Filler Dissolving

Sometimes, dissolving your Filler is necessary to maintain long-term, natural-looking results. Filler migration, lumps/bumps, or other unprecedented complications may occur after multiple filler treatments. Filler Dissolving may be the best course of action in your aesthetic treatment plan.

Get The Facts

Filler Dissolving is completed with an injectable medication called Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is a naturally occurring enzyme in the body that breaks down and dissolves the main ingredient in Filler, hyaluronic acid. After a thorough facial assessment, your provider will assist and guide you with recommendations to keep your treatment results looking healthy and youthful.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ How soon after Filler Dissolving can I get more Filler?

Even though Hyaluronidase works within 24-48 hrs, it is best to wait at least 2-4 weeks to re-fill again as the treated tissue will still be healing.

+ Does everyone need Filler Dissolving eventually?

Every case is different, but if you are unsatisfied or notice your Filler appears to be aging you rather than rejuvenating your look, it may be time to dissolve it.

+ Does Filler Dissolving only affect the hyaluronic acid in the filler?

Filler Dissolving can temporarily affect your skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid, but your body quickly replenishes it.

+ Is there any downtime associated with filler dissolving treatment?

Most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately after a filler dissolving treatment. However, it’s common to experience mild swelling or bruising, so it’s advisable to avoid intense physical activity or exposure to excessive heat or cold immediately after the procedure.

+ How soon will I see the results of a filler dissolving treatment?

The results of a filler dissolving treatment are usually noticeable immediately after the procedure (1-2 days). However, it’s important to note that the full effect may take a few days to manifest as any residual swelling subsides and the dissolved filler is gradually eliminated by the body.

+ Is filler dissolving treatment painful?

The level of discomfort experienced during a filler dissolving treatment can vary from person to person. Some individuals may experience mild discomfort or a stinging sensation at the injection site.
