EXPERT Q&A

Q: I had my naso-labial folds injected with Dermalive quite some time ago. As you most likely know, it has the nasty reputation of creating hard lumps where it was injected. Is there way to either dissolve or remove these lumps?

What our experts say:

The lumps may need to be injected monthly with a stronger corticosteroid. I would also recommend getting a second opinion from a plastic surgeon because if the lumps are well circumscribed they may be easily removed; however, this is not usually the case.
