Las Vegas – At the fall Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), Shelia Anderson, RN, MSN, CANS, said that the process of filler degradation over time remains somewhat mysterious. She is a Seattle-based aesthetic nurse.
Ms. Anderson has asked filler manufacturers if they’ve ever studied what happens to fillers as they break down over time – where do they go and how does the body excrete them? “Nobody is looking at that. But I know from treating myself, I have had filler that I have placed deep in the cheek – the zygomatic major and minor muscles are very strong.” When these muscles squeeze over time on the area where the filler was injected, “It’s going to move to an area of lower concentration. I have seen product migrate as the product ages and starts to degrade.”
