Reversed effects of dermal fillers
From 10 minutes
As part of our thorough consultations, it is The Facebible’s policy to ensure we help you understand the results that are achievable when having dermal fillers. We believe in less being more and administer the right amount of filler to be able to create an appearance that is subtly enhanced, rather than artificial and ‘over-filled’. However, it’s a common concern for patients to be unhappy with the results of dermal fillers; whether that’s due to having unrealistic expectations, uneven volume or from having too much filler applied. Many dermal filler products contain high concentrations of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that is effective in breaking down hyaluronic acid, and can therefore be used to safely dissolve dermal fillers.
Using Hyaluronidase to dissolve dermal fillers is an easy treatment that works rapidly. Following an examination of the previously treated area, approximately 1 – 4 injections are administered. Hyaluronidase quickly gets to work, triggering a process known as hydrolysis. The hyaluronic aid will then start to disperse which will happen steadily over a period of up to 2 weeks, depending on how much filler needs to be dissolved.
Just like other injectable treatments, The Facebible often recommends avoiding strenuous exercise (especially if it’s likely to increase blood flow in the face), heavy lifting and applying unnecessary pressure to the treated area. You may not be able to have any other treatments on the face (including facials) for around two weeks after the treatment.
Results can vary from person to person. For some people, an instant result is noticeable that continues to progress, whereas for others the outcome may be more gradual. We can usually control how much of the dermal filler is dissolved by applying the right dosage. Many patients wish to have dermal fillers reapplied when the previous product is fully dispersed, and The Facebible will be happy to book you in for a pre-treatment consultation.
It is often the results of a dermal filler treatment that leads to a man or woman requesting that they be dissolved. Being ‘overfilled’ and uneven contouring are common concerns which may mean you are suitable for this treatment. Before we can determine if this treatment will work effectively, we’ll need to know which type / brand of dermal filler has been used so that we’re sure Hyaluronidase is the right product to use.
Hyaluronidase is a naturally occurring enzyme that safely and effectively works to break down hyaluronic acid. It will work best on dermal fillers that contain a high concentration of this substance. Knowing there is a treatment that can help to reverse the results of dermal fillers, can also help to reassure the patient before having fillers applied.
The substance does not usually cause any pain or irritation as it is being administered. You may experience a little discomfort on application of the injection, but the needle will be very fine and we can use a numbing cream.
The side effects from this treatment will be very similar to the ones you may have experienced after the dermal filler procedure. Slight swelling, redness and bruising are common and are to be expected. They will typically subside within a couple of days.
This will depend on which area is to be treated and how much filler needs to be dissolved. We can discuss this when you come to the clinic for a consultation.
