Rystalyne injection makes inside the mouth feel lumpy and wrinkles came back in 3 days.

I had Rystalyne injected into the areas around my mouth and nose and it was injected too deep that my skin is lumpy and saggier. How can i get this product removed? Its been 4 weeks now. I live in NJ. Also it seems like the wrinkles got deeper than before which makes me wonder what really got injected in me. The doctor that did it said they used 1CC of Rystalyne but when i asked to see the product he got very defensive. I just need this reversed. What should I do?

Lumps and restylane

If it was restylane, then it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Ask your doctor if he can do this for your if you are unhappy. If not, find another doctor.

Restylane and lumps

Restylane is a great product for facial injections.  If you have lumps from the injections 4 weeks later then I would return to the treating physician to have the Restylane dissolved with Vitrase.  If you are concerned I would consult a different physician who is board certified in dermatology with experience in facial injections for a consultation.  Please let me know what happens.

Lumps from Restylane

Your doctor shouldn't have gotten defensive. It's fine if a patient asks to see a box. And I put the sticker from the box right in each chart. This is pretty common practice. Now, ASSUMING you got Restylane, it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. There are many physicians close to you (look on this site) who use hyaluronidase. And quite frankly, in my opinion, anyone who does fillers should also be confident in using the dissolving agent to get them out. It bothers me when injectors say they don't know how to use hyaluronidase.
