Here is a case of a patient who presented to our Sydney clinic. She had been treated by another clinic 4 months ago.
She had botched tear trough filler. There was lumpiness, Tyndall effect (the blue discolouration), and the troughs were in general overfilled.
This patient was very distressed, obviously. She had gone to have a treatment to improve her under eyes, but they were much worse than when she started.
She had tried massaging with minimal results
We usually recommend that the patient gives the previous doctor an opportunity to correct their work, but in this case, the patient had lost trust and did not want to go back to the previous injector.
We treated the patient with the dissolving product, called Hyalase, and then refilled her.
Usually we like to take this process slowly and gradually, but the patient had an important event coming up and we were very motivated to get her troughs ready for it. We were able to remove the lumpy product and refill and get her ready for her event. See her results below 🙂
