Have MCTD. Can I get fillers for wrinkles around my mouth and nose?

I have mctd for about 10 years, I m in very good health otherwise. You wouldn t even know I was sick by looking at me. I ve just turned 51 and have been thinking of getting fillers for wrinkles around my mouth and the creases on side of nose and mouth. It s not severe, but enough that it annoys me. Is it possible for me to have this done while having mctd?

Thanks for posting the qwery.
Dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid fillers are safe and yield good aesthetic results on injecting in the nasolabial or mentolabial folds.
They are injected just below skin level to augment dermal furrows.
In my opinion mctd is not a contraindication for dermal fillers.
