Fortunately, dissolving Dermal Fillers that contain Hyaluronic Acid, is relatively simple and means that having Dermal filler is a reversible non-surgical treatment. In order to dissolve the filler that has been injected, our expert Doctors use a substance called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid- the substance that many of our Dermal Fillers are made up of. When injected, the hyaluronidase speeds up the natural dissolving process of dermal filler in the area treated. Hyaluronidase is a synthetic form of a naturally-occuring enzyme within our bodies, this makes the risk of Dermal Filler Dissolving minimal.

You may experience slight swelling or bruising after having your dermal filler dissolved. This is completely normal and could last for 2-3 days, although if it persists it is important to contact your injector.
Indeed! After having your Dermal Filler dissolved, we typically advise waiting 2 weeks before having more filler injected. Many of our clients have visited for corrective treatment looking to remove and replace filler after having treatment elsewhere.
