While it is possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is extremely rare and can be avoided by choosing a qualified injector. Although migration of fillers is very rare, its likelihood increases when refills are performed by an inexperienced or unskilled injector. Filler migration is defined as the process of spreading or “migrating” the dermal filler to another area beyond the injection site. While migration is mostly spoken in terms of lip fillers, migration can also occur anywhere the filler is injected.
This includes the lacrimal canal, the jawline, and also the cheeks. The Juvederm migration is exactly what it seems. In rare cases, facial fillers such as Juvederm may migrate to another site on the face a few days after the injection. This occurs when the filler moves before it has fully adhered to the facial tissue.
That's why it's important to only get facial fillers from a qualified, trained, certified and experienced facial filler provider, such as Dr. Smoking can also affect the longevity of the filler due to constant muscle contraction and lip pursing. Finally, sometimes migration can be due to the way the body has decided to break down the filling over time. Remember that it is common for some swelling to occur after filler injections up to 2 weeks after the injection.
After referring her for an MRI to Dr. Mobin Master, it was clear that there was still dermal filler present in the lower and upper lip. In the first few months after receiving the dermal filler, it will slowly begin to degrade, but the visible results will remain the same because fillers absorb water. Using this tool allows us to see exactly where the dermal filler is present on the lips, cheeks and eye areas.
Dr. Gavin Chan's groundbreaking revelations over the past 12 months have changed the way all aesthetic doctors and nurses in his clinics inject dermal fillers. In some very rare cases, the migration of the filler may be due to another, unrelated disease in the patient's body. For the past 15 years, Dr.
Gavin Chan (MBBS, cosmetic doctor, liposuctionist) and his team of highly trained and experienced cosmetic doctors and aesthetic nurses have been using dermal fillers on patients to transform their faces. Looking at your patient's MRI scans, you now believe that a minimalist approach to injecting dermal fillers creates the best results. In the past year, Dr. Gavin Chan has discovered something about dermal fillers that has “impressed” him with regard to the longevity of the filler.
He warns that the Cosmetic Medicine industry may be driven purely by money and profit making, which can result in patients being unconsciously coerced to receive more dermal filler treatments. This very rare type of migration, due to illness, is more likely to occur months or even years after the facial filler was injected and is located deep in the dermal layers, even close to the bone.
