Hyaluronidase Dermal Filler Dissolver

If you want to reverse your hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler injections, you might have options. A great deal will depend on your previous treatment and your desired results.

Dermal Filler "Melting" Options

At the Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic, we sometimes receive requests from patients who want to reverse their dermal filler results. This can come up for a variety of reasons, and we often see patients who initially received their filler injections at a different clinic.

In cases where hyaluronic-acid based fillers, such as Juvederm or Voluma, were used for the initial injections, it is possible to dissolve or “melt” your filler injection. In order to accomplish this, we use a product called hyaluronidase, which is formulated specifically to dissolve the hyaluronic-acid based molecule chains that form the base for many injectable fillers.

Every hyaluronidase or filler dissolution treatment requires individualized consultation. If you did not receive your initial dermal filler injection from Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic, there will be a $50 fee; this consultation is essential to properly assess your desired treatment.

How Long Does it Take Filler Dissolver to Work?

In most cases, your filler dissolution treatment will begin working almost immediately. You should be able to see your results before you leave our office. Once the consultation is complete, the actual treatment usually proceeds quite quickly. However, the hyaluronidase will remain in effect for roughly 24 hours, so patients may not receive additional dermal filler injection treatments on the same day that they undergo filler dissolution procedures.

Common Motivations for Filler Dissolution

The vast majority of patients are thrilled with the results from their dermal filler injections. However, occasionally, there are reasons why one may want to reverse their results. Common reasons why patients might seek to reverse a filler result can include:

  • The patient received too large a dosage or feels “overfilled.” We see this most often in patients who did not receive their initial dermal filler treatment at Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic.
  • Uncommonly, patients can experience complications from their injections that require the filler to be dissolved.
  • Patients may not be satisfied with the appearance of their dermal filler results. This is relatively uncommon, and we most often see this in patients who did not receive their initial filler injection at Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic.

A patient’s motivation for seeking out filler dissolution treatment can also consist of a variety of factors. During your consultation with our team at Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic, you’ll be able to thoroughly discuss your motivations and your desired final outcome so we can determine the best path forward.

How Does Hyaluronidase Work?

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are commonly used because they produce very natural looking results and, as these compounds are often found naturally in the body, and have a low incidence of allergic reactions. One of the other benefits of these fillers is that they are reversible.

Hyaluronidase (sometimes known as hyaluronan) is a special enzyme that can quickly break down the bonds that hold hyaluronic acid-based molecules together. In effect, these injections can rapidly dissolve dermal filler results. Hyaluronidase is formulated to leave natural hyaluronic acid untouched, targeting only the synthetic forms of the compound found in dermal fillers.

In most cases, hyaluronidase injections will be targeted in those areas where your dermal fillers are causing the most significant problems. The exact nature of the treatment will vary depending on your particular situation.

As with all medical procedures, filler melting is not an exact science and it comes with its own set of risks. Be sure to carefully discuss the pros and cons with your provider.

When Can I Get Started?

The first step in any filler dissolution treatment is a consultation so that the staff at Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic can gain a complete understanding of your medical and cosmetic history. If you did not receive your original dermal filler treatment at Minneapolis Anti-Aging and Skin Clinic, there will be a $50 consultation fee. We will also need the treatment records from the doctor’s office who performed the original treatment.

During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss the pros and cons of filler dissolution. In some cases, your results can be improved by administering an additional filler treatment. In other cases, it might be more effective to allow the filler to dissolve naturally. However, hyaluronidase is an option for those patients who are looking for an immediate and effective solution to issues with their dermal fillers.

Pricing varies for filler remover procedures. If you are a good candidate, you’ll receive a quote during your consultation.
