosmoPlast, since the product contains this numbing agent. The filler can irritate existing cysts, acne, rashes, and hives.

Drawbacks: Collagen injections are eventually reabsorbed by the body, so touchups are required every few months to maintain results. You can't just inject endless amounts of CosmoPlast into your body though. There are limitations. No more than 30 mL of CosmoPlast can be injected into the body in a given year. Human collagen injections are more costly than bovine collagen fillers, like Zyderm and Zyplast.

Recovery Time For CosmoPlast

Though you should be able to return to work right away, it's smart to stay out of the sun, sauna, gym, and any other sweat-creating activities for about a day, or at least until the initial redness and swelling dies down. Wait at least six hours before touching the injection site.

After care for CosmoPlast: Ice packs can help cut down on post-procedure redness and swelling. Until the side effects have decreased, avoid exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol. Purchase a good concealer, as this will help to hide bruising during the first few days.
