Can You Dissolve Some Filler and Not All?

You may have the option of dissolving lip fillers early, depending on the type of filler used. You may be able to dissolve all or just part of the filling if you want to reduce the volume or even out the formation of lumps. One of the most important assumptions is that hyaluronic acid fillers eventually dissolve and then it's time to get more. And while it is true that part of what is injected dissolves and is discarded by the body, it is not true that the body completely dissolves all of the filler. If you don't like the appearance of the filling and want to reverse it, you can get help from a specialized medical provider.

Many common fillers can be easily dissolved or reduced. The main exception is Sculptra, which cannot be reversed since its final result is collagen. Radiesse can't be reversed either, as it's made of a calcium base instead of a hyaluronic acid. As an expert in dermal fillers, I can tell you that while there is no scientific determination as to how long the body dissolves the filler, I hypothesize that most of the dissolution occurs within the first 2 to 4 weeks after the filler is injected. Hyaluronic acid fillers were detected on the ultrasounds of patients who received fillers up to 2, 6 and 12 years ago.

Most dermal fillers settle or show their full results after 2 to 3 weeks, although there are some exceptions. Another common reason for wanting the filling to dissolve is if the filling is placed shallowly and creates lumps and nodules. To start with your first dermal filler or make adjustments to your appearance after the filler, schedule an appointment with Beauty Boost Med Spa. Before you get your first filler injection, you may want to know how soon you'll see the results, how long they'll last, and how long it will take for the fillers to dissolve if you don't like the results in the end. An Australian doctor who has performed several filling procedures over the years observed that his patient's fillers did not dissolve after 6 to 12 months, as stated.

There is also evidence that patients who received hyaluronic acid fillers a decade ago and haven't had an injection since then still have the filler present in their bodies. It is also important to note that location of the filler is a factor that determines whether the filler can be dissolved or not. If you're considering getting dermal fillers but are worried about them not dissolving properly, rest assured that there are many options available for reversing them if needed. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy your new look for years to come.
