Dermal Filler Dissolving Information

Filler Dissolving Overview

Celebrity culture has both popularised and demonised fillers, and many people now mistakenly associate fillers with overly plumped, pillowy faces, 'trout pouts' and 'duck lips' There is no denying the impact the Kardashian's have had on the use of dermal fillers. If you have had filler treatments and are no longer happy with how they look. Or you have been to a practitioner who was maybe not so

adequately trained and you have lumps of nodules, or filler migration, you may wish to dissolve your filler.

In the correct, highly-skilled, highly-qualified hands, this can be done using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, or Hyalase, which is a prescription-only medicine. This enzyme is injected where the filler has been placed and dissolves it, leaving the area free of hyaluronic acid filler.

If you wish to have the area re-filled, you would need to wait at least two weeks before having further filler placed in the area treated with hyaluronidase.

Hyalase/hyaluronidase is a prescription-only medicine. The potential side-effects and risks of filler dissolving treatments can be significant. It is important that you see a medical practitioner for filler dissolving treatments. This only works for hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
