Are you on the fence about getting fillers because you’re not sure if you would love your results? Is the fear of overly plumped fillers or a lopsided look preventing you from enhancing your features? Don’t worry, the process can always be reversed if needed!
Fillers or dermal fillers have been used as beauty enhancements for many years and are a great way to look young and refreshed without downtime or the risks of surgery. Common facial fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma or Restylane can be used for many areas of the face and all contain hyaluronic acid gels which mimic our body’s own production! This is why fillers are safe to inject and dissolve when treated by skilled professionals.
While most fillers are temporary (most last somewhere between 6 months and 2 years depending on the filler) and most clients are very happy with their results, reversing fillers is as simple as receiving them. A simple injection is placed at the area of concern just like a regular filler injection, which then takes about 24-48 hours to dissolve the filler. In this injection is a compound called hyaluronidase, which our body also naturally produces! Stars such as Courtney Cox and Kylie Jenner have even admitted to having their facial fillers dissolved with hyaluronidase.
It is also very important that you see an experienced Medical Provider who can assess the area and see if dissolving the filler is necessary or if there is another way to correct the issue. At Revive Med Spa in San Diego, our providers are highly trained and can enhance many areas of the face with filler in a subtle and beautiful way. They are also trained in dissolving filler and educating the client on the process.
What is hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase is a protein enzyme that is found in bone marrow and is typically used to break down hyaluronic acid found in dermal fillers. The combination of hyaluronidase and hyaluronic acid split the HA molecules apart encouraging a boost in the body’s natural cell production which results in dissolving the filler.
Are the results immediate?
Most individuals will see immediate results with this treatment. Once the filler and hyaluronidase meet, the process begins and the filler will start to dissolve, with full results after 48 hours. Don’t be discouraged if you still look plump, you may experience swelling. Just like any other injection, swelling is always a possibility but should disappear within the next couple of days.
Is reversing fillers a common treatment?
Reversing fillers is not as common as injecting but is definitely a safe treatment when injected by a licensed professional. It is also common for your injector to inject on a small test site to ensure that you are not allergic to the hyaluronidase before performing the treatment. Numbing is applied and the treatment is just as simple as a filler appointment.
How do I know if fillers are right for me?
Facial fillers are a great way to enhance natural features and balance areas of concern. It is always beneficial to consult with a medical provider to determine the best treatment plan that is personalized for you!
