When Should You Dissolve Your Fillers?

You’ve most likely heard of Botox before. This facial injection is widely known and deeply loved by those passionate about non-surgical cosmetic treatments and facial rejuvenation. Still, it can come in handy for more than just wrinkle reduction.

Let’s look at what makes up Botox, the many conditions it can treat, and why you may be interested in getting Botox treatments for yourself.

What Should I Do?

Before rushing into reversing the effects of your fillers, it is important to consult with a trained professional in aesthetic medicine. Read reviews, and take personal accounts into consideration. A professional with proven experience in the field as well as certifications to back this up can help you to feel more confident about your chosen treatments.

These highly-qualified professionals can help you in a number of ways. You may be set on dissolving your fillers, but your professional may also be able to help you achieve the results you desire with the fillers you already have. 

This professional may help to provide more symmetry to the face by balancing other areas with fillers, massaging the treatment area to remove any lumps or unevenness or use hyaluronidase enzymes to help dissolve or soften current fillers.

Remember that the effects of fillers are temporary but that treatments for reversal are also available.

If you are willing to wait a year or more, these unsatisfactory fillers will absorb into the body and naturally fade away. This can relieve some of your stress and tension following a less than satisfactory treatment. However, you may not be willing or even able to wait that long.  

What Does It Mean To Dissolve Your Fillers?

If you decide that the results of your fillers aren’t right for you, a trained specialist can help!

As we mentioned earlier, hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve specific fillers including Belotero, Restylane, and Juvéderm Voluma. This enzyme breaks down hyaluronic acid-based fillers with visible results in up to three days. Hyaluronidase breaks the molecular bonds of the hyaluronic acid, allowing it to more quickly and naturally absorb into the body.

Be aware that this isn’t an exact science. While the enzyme is effective at dissolving the fillers, you may lose more than you originally intended and need a new filler treatment later on. Give your hyaluronidase treatment time to work its magic, and then gauge your level of satisfaction. You can then discuss further treatment with your aesthetic specialist.

While allowing your fillers to fade naturally is traditionally recommended over dissolving your fillers, you can always discuss your options with your aesthetic specialist. If you are experiencing any pain, swelling, or heat in the treatment area, consult with a professional immediately.
