The most common side effect of using collagen is "allergies". If you are allergic to the collagen material used then the severity of your reaction would be proportional to how allergic you are to the material.
Since it is injected into your system, over time the allergic reaction would gradually worsen and would affect and spread to the rest of your body making it more harmful to you.
So yes it can be harmful especially if you are allergic to the material used. It is worthy to note though that there are now many options that could replace collagen if you really wish to improve your lips.
As always, consult a doctor first before doing any procedure. :)
