Can I ‘undo’ fillers? Fillers injection is a popular aesthetic treatment to enhance your facial feature.
But what can be done if you don’t like the result of your fillers?
Before you make any decision…….
- Wait two weeks
It is not uncommon to have swelling, bumps, and bruising after the filler injection. This may take up to two weeks to settle.
It is best to give yourself at least two weeks to assess the final result, before deciding if you are dissatisfied with the results.
- Talk to your doctor
It is best to discuss your concerns with your doctor, as it may be possible to correct or further improve the appearance of fillers.
For example, lumpiness or slight unevenness can be improved by massaging the area, which is best done by the doctor.
Depending on your concerns, placement of additional fillers in strategic areas may also further enhance the results.
I still don’t like the result! Can I ‘undo’ my fillers?
Fortunately, most fillers are not permanent, and will be broken down by your body in months to years, depending on the filler material.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, the most common type of filler, usually takes 6 to 12 months to be dissolved naturally by your body via an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
If you want to reverse it more quickly, you can opt to have hyaluronidase injected directly into the area to dissolve the hyaluronic filler.
The effect is seen within 24 hours. As hyaluronidase is derived from animal origin, there is a small risk of allergic reaction, swelling, and bruising. There is also a risk of removing more filler material than desired.
Most people are happy with the results from fillers, which are subtle and natural-looking when done by an experienced doctor.
It is best to discuss with your doctor what to expect from the procedure, and how best to achieve a good result.
