Dissolving Fillers FAQ

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of dermal fillers – they can be used for so many different areas, are suitable for most of our clients, and have long-lasting results. But sometimes, sadly, people have a bad experience with their dermal fillers, or they get poor results from a different clinic. In those cases, filler dissolvers may help. Here’s a bit about the treatment.

How do filler dissolvers work?

They use an ingredient called hyaulronidase, which dissolves the hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers. This helps the body break it down and absorb it over a shorter period of time.

Is it painful?

Accounts differ, but as with any injection, redness, tenderness, bruising and some swelling may be experienced. This can usually be managed with over-the-counter painkillers and should pass with in a few days.

What are results like?

Whatever the treatment, results vary due to individual factors such as skin type and anatomy, so it’s not always possible to predict how filler dissolvers might work. It’s important to manage expectations if you have this type of treatment. In most cases, results are visible within around 48 hours.

Why have the treatment?

Dermal fillers are a fantastic transformative treatment – they can help shape and sculpt, minimise wrinkles and add volume to the lips and facial contours. However, some may not like their results, or may experience overfilling or lumpy skin afterwards, giving them cause for seeking out filler dissolvers.

What do you recommend?

We always stress the importance of ‘doing your homework’ when having any facial aesthetics procedure. Ensure the clinic and practitioners are registered, that an in-depth consultation is offered ahead of treatment so results can be more predictable, and don’t be pressured into a treatment you don’t want (or need!).

When having dermal filler treatment, you can trust our team, led by Emma J Lowe herself, a Registered General Nurse and Independent Prescriber.

What type of fillers should I have?

A consultation can help us identify what could work for you, and areas to target for dermal filler treatment. It might be cheek fillers, dermal fillers for lines and wrinkles, or even lip fillers.

How do I book in for dermal fillers?

We believe in doing things properly and informing our clients about every aspect of our treatment. If you’re interested in dermal fillers, we recommend booking a consultation with our skin doctors here in Inverness.
