With an increase in the indications and number of filler injection cases, there has been an increase in the complications related to the treatment. A foreign body granuloma is a late/delayed-onset dermal filler complication. Despite its rare incidence, a filler granuloma can cause both cosmetic and psychological problems in patients, especially when it is chronic and refractory to treatment. We report a case of a patient with a chronic refractory filler granuloma that was successfully treated with a combination of an insulated monopolar radiofrequency microneedle device and a quantum molecular resonance technology-based device. We expect further developments in technology and medical devices for effective treatment of filler granulomas.
