Is it possible for Restylane to migrate from upper lip to the area just above lip? (Skin between lip and nose) (photos)

Filler Migration is Possible

Yes fillers can migrate but they can also swell.  If you are unhappy 2 weeks after injection reverse the filler.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Unfortunately, the filler does not migrate.  It is completely injector dependent.  Please follow up with your provider for a reevaluation.  This can be improved upon.  Hope this helps.

Filler migration

Filler migration is unlikely. It is probably more of an injection technique rather than migration.  Best of luck.

Migration of filler?

Thank you for sharing your question and posting your photo. It is not likely that the filler migrated. It was probably injected superior to the lip. If the results are not acceptable to you, Vitrase can be injected in order to dissolve the product.  Good luck,
