This is done only for hyaluronic acid-based filler with an enzyme called hyaluronidase (aka hyalase). This may be required for a vascular occlusion or if there are lumps, in the event of a reaction (delayed or immediate) or an infection. We will dissolve other clinicians work if necessary, but we would generally advise that you speak with your original clinician where possible, to get the correction from them. This is especially the case where the procedure has not gone to plan, and you are not happy with the result.

Dissolving Fillers Treatment by London and Surrey Aesthetic Clinic
Dermal fillers are a popular way to rejuvenate the face and hands, but sometimes the results are not what patients had hoped for. In these cases, dissolving fillers offer a way to reverse the effects of dermal fillers.
At the London and Surrey Aesthetic clinic in Crystal Palace, London, our team offers dissolving fillers to help our clients achieve the desired results.
Reasons for Dissolving Fillers
There are many reasons why patients may choose to dissolve their dermal fillers. Some people may be unhappy with the amount of filler injected or the placement of the injection.
Others may experience side-effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, bumps, tenderness or unevenness.
In some cases, dermal fillers can cause complications like infection, nodules, granulomas or trigger an allergic reaction.
The Dissolving Fillers Process
The dissolving fillers process involves injecting an enzyme into the area where the dermal filler was originally injected. The enzyme, hyaluronidase, works to break down the filler, allowing the body to absorb it naturally. The process typically takes around 30 minutes, and patients may experience some discomfort, swelling or redness at the injection site. In order to minimize the risks and ensure safety, a patch test will be performed. The downtime is minimal, and makeup can be applied immediately after the session.
Types of Fillers that can be Dissolved
At the London and Surrey Aesthetic clinic, our team offers dissolving fillers for a range of dermal fillers, which are hyaluronic acid based.
Results and Risks
Results from dissolving fillers are usually seen within 24 to 48 hours, with full results visible in a week or two. As with any injection, there are some risks and side-effects associated with the treatment, such as swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness. The risk of complications is minimal, and our team will thoroughly assess each patient’s suitability for the treatment and discuss any questions or concerns they may have.
Downtime and Aftercare
Dissolving filler treatments typically have minimal downtime, with patients able to return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. It is important however to avoid wearing cosmetic products like makeup for at least 6-12 hours after the injections. Do not touch the area especially if you haven’t washed your hands – we carry a lot of germs on our hands.
No heat should be used for 48 hours and that includes drinking hot drinks as well as going into steam rooms or saunas. Heat can increase the risk of bruising and cause more swelling. High intensity exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours, and alcohol should also be avoided for 24 hours too, as these increase the risk of bruising and of course increases heat. Always use sunscreen after having dissolving treatment and avoid UV light for 48 hours after treatment.
Costs of Dissolving Dermal Fillers
The cost of dissolving fillers treatment will vary depending on the amount of filler injected, the number of sessions required, and the type of filler used. Patients can contact our clinic to receive a price estimate, and we accept a range of payment options.
