Increased laxity and filler migration
i understand your concerns. But, no, filler does not migrate and does not cause more facial laxity. Actually, when larger volumes are injected, fibroblasts stretch in the skin and a very interesting phenomenon has been observed: the physical stretching somehow activates them and they begin to be much more productive, making more of the structural proteins that make your skin thick, supple and tight.
I am not sure why you percieve the opposite but encourage you to discuss with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon, as there may be an adjustment that will make you much happier.
