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:

  1. Wish to correct asymmetry or disproportions caused by previous filler treatments.
  2. Want to reverse the effects of dermal fillers that have migrated or created an unnatural appearance.
  3. Experience complications such as lumps, bumps, or uneven texture due to previous filler injections.
  4. Seek to restore their natural facial contours and appearance.

What areas are commonly treated with dermal filler dissolver?

Dermal filler dissolver (hyaluronidase) can be used to treat various areas, including:

Lips: To reduce excessive lip filler or correct asymmetry.

Under-eye area: To address overfilled tear troughs or under-eye hollows.

Nasolabial folds: To adjust or soften the appearance of deep smile lines.

Cheeks: To correct overfilled or uneven cheek filler.

Marionette lines: To improve the appearance of downturned corners of the mouth.

Chin: To dissolve filler in the chin area for better contouring.

Nose: To correct or refine the results of non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Temple area: To address overfilled or uneven temples.

Forehead: To adjust or dissolve filler in the forehead region.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dermal filler dissolving?

Dermal filler dissolving is a procedure that uses an enzyme called hyaluronidase to break down hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. It helps reverse the effects of fillers, correct complications, or adjust undesired results.

How does ultrasound-guided dissolving differ from other dissolving techniques?

Ultrasound-guided dissolving offers enhanced precision and safety by using ultrasound technology to visualize the filler and guide the injection. In addition, it allows for targeted dissolving, minimizing the risk to surrounding tissues.

Is dermal filler dissolving a painful procedure?

Discomfort during the procedure is generally minimal. A topical anesthetic or a numbing cream can be applied to ensure comfort.

How long does it take to see results after the treatment?

Results can be noticeable immediately after the dissolving treatment. However, it may take a few days for any swelling or bruising to subside and for the final results to be fully visible.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with dermal filler dissolving?

Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These usually resolve within a few days. Allergic reactions or infections are rare but possible.

Can all types of dermal fillers be dissolved?

Hyaluronidase, the enzyme used for dissolving, specifically targets hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronidase will not help with dermal fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra.

How many sessions of dissolving are typically required?

The number of sessions required depends on various factors, such as the amount of filler present and the desired results. In some cases, complete dissolving may be achieved in a single session, while others may require multiple sessions.

Can I have dermal filler dissolving if I have allergies or sensitivities?

Individuals with known allergies or sensitivities to hyaluronidase or its components may not be suitable candidates for the dissolving treatment. Therefore, discussing your medical history and any allergies with our staff before undergoing the procedure is essential.

What is the recovery time after dermal filler dissolving?

Recovery time is generally minimal. Most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, it's advised to avoid intense physical exercise and exposure to excessive heat or sunlight for a few days.

Can I undergo dermal filler dissolving if I have had previous cosmetic treatments?

Yes, dermal filler dissolving can be performed even if you have had previous cosmetic treatments. It allows for adjustments or corrections to previous filler treatments that may not have yielded the desired outcomes.

Will dissolving the filler affect my natural collagen production?

Dissolving the filler does not directly affect your natural collagen production. However, the natural aging process will continue, and collagen production may decline over time.

How long does a dermal filler dissolving treatment session typically take?

The duration of a dermal filler dissolving session varies depending on the areas being treated and the amount of filler to be dissolved. On average, a treatment session can range from 15 minutes to 1 hour.

Are there any specific pre-treatment instructions to follow?

Our team will provide you with specific pre-treatment instructions, which may include avoiding certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding or bruising. It's important to follow these instructions carefully for optimal results and safety.

Can I wear makeup after dermal filler dissolving?

It's generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup immediately after the treatment to allow the skin to heal.

Can dermal filler dissolving be performed on areas other than the face?

Yes, dermal filler dissolving can be performed on areas other than the face, such as the lips, hands, or other body parts where fillers have been injected.

Is dermal filler dissolving suitable for all skin types?

Yes, dermal filler dissolving is suitable for all skin types.

Can dermal filler dissolving address complications from non-hyaluronic acid fillers?

Dermal filler dissolving is primarily designed to address complications and dissolve hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Hyaluronidase will not help with dermal fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra.

Is dermal filler dissolving a safe procedure?

When performed by our qualified and experienced staff, dermal filler dissolving is generally considered safe. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. It's crucial to have the treatment performed by a trusted professional to minimize the risks and ensure optimal outcomes.
