Had Ultra Plus in lips. After swelling went down, looks like there’s no filler. Possible that fillers don’t work on some people?

I went back and we added a syringe of Restylane Silk. Again, after swelling, the result was barely noticeable. At this point, they added yet another syringe of Restylane Defyne recommended by the rep, after a week, my lips are back to normal. There is Barely a Subtle Difference from before I had any fillers. After 3 full syringes, it should be more than subtle. What’s the deal?

No Apparant Difference after Lip Injection

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question! What you are experiencing appears to be out of ordinary. Fillers you have received are all based on hyaluronic acid – a gel that is naturally present in the skin – so one would assume that if your body is somehow breaking it down very quickly, it should be doing the same to your own natural hyaluronic acid as well. Of course not all fillers are created equally, and for many patients specially those who want to see fuller lips with longer lasting results, I usually recommend Voluma. Also with some fillers such as Restylane Silk, the results might be more subtle, so it would be best to do another follow up with your doctor and do an accurate reassessment including comparison of before and after pictures. I hope it helps and good luck!
