What is a Safe Follow Up Filler to Evolence?

Since Evolence is no longer available, is it okay to have a different filler injected? I have a couple of little lumps that are only detected if I stretch the skin or touch it with my fingers, but you can't see anything looking at me straight on.
But certainly ask about Evolence
Many doctors who used Evolence and were happy with the results still have it on their shelves despite the J&J decision. In a town like Pittsburgh, I'll bet you could find it in someone's office.
Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are SAFE
Evolence is no longer sold because of a business decision NOT because it is a defective or harmful product.
Moreover, experienced Plastic surgeons and Dermatologist often use combination of different fillers to get the look they are after. Many would use Radiesse or Perlane in the deeper layers and Restylane and Juvederm in more superficial layers. You are NOT risking anything by switching to one of these FDA approved fillers.
