Dermal fillers, including lip fillers and cheek fillers, are an effective and popular option for transforming the facial structure. Used to add volume, structure and shape, dermal fillers can be very versatile. But these need to be injected by a professional team to avoid a range of potential negative results, that can lead to health complication, or require correctional treatment to reverse the results.
What are the most common dermal filler correction options?
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatment options available, and as such, they are also one of the most common to be administered by DIY, or by untrained individuals outside of a clinical setting. This means that correcting and even removing dermal fillers that have gone wrong is something that professional practitioners now provide, along with the high quality dermal fillers. But what are the most common dermal filler correction options? Well, these include:
- Correcting lumpy filler
- Correcting asymmetrical filler
- Correcting overfilled areas
- Correcting lumpy dermal fillers
When dermal fillers are incorrectly administered into the wrong layer of the skin, or too much is used in one space, lumps and bumps are a common result. Small lumps and bumps that are firm to the touch can have a negative result on your overall appearance, and ruin the results you were hoping for. Thankfully with expert help these lumps of filler can be easily dissolved using hyaluronidase.
Correcting asymmetrical dermal fillers
Another common side effect of incorrectly applied dermal filler is an asymmetrical result, with one part of the filled area being larger or more overfilled than the other. This is most common with lip fillers, but chin and cheek fillers can also face the same result. Removing the filler completely from both sides is one of the most effective ways of correcting this, but you could consider simply reducing the filler in the area that is too large. This is more complicated but if you are otherwise happy with the results, it can be a good option.
Correcting overfilled areas
Much like an asymmetrical result, dermal fillers administered by someone who isn’t a professional, can end up being overfilled in one area, or altogether. The overfilled effect is one of the results that is most unwanted, and causes the most embarrassment. However some simple injections of hyaluronidase can easily dissolve the excess filler, or all of the filler completely, depending on your requirements.
