What is Ultrasound-Guided Dermal Filler Dissolving?
Ultrasound-guided filler dissolving is a cutting-edge procedure that utilizes ultrasound technology to visualize, identify the exact location, and dissolve the unwanted dermal filler. Using ultrasound guidance, we can precisely target and dissolve the dermal filler, minimizing the risk of over-treating the targeted and surrounding areas.
How Does Dermal Filler Dissolving Work?
Dermal filler dissolving involves the use of an enzyme called hyaluronidase (Hylenex), which breaks down the hyaluronic acid-based fillers commonly used in cosmetic treatments. Using ultrasound guidance, our staff precisely injects the hyaluronidase into the targeted areas where the dermal filler needs to be dissolved. The enzyme works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid molecules, gradually reversing the effects of the filler and restoring a more natural appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Dermal Filler Dissolving?
Dermal filler dissolving is an excellent option for individuals who are unhappy with their previous filler treatments, experiencing complications, or desire to make adjustments. Good candidates for dermal filler dissolving may include those who:

- Want to reverse the effects of dermal fillers that have migrated or created an unnatural appearance.
- Experience complications such as lumps, bumps, or uneven texture due to previous filler injections.
