Did you get skin test first?


Unfortunately, there is no way to undo this filler. The bovine collagen is gone quickly, however. The PMMA is the part that stays around a while, and it stimulates your own collagen. I think you need to see a dermatologist about these rashes and get a biopsy. The rash could be a coincidence and unrelated to the filler.
