At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we’ve helped countless patients achieve great results with dermal filler and injectable treatments. Unfortunately, we also meet with many patients who have received fillers elsewhere and are unhappy with their results. These patients all share the same question: can my dermal filler treatment be undone? Below, we’ll explain what that process is like.
Do You Need Immediate Attention?
We understand that it can be difficult to live with cosmetic results that you aren’t happy with. However, it’s important to remember that all dermal filler and injectable products are temporary. Therefore, if you are unhappy with your results, you might want to consider just waiting it out instead of scheduling to have the filler dissolved or have additional treatments.
How are Fillers Undone?
In the event that you choose to undo your dermal filler treatment, they will be “undone” by dissolving the dermal filler formula. This process involves the injection of an additional formula, which will react with the ingredients in the dermal filler gel and cause it to dissolve. However, it’s important to know that when this happens, your entire results will go away. So if you are happy with a portion of your results, but there are some other areas you would like to address, this is something you’ll need to consider before pursuing the dissolving treatment.
What Dermal Fillers can Be Dissolved?
Not all dermal filler treatments can be undone via the dissolving method. The ones that can are typically hyaluronic acid-based fillers, most namely the Juvederm® products. This line of fillers are what we specialize in at Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery. Since not all dermal fillers can be undone, it’s important that patients consider the risks and long-term effects of their dermal filler treatments before they decide to receive them.
