What are the possible side-effects of hyaluronan injections?

Hyaluronan injections have very few side-effects, although some people have a slight allergic reaction, which causes temporary pain and swelling in their joint after the injection. There’s also a small risk of infection. If the injection is done in slightly the wrong place, it won’t damage your skin or muscle.
