Dermal filler injections are amongst the most popular choices for restoring facial volume and reducing signs of aging without surgery. However, in some instances, patients may be unhappy with the results of their dermal fillers because of suboptimal technique or filler choices. Filler correction in Beverly Hills is possible for injections composed of hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible substance responsible for maintaining moisture and volume in the skin.
Other dermal filler injections containing non-biocompatible products, like silicone, are not correctable in the same manner but may be adjusted with additional treatments. If you are unhappy with the results of your hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections, know that you have options. Treatment is quick, and results may begin to take effect right away. Reach out to our office today to see if filler correction is a viable option for you.
Signs You May Need Dermal Filler Correction
Filler correction patients in Beverly Hills typically seek treatment to correct issues stemming from previous dermal filler injections. There are a few reasons why patients may dislike the results of their dermal fillers, such as the creation of visible lumps or bumps, asymmetry, puffiness, unnatural appearing contours, and other unbalanced facial features. A common problem is over-filled cheeks and lips that may look unnatural and disproportionate to other facial features and adversely affect one’s appearance.
Other cosmetic concerns that may require filler correction treatments include uneven volume restoration throughout the face, such as irregular placement, or failure to address pre-existing asymmetry. If you are unhappy with your previous hyaluronic acid-based filler results, dermal filler correction might be the answer.
During your consultation, Dr. Anita Patel will discuss your medical history with you and determine if dermal filler correction is the right choice to address your goals and desires. The consult is where you will discuss your goals and concerns with your prior injections, and Dr. Patel can answer any questions you might have about the corrective procedure.
Filler correction treatments in Beverly Hills involve dissolving hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers with enzyme injections containing hyaluronidase. After receiving these injections, the enzymes typically begin to work right away, but may take a week or two to show the full effects of the single injection. Repeat injections may be desired or beneficial.
During the first few of days post-treatment, it is best to avoid high-impact activities, such as intense physical movements and exercise. Like initial dermal filler injections, a correction procedure involving injections poses minor side effects such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort at injection sites. It may take several days for injection sites and side effects to heal entirely, but they should not disrupt patients from returning to their typical routine.
Schedule Your Consultation for Dermal Filler Correction in Beverly Hills
Over the last decade, dermal fillers have become a popular resource to combat the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Yet, some individuals may dislike their results and decide to reverse their enhancements by undergoing dermal filler correction treatments. For example, improper or suboptimal injections of dermal fillers may result in an imbalance of your facial symmetry and proportions, adversely impacting your overall appearance, and potentially making one look older. It does not have to be this way.
Correction is straightforward and entails careful injections that contain products to counteract the initial hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Since procedures for filler correction in Beverly Hills depend on multiple factors regarding your initial treatment and specific anatomy, it is important to schedule an appointment where you can consult with Dr. Anita Patel about your cosmetic concerns, eligibility for treatment, and the best course of action.
