Elective Dissolve

In essence no, the solution of hyaluronidase can be mixed with lidocaine (a numbing agent) that helps to minimise discomfort and allow the procedure to continue readily. Although you may experience some swelling and soreness after the procedure.

Migration at the early stages can be relatively subtle however once in the later stages becomes much more prominent. Migration can occur for plenty of reasons ranging from the volume of filler injected, depth of injection, type of filler and over time. Elective dissolving can also be used to treat

  • Over filled lips
  • The filler has moved or spread to other areas
  • Lumps and unevenness of dermal filler result
  • Asymmetrical result
  • Allergic reaction: swelling
  • Late reaction: swelling lump at the filler areas which commonly see at tear through areas even a few months after the filler has been injected.
  • Infection

If you’d like more information on migration or think you may have a degree of filler migration or any of the above then book in for a face to face or online consultation where we can assess and discuss your options.

Only HA based fillers can be dissolved using hyaluronidase which is why they are the most widely used filler. The amount and density of filler will determine how readily the filler dissolves. Fillers with a high G prime (very dense) can require multiple appointments of dissolution to entirely remove their components.

In your consultation we will assess and discuss whats best for you and create a treatment plan.

Once injected the filler will start to dissolve within a few minutes and continue for up to two weeks,

Refilling is to be avoided for up to 2 to 3 weeks to allow for healing of the tissues and to prevent inadvertent dissolution of the new filler being placed.

Your needs and objectives will be discussed during your consultation and registration. An appropriate treatment plan will be developed and agreed with you and your plan will be monitored and adjusted in line with your progress. Once your treatment cycle has concluded, periodic treatments may be encouraged going forward.
