Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for con
I am sorry to hear this, can I clarify when you had this injected?
Do you have a photo that demonstrates the problem?
Thank you. There is little you can do unfortunately. There is likely to be some swelling which can take a week or so to settle. Hylauronic Acid can be reversed with another injectable, but this is quite a drastic management unless there was a significant area of it being in the wrong place.
Yes, the majority of the swelling will take a few days to a week. Regarding the product, this can take 2-3 months to full degrade and absorb. When hyaluronidase is used to degrade the product faster, it can also degrade your natural soft tissue. So it is useful if you were to have lip fillers for example and had a rogue lump, but not useful for generalised use.
That is my pleasure, take care
