Dermal Filler Dissolver
If you’re not happy with your dermal filler, getting a filler dissolver injection can solve your problems. This corrective treatment can be incredibly helpful in a lot of situations. If your filler was misapplied, has migrated, or simply doesn’t look the way you hoped it would, we’re here to help you fix it.
Are Filler Dissolving Treatments Safe?
Yes! The dermal filler dissolver we use is made of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Much like hyaluronic acid, hyaluronidase exists in the body naturally. It metabolizes hyaluronic acid, which is the material most modern fillers are made of.
As with all things in life, there is a very small risk of allergy, which may lead to redness and swelling immediately after the injection. It’s quite rare, but we can conduct a patch test if you think you may be at risk.
The Process of Dissolving Filler
The process of dissolving your filler is not too complex, but we do take a few necessary precautions. Prior to your appointment, we will have you fill out paperwork to ensure you’re a safe candidate for hyaluronidase.
Then, your nurse will conduct a consultation and analysis to fully understand your dermal filler history and your desired outcome. We’ll let you know approximately how many vials of dissolver will be required and advise you as to whether you’ll need a follow-up appointment.
Then, once you’re ready, we will sanitize the treatment area. Then, we’ll carefully inject the filler dissolver in a few different spots, depending on the area being treated. The injection is quick and not particularly painful.
Once we’re done injecting, we’ll gently massage the area that has been injected to make sure the dissolver spreads evenly and starts to work.
For 14 days before your appointment, you cannot take antibiotics, tretinoin (Retin-A), Aspirin, iron (in any form) or blood-thinning medications
For two to three days following treatment, avoid intense exercise, hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, and other activities in heated environments.
How Long Does Filler Dissolver Take To Work?
The dissolver starts to work almost immediately, and will usually dissolve most filler within 2 to 3 days. You may experience a bit of swelling or bruising immediately after your injection, but over the course of a few weeks it’ll go down, and you’ll be able to see your final results.
Aftercare for Filler Dissolver
Filler dissolver is a simple procedure that doesn’t require too much aftercare. In fact, after your treatment, you’ll be able to return to your normal life!
The most important part of aftercare is the first few hours when you need to keep your treated area clean and free from makeup. If you do experience a bit of swelling or pain, you can apply a cool compress to calm the area. Otherwise, avoid touching the area too much or applying pressure. Before you know it, things will be back to normal.
