What Is Filler Dissolving?
To dissolve filler, we use a product that can be used to quickly break down dermal filler safely and comfortably.
We use a dissolving solution called Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme which breaks down hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps to hold skin and connective tissue together, but it is also the main ingredient in many dermal fillers on the UK market.
Hyaluronidase helps to spread other medicines which are injected under the skin or into muscles by breaking down hyaluronic acid. In situations where blood or excess fluid has built up between cells, hyaluronidase can help to increase the absorption of blood and fluid back into cells.
The treatment works by injecting hyaluronidase into the lips, which is an enzyme that exists naturally in your body already. When you get fillers normally, low levels of naturally occurring hyaluronidase are the reason they break down over time. If you need your fillers dissolved and removed more quickly, we simply inject safe, more concentrated doses of hyaluronidase to break down the hyaluronic acid in the filler formula, which is then carried away by your body’s own natural systems.
We highly recommends that you should only ever have filler treatment if you know the clinic has hyaluronidase on hand in case of emergencies.
