Restylane filler with abnormalities? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 8
A little too superficial
So i think the restylane is a little too near the skin. Alas the only solution is to have it dissolved and to start again under the cheek fat pads.
Online there are a few videos of how effective hyaluronidase can be in dissolving filler in a matter of minutes on a desk top. A couple of days in the body is about as much time as it needs.
Hope that helps
Puffy lower lids after Restylane injections
You're asking about a pretty common problem that's been reported in the literature. I agree with continued conservative reduction of the filler with hyaluronidase as your doctor is doing. Once the fullness has resolved then you may consider starting over but do so conservatively. I prefer to do one syringe split between both lower lids in one visit and then have you return in a month. If there is still a need for more filler(which you may not need) then it can be given then.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
Problems after filler injection into the tear trough area
Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. I'm sorry you did not get the result you had hoped for. I would continue with the hyaluronidase injections until the product is completed dissolved, or the appearance improves to your liking. I would then start from scratch with a new injector. In order to determine the best treatment plan for you, I recommend an in-person consultation with an expert. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

I would recommend having more of the product dissolved under the eyes. In the future consider Belotero which causes less Tyndall effect. Please consult an expert at these delicate under eye injections. Best, Dr. Green

I agree with the previous comment. Your injector is correcting things appropriately - dissolving with the hyaluronidase slowly. Proceeding with caution while injecting or dissolving product is always the right way to go. At this point I would suggest waiting a few days after the first round of injections for dissolution, and contacting the office of your injector one more time such that they can continue to correct your issues. Best of luck.
