Dermal fillers are some of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures available today. They do not require incisions, anesthesia or downtime. Dermal fillers are a temporary procedure that volumise your face, soften the fine lines and wrinkles, enhance the shape of your lips, improve the line of your chin, fill hollows under your eyes and instantly improve the way you look. The results can last months after the procedure before you need a new series of injections to maintain your look.
When performed by an experienced professional such as our injector Rebecca at FACE Cosmedical, dermal fillers are very safe and very effective treatment that produces dramatic results.You should be aware that not all clinics that offer dermal fillers are trained and experienced enough to do an adequate job. The increased demand for dermal fillers caused an increased number of clinics that offer them, not all of them qualified. Letting an inexperienced and poorly trained person perform dermal filler on your face increases your risk of having poor results or even developing complications after the procedure. Even if the injectors offers to correct the badly done job, they might not have enough experience or skills to do it. In addition, unprofessional and unscrupulous provider might completely ignore complains of a distressed client.
You should be aware that the cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers are not an exact science. Even in the most experienced and capable hands, you might not get the perfect results you expect. If you are not happy with the results or change your mind about the results you want from the treatment, let us know. At FACE Cosmedical our injector Rebecca uses advanced skills, long-term experience and artistic eye to offer you corrective procedure if you wish to revise or undo dermal fillers.
WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR WANTING DERMAL FILLER CORRECTION?
It is very rare that dermal fillers procedure causes serious complications. But, as with any other cosmetic procedure, there is possible risk. The risk level depends on the type of filler used, the skill of the person performing the procedure and the unique way every person’s body responds to the material injected as a filler. The most frequently encountered issues are:
- Excessive swelling
- Distorted or asymmetrical results
- Uneven texture
- Overfilling, which results in puffy, unnatural appearance
- Underfilling, resulting in no visible results
Patients might also ask for filler correction if they develop an infection, allergic reaction, granuloma or blocked blood vessel. Fortunately, most clients develop no adverse effects. Nevertheless, some of them decide after the procedure that fillers are not right for them or just wish to improve the results.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS IF I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS?
If you are not satisfied with the results of dermal filler injections, skilled professional such as our injector Rebecca might be able to make appropriate corrections or revise the procedure. Your options for this depend on the nature and severity of the problem as well as on the type of filler used. If that is the case, Rebecca will suggest to you options such as:
WAITSome kinds of dermal fillers have temporary effects. Eventually, such fillers will break down and be absorbed by the body. While it might take some time, if you are willing to wait you might avoid having more aggressive or invasive correction procedure.
Some fillers can be removed, completely or partially, using an enzyme hyaluronidase. When the enzyme is injected into the treatment area, it dissolves the filler particles almost immediately, so you do not have to wait for the filler to dissolve naturally, which can take months.
Injecting new filler into the right area may improve unsatisfactory results, if it is done by a skilled professional with a good esthetic eye such as our injector Rebecca. The new, additional filler can reshape the original results, producing better outcome. This is less drastic option since it does not mean staring over or replacing the filler completely.
Some types of dermal fillers are designed to last longer and be more durable, what makes them more difficult to revise. In that case, the product must be allowed to break down naturally or to be removed surgically.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE CORRECTED?
Dermal fillers can be injected in different parts of face. The same areas that can be treated can also be revised if the results are not as desired:
- Upper eyelids
- Tears troughs under eyes
- Nasolabial folds/smile lines
HOW MANY DERMAL FILLER REVISION TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
In most cases, a single revision treatment is sufficient to achieve desired results. If the original procedure involved a large amount of product, or it has been injected into a particularly deep layer of the skin, it might be necessary to perform additional corrections. Our injector Rebecca at FACE Cosmedical will discuss the recommended treatment plan with you during the initial consultation. If you have undertaken dissolution procedure with enzyme hyaluronidase, you will be able to receive new dermal filler injections at later date, if desired. Hyaluronidase and fillers cannot be injected at the same time since the enzyme in the body will affect the new fillers. It is best to allow the treated area to settle completely before contemplating a new filler treatment.
HOW CAN I REDUCE THE RISK OF NEEDING A REVISION OF DERMAL FILLER PROCEDURE?
For most clients, dermal filler repair is a very effective option. The ideal filler treatment does not require any correction. But, the decision to undergo any such treatment should not be taken lightly. Dermal filler injections are minimally invasive procedure. Nevertheless, they should be undertaken with the same level of seriousness and good judgment as any surgery.
The most important decision in ensuring a safe and successful dermal filler experience is to choose a reputable, highly trained and experienced professional. Before committing to a certain provider, check their qualifications and experience in performing dermal filling. Look at the ‘before and after’ photos on their website or in their office, to make sure their esthetics match yours. In great part, the success of the procedure will depend on the skill, technique and esthetic eye of your provider.
