Can blackhead extraction on filler site ruin the fillers?

I have gotten fillers on my nose, tip and between the eyebrows. I, however have blackheads that need to be extracted. Do I risk ruining the fillers if I extract them myself using a tool? I would need to press firmly against my skin to extract the blackheads.

This only depends on how long it has been since you had the dermal filler injections. If it has been less than two weeks I would recommend waiting. Extraction should not affect your filler results. Best Regards, Dr. Berger
