Can lip fillers be dissolved early?

While lip fillers aren’t permanent, they do last for anywhere between 3 and 18 months. If you are not entirely happy with your dermal fillers, you want to remove them early, or you want them reduced due to incorrect initial application, you may be happy to know that lip fillers can be dissolved early. However, this will depend on the type of filler used and you will need to work with a professional aesthetic treatment team to ensure this is implemented safely and effectively.

So, how can lip fillers be dissolved early?

Lip fillers can be dissolved early, but only if these are a particular type of filler. Lip fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid can all be safely dissolved, including leading names like Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero. This is because hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body, mainly in connective tissue, and this is used up by the body over time. This process can be sped up through injections of hyaluronidase near the filler site. This is an enzyme that can break down the lip filler and allow your body to process this naturally, just at a much faster rate. This is a very safe practice, especially when implemented by a professional aesthetic practitioner, and in fact, hyaluronidase has been used effectively for this purpose for almost 20 years!

How long do lip fillers take to dissolve?

While the hyaluronidase injections will begin to have an impact immediately, every person’s body chemistry is different and as such not everyone will notice results at the same time or rate. In addition, different brand names of the hyaluronic acid lip fillers may actually degrade at a different rate too. The amount of filler in one area can also impact the speed of the results as well. In general, results will start to be noticeable and visible within just a few days, but some people and certain circumstances may require repeat injections.

One thing to be aware of is that for a short temporary time period after the injections to dissolve the lip filler, your lips may appear slightly larger or fuller due to the extra volume from the dissolving fluid, or from mild swelling near the injection site.

What are the benefits of choosing a professional team to dissolve your lip fillers?

There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing a professional aesthetic practitioner when thinking about dissolving your lip fillers early, and these include:

Ensuring the right results- a qualified registered professional, like our staff here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, are fully trained in all manner of aesthetic practices, and this means that you can be sure of the right results. For example, when dissolving lip filler, or dermal filler from any facial area, it is essential that the volume of hyaluronidase and the injection site are both taken into account. Too much hyaluronidase can erode not only the hyaluronic acid in the fillers, but also your own store of hyaluronic acid. A professional can be sure to avoid this issue.

Protection from allergy- hyaluronidase is something that can cause an allergic reaction, although this is incredibly rare. A professional will start with a very small amount and will be able to recognise the signs of allergy, and alter the course of action appropriately.
