Which Filler is Most Likely to Migrate?

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. Migration of fillers is very rare, but its likelihood increases when refills are performed by an inexperienced or unskilled injector. With the increasing popularity of facial fillers over the past decade, there have been more clinics offering cosmetic injectables; however, this has led to a large number of poorly trained and unprofessional professionals performing injections. In my experience, Restylane is less likely to migrate than Juvederm.

This is due to its more granular nature, meaning it spreads less once it is injected into the skin. This may be beneficial when injected into certain areas, such as the lips, but greater extensibility may be desired when working with other areas.

Juvederm migration

is exactly what it sounds like - in rare cases, facial fillers may move from their original injection site to another area on the face. We can't stress enough how important it is to know who you are allowing to carry out your procedure. With the explosion in popularity of lip fillers, there have never been more options in clinics offering aesthetic treatments.

However, this is not always good. It has led to a huge increase in the number of undertrained and unprofessional professionals who want to make money quickly without regard to the quality of service. Migration of lip filler can occur as a result of the doctor misadministering fillers. There is no need to be medically trained to administer lip fillers in the UK. By choosing someone who is, you will drastically reduce your chances of your fillers migrating somewhere else.

That's why it's so important to research and only go with fully insured and licensed professionals with a proven track record in fillers and aesthetics. While a reputable and reputable clinic may not be the cheapest, can you honestly afford to take a risk with someone else?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.

Filler injections may not be properly separated by an unskilled professional, which could cause areas of skin to fill up too quickly or too much. In aesthetic terms, migration refers to the process by which lip filling spreads (or migrates) to areas of the body for which it is not intended and leaves patients with a new source of embarrassment and less than spectacular results. Unfortunately, in today's industry, it is known that some dermal fillers used, either because of the cost of the injector or brand advertising, cause some problems for months or years after treatment. It turns out that backfill migration, in fact, is not as common as a side effect or as important as it seems on social media platforms. Generally speaking, fillers with a higher G' will be firmer and may add more lift, while fillers with a lower G' will be softer and more suitable for treating delicate areas. We also see patients who have been added too much filler under the eyes, which can lead to the appearance of lumps since the skin in this area is exceptionally thin. Hyaluronic acid polymer chains can vary greatly in length (measured by molecular weight) and these chains are cross-linked to form gels, which are what make up hyaluronic fillers that are injected into the face.

The best way to avoid Juvederm migration is to choose a professional and highly qualified beautician who has years of experience applying facial fillers such as Juvederm. Finally, sometimes migration can be due to the way the body has decided to break down the filling over time. Most dermal filler products will consist of HA cross-linked with a chemical such as 1,4-butanedioldiglycidyl ether (BDDE) for Restylane, Belotero and Juvéderm, divinyl sulfone (DVX) for Hylaform, 1,2,7,8-diepoxyoctane (DEO) for Puragen, and suspended in a physiological or phosphate-buffered solution. Absolutely, you can expect different results from different products within various filler brands - that is their purpose. While dermal fillers can technically migrate from any injection site, they are more likely to occur around the lips or under the eyes. Injecting the filler too quickly can put excessive pressure on the treatment area, increasing its likelihood of migration.
