At The Facebible we use the term ‘unwanted filler’ when a patient comes to our clinic feeling unhappy with the results of their dermal filler treatment. Dermal fillers are very versatile and can be used to volumise the skin in a wide range of areas on the face and body, including: cheeks, lips, jawline, neck, decolletage and hands, with specific filler products also suitable for use on the legs, arms, hips and buttocks.
When a treatment causes the condition we refer to as unwanted filler, it is often the case that the treatment has failed to meet the patients expectations; causing the appearance to look unnaturally full, asymmetric (not evenly distributed on both sides) or from not having settled in the place it was administered (known as ‘filler migration’).
The Facebible ensures all pre-treatment consultations explain the procedure in full, including the results that can be achieved. We feel this is extremely important, especially when considering a dermal filler treatment, and it’s important for patients to understand that a little filler can go a long way. In many cases what seems like a tiny amount of filler can actually produce noticeable results, and using too much filler can then cause the treated area to become overfilled and look unnatural. The brand that is used can also play a part in the final outcome, and it is often found that clinics who charge less for their treatments, also use cheaper branded products. This can affect the quality of the result, often leading to a lumpy / uneven appearance or the filler shifting in position. The treatment itself usually addresses each side of the face (or both hands), and should approach each side individually. The right amount of filler at each injection point may differ slightly, but this is to ensure a more symmetrical result is produced.
Typically, our patients are pleased with the results of their dermal filler treatment, and those who visit our clinic with unwanted filler have usually had an unsatisfactory treatment somewhere else.
If the unwanted dermal filler is a brand that uses a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (and most do these days), we can administer Hyaluronidase – an injectable substance that dissolves the filler. This treatment may take a couple of weeks to completely disperse the filler, when our highly skilled clinicians will gladly consider re-applying the filler treatment.
