Time: Sorry that you had a bad experience; choose your cosmetic artist well. Fortunately, hla facial fillers have a temporary effect.

I was given hyaluronidase injections for lumpy juvederm . The areas are still hard and lumpy but have gone down a little. Do i need more?

I would wait: Without seeing or feeling it, i cannot confidently say you would need more or not. After filler injections (juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) or perlane), feeling some lumpiness is common, but it should not be visible. If it is not visible, leave it alone. If it is visible, massaging it gently 30 sec twice daily helps to soften it. Also, fillers are also firm for 1-2 weeks after injecting, then they soften. ...Read more
