Dermal fillers are most frequently used to fill in deep lines and wrinkles on your face. In particular, they are used around the mouth and nose. However, some can be used in other places across your face, such as your cheeks and lips, and even on your hands to provide more volume. While they are usually used to help you feel more beautiful or to help you look younger, you may occasionally want to get rid of your dermal fillers. You may want to go with your completely natural look, or you may be unhappy with the unnatural look of dermal fillers that you received elsewhere.
Methods for Different Types of Dermal Fillers
The easiest types of dermal fillers to reverse are those made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your body. Reversing the filler will feel nearly the same as getting the filler because only a simple injection will be needed. Your practitioner will inject a special solvent into the treated area to dissolve the filler gel. Your body will then gradually reabsorb the filler safely. While results may not be immediate, you will see great results in only a few days.
However, other types of fillers can be harder to treat. These fillers are not designed to dissolve in your body as hyaluronic acid is. In fact, some, such as Bellafill, are supposed to be permanent. Therefore, you will need to have a serious discussion with your practitioner about what you can do in these situations. In addition, this can serve as a good reminder for you to start with an easier hyaluronic acid-based filler on your first session in case you are not pleased with the results.
Consult Cosmetic Procedure Experts
To avoid having to reverse dermal fillers, be sure that you are completely comfortable with your decision to get them before proceeding and be sure that you are seeking filler injections from a qualified cosmetic surgeon. You can find injectable treatments nearly anywhere these days, including at day spas. However, practitioners there may not have the knowledge and skills that trained and board-certified surgeons, such as Dr. Tavoussi, have. Of course, there may be many reasons why you want to reverse your fillers. Be sure to have an honest discussion with Dr. Tavoussi about your wishes.
