A couple of weeks later, Hecht went back to the office for an Exilis facial rejuvenation treatment around her eyes and cheeks. The procedure was meant to tighten her skin. However, she claims the procedure caused the original fillers to melt in her face.

“As a result of the manner and method by which Defendants performed the Exilis treatment her previously injected fillers below the surface of her skin melted causing issues that needed correction and deformity in her face,” the suit read.

Hecht said Armstrong told her to come back again to add more filler. However, the injections caused Hecht’s face to look “puffy and fat with her checks sticking out toward her head and ears and the contour of her face being dramatically uneven.”
