Benefits of Dissolving Filler

Avoid Migration
Vanish lumps and bumps

Emergency reversal
Prevent Overfilling
Undo poor placement

Hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers can be dissolved with a product called Hyaluronidase. This is an enzyme that can take up to two weeks to work. It functions by breaking down the bonds of HA, speeding up the body’s natural process. The injected filler will begin to soften and break down almost instantly. Individuals can seek filler dissolving for multiple reasons.

Lip fillers are the most dissolved cosmetic procedure in the industry. Clients often visit the clinic pursuing fuller, shapely, natural-looking lips. At Mollie Elise Aesthetics, we hold our treatments to an incredibly high standard. Practitioners may advise that dissolving fillers prior to filling is the best way to achieve your desired result. This is often necessary when a client is looking to achieve more volumes lips maintaining a flat side profile. At Mollie Elise Aesthetics, we offer safe treatments to an excellent standard. All products used are CE marked and have been personally tried and tested.

Often only one dissolve session is required. However, if the area has larger tough nodules or large areas of migration, further dissolve sessions may be advised. If the filler has built up over time and is older, it can crease scar tissue. Frequently, clients expect bigger lips to break down over long periods of time. However, if you have big, hard lips, the enzymes in the body may find it problematic to break down the filler. This can result in your natural hyaluronic acid being broken down as a substitute, which can amplify signs of ageing. We recommend that if you do have migrated filler, you tackle it as soon as possible.
