I've already had Redexis Ultra injected in my cheecks about 4 months ago. I didn't like it, it was lumpy and it looked bas so I had the doctor dissolve it and it was 90٪ dissolved. I can still feel a little amount left. Can I have Restylane injected or would it cause problems? Thanks.
Can Redexis Ultra Be Mixed with Restylane?

ReDexis and Restylane
ReDexis is a hyaluronic acid filler, but it is not approved for use in the U.S. at this time. The difference is that the consistency is bead-like and the material is supposed to help generate new collagen. Essentially though, if not placed at a good depth, or not done by a great injector, the beads can be felt and even moved around, hence your lumpy appearance and dislike of the product. Restylane is a smooth gel hyaluronic acid so it can go into more shallow areas and feel more smooth. Restylane can be injected where ReDexis was and there's no issue with using them together, or after one another. But let me just say that all fillers are an art, and so it may not have been the product you didn't like, so much as you didn't like the way the product was injected.
