You can smooth out bumps after fillers but you most likely will not move the product if you massage it later. Best, Dr. Green
Massaging the treated areas after fillers will not likely cause any change in the placement of fillers such as restylane. Some physicians advocate it to smooth out bumps and lumps; however, vigorous massage my increase the risk of more bruising. Swelling may be masking some of the end results; however, excessive volume placed at the corner of the mouth can cause more sagging in some patients. Make a follow up in 2 weeks to evaluate your results.
Perlane is a hyaluronic acid derived gel
Thank you for sharing your concerns.
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm can be dissolved with Vitrase. I would wait 2 weeks and if you don't like the cosmetic outcome, seek dissolution by an expert.
Thank you for sharing your question. Restylane does not migrate, but massaging it will cause a local spread. See an oculofacial surgeon who is an experienced injector in a couple of weeks if you are still unhappy with the results. At this point, you are probably swollen and may look great in a week. Good luck.
Restylane and Swelling/Infection/Over Fill
Restylane is an HA filler and can be removed. I suggest waiting 1-2 weeks until you can see the actual result. If you are concerned please find an expert cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in filler. Best, Dr. Emer
Does restylane move around?
Restylane certainly can be massaged to help spread it around but it typically doesn't migrate far from the injection site. The only way to know if you altered things is to go see your injector. Best of luck!
