Abstract

Temporary injectable fillers have become so widely accepted within the cosmetic medical industry that permanent fillers with longer lasting effects are fast gaining popularity. Both patients and physicians alike have eagerly sought a product to minimize the inconvenience and cost of repeated injections. However, the fear is that the use of permanent fillers may lead to permanent problems. We describe here an in-office technique to remove permanent injectable fillers that achieves consistent, natural results with minimal risk of scarring.
