This case report is about a 64-year-old woman who presented at the Emergency Walk-in Center with palpebral edema as well as various erythematous plaques in supraciliary and malar areas that have been gradually worsening a couple of days prior to presentation. While talking about history, the patient mentioned she was attending, for about four months, an Esthetic Private Clinic, where she was injected in various sessions with Metacrill®, as a facial lift, for beauty purpose. Due to suspecting an allergic reaction to the Metacrill and the failure of the initial treatments, she was referred to the dermatologist. After failed attempts to treat the patient with corticosteroids and antibiotics, the patient was sent for autoimmunity consultation at the hospital where she received an immunosuppressive treatment with Tacrolimus and was not presenting new symptoms ever since.
