lip fillers are becoming increasingly popular due to the non-permanent and incredible results that can be achieved. Having the option to reverse the treatment is important, not just to make sure you get perfect results, but also to keep you safe. Currently, to inject dermal fillers and lip fillers, practitioners don’t need to have a medical degree or any relevant medical training, and there are no regulations about the environment fillers are administered in either! This has resulted in a wave of unregulated practitioners offering dermal fillers at lower prices than safe, regulated, doctor and nurse clinics. However, while these back-street practitioners can seem like good value, they are rarely safe and you might be putting yourself at risk.

This is an advanced procedure, in which a specially formulated enzyme called Hyalase is used to dissolve undesirable filler. This could be for many reasons, such as, unevenly placed, excessively over filled or incorrectly placed.
Overdone lips and cheeks
Practitioners who are inexperienced commonly create overfilled lips and cheeks, giving an uneven/asymmetrical appearance. Reversal/correction of dermal fillers can be a key step towards looking normal again.
Lumps and bumps
Lumps are possible after any filler injection, however they are not always visible and do not cause a problem and can be corrected by using an heat pack and a firm massage. Lumps are most commonly seen in the lips and around the mouth. In some cases dissolving the filler is the only way to make a troublesome lump go away. Always make sure you check the practitioners qualifications and experience before you decide to go ahead with the procedure, as this will minimise the risk of developing a complication.
Small injections of Halase are administered into the treated area, the enzyme acts within minutes to dissolve unwanted fillers and restore the original facial contours. The desired level of correction/reversal can usually be achieved by carefully monitoring the dose of the enzyme, with larger doses resulting in complete elimination of the filler from the injected site.
Typically the treatment only takes 15 minutes to complete. Most people feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately following their appointment. However, sometimes swelling of the area can occur, this usually goes down within 24 hours.
Most clients report minimal discomfort at the time of the injections, they state it stings a bit when the enzyme is first injected but this soon relieves. Lidocaine can be used to minimise this sensation, please ask your practitioner when booking your appointment if lidocaine is used.
This enzyme only works on (non permanent) HA fillers, most clients with HA fillers are able to have them reversed/corrected. However a patch test of the enzyme will be needed before having the treatment, this can be completed up to 24 hours before treatment. This will ensure you do not have an allergic reaction to the enzyme, as your safety is our main priority.
