Bellafill gone wrong
It is hard to tell whats happening without pictures provided. I would advise you to schedule an appointment with experienced provider to determine the cause of your problem and possible options. While some consider Bellafill as permanent, it lasts around 5 years and it should not migrate or cause changes after 3 years. Good luck!
Artefill Forming Small Lumps All Over the Face
I am sorry that you are experiencing this problem. If your Artefill (now called Bellafill) was looking good for 3 years, any problems you are having will not likely be related to the filler. At 3 years your filler will be stable, does not migrate and is a very natural volume replacement. Without photos, it is difficult to tell, but it sounds like you may be having a dermatologic issue. I would suggest you see a dermatologist who experience with Bellafill to figure what is going on.
I hope that helps.
Improving Artefill with steroids and RF treatments
I suggest a filler expert who uses a significant amount of semi permanent and permanent fillers. Sometimes 5fu/steroid injections and RF treatments work to improve this area without any surgery needed. Best, Dr. Emer
