Dissolve lip fillers?: Dermal fillers placed in the lips can offer significant improvements to the appearance of ageing, thinning or dehydration. During this treatment, a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid (HA) is injected into specific areas of the lips to create volume, symmetry and more definition.
However, long-term or over-use of HA dermal fillers or misplaced product can end up congesting the lips and misshaping them. Old dermal filler which has not dissolved or dissipated, due to this over-filling can harden, and this is when problems can occur, such as filler ‘spread’ (the migration of dermal filler into unwanted areas of the lips).
At KL Cosmetic Clinic in Doncaster, we offer a corrective and refreshing treatment to rid the lips of old dermal filler with a product called Hyalase (made from Hyaluronidase, an enzyme which disperses HA and occurs naturally within the body). Hyalase dissolves any residual dermal filler and allows for the lips to return to their natural shape, before treating once more with fresh, new and softer dermal fillers for a more pleasing result.

𝗧𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗗𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲 Occasionally, treatment over the years can cause lip filler treatment to loose definition, shape, and can cause a ‘puffy’ appearance above the top lip. We class this treatment as a 𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗵𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 of the lip area. This does not necessarily mean that the previous treatment has been carried out with the wrong products or techniques. We feel that it’s a build up of filler that requires dissolving or refreshing for the best results. Some practitioners may disagree and call this misplaced product placement or migration of filler. This treatment comes with 𝗵𝗶𝗴𝗵 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗸𝘀 therefore a thorough history and consultation is required. #KL
Suppose you have been having lip filler injections for some years. You might see that your filler is migrating into the upper areas (between the bottom of your nose and the top line of your lip). Filler movement can end up giving a ‘duck face’ protrusion and even a white looking rim around your lips. Not the best or most natural look in the world, but a simple treatment with Hyalase can dissolve the migrated, hardened old filler and make way for a new treatment using a softer product which may suit you better.
Having lip filler dissolved may sound like something from a sci-fi movie, and you may think it’s painful. You may even imagine that this is a tortuous process which involves squeezing the dermal filler out of the lips, manually. However, this is not the case.
Hyalase treatment is fairly painless and gives a far better result to lip augmentation, further down the line, than if the old filler is present. It is simply injected into the area of concern and left to work its magic. No nasty squeezing or hellish pinching!
At KL Cosmetic Clinics, we advise on using the same product for at least six months before changing a dermal filler brand. We only use Juvederm dermal fillers here at the clinic, so as long as you have had your previous dermal filler removed with Hyalase, you will be able to have one of the clinically-acclaimed, FDA-approved Juvéderm product range injected, soon afterwards.
We put patient wellbeing first, so if you have visible dermal fillers, we wait at least six months before changing brand. We aim to use only the best products, but can use other brands if you still have remaining filler. Ask us about changing dermal filler brands at consultation.
You won’t be able to have a dermal filler treatment immediately after your Hyalase treatment, as the product needs time to dissolve the older filler and for your lips to settle into their natural shape and projection. Expect to wait for 10 to 14 days before new filler can be administered.
Before a treatment to dissolve lip fillers or other dermal fillers, we will ask for you to attend a no-obligation consultation, so that we can assess your individual concern, check your medical history and work out a treatment plan that best suits your needs and your timings. You may want to have the treatment straight away or wish to wait for a suitable time, so that your complete treatment can be undertaken with no interruptions, such as a special event or holiday.
No one wants to regret their cosmetic treatments, and with Hyalase, you don’t have to look back at previous injections of dermal fillers with a sinking feeling. You can refresh your look quickly and safely so that your next dermal filler procedure offers you the beautiful result youthful and fuller lips once more.
