Dermal fillers can be a wonderful treatment for adding natural-looking volume to your lips, cheeks, and other areas of your face.
How does Dissolving Filler Work?
The filler dissolving process can only be used for hyaluronic acid-based fillers, including Juvéderm, Restylane, and Voluma. The treatment is performed using hyaluronidase, which is a soluble protein enzyme capable of breaking down the hyaluronic acid found in these dermal fillers. When the hyaluronidase solution is injected into the skin, it works by breaking down the bonds that hold the hyaluronic acid molecules together. This encourages the body to reabsorb those molecules much sooner than they normally would, which effectively removes the dermal fillers.
