What are Filler Dissolvers?

Welcome to DRV Clinic, where we offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments to help you look and feel your best. One of the most popular treatments we offer is filler dissolver, which is used to remove or correct unwanted filler in the face, particularly the lips.

Filler dissolver, also known as lip filler dissolvers or filler removal agents, are injectable solutions that are used to dissolve or break down hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used in cosmetic treatments to add volume and enhance facial features, such as the lips, cheeks, and under-eye area. While these fillers are generally safe and effective, there are times when a patient may want to have them removed, either due to a bad reaction, unwanted results, or because they have simply changed their mind.

Filler dissolver works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler, which are then absorbed and metabolized by the body. This allows the filler to be naturally removed and dissolved over time, without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures.

Benefits of Filler Dissolvers

There are several benefits to using filler dissolver over other methods of removing filler, such as surgery or laser treatments. One of the main benefits is that they can provide more natural-looking results. Because the filler is gradually dissolved and absorbed by the body, there is less risk of lumps, bumps, or other irregularities that can occur with surgical removal. Additionally, filler dissolveris minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, making them a convenient option for patients who want to quickly and easily correct unwanted filler.

Another benefit of using filler dissolver is that they are specifically designed to break down hyaluronic acid fillers, which are the most commonly used type of filler in cosmetic treatments. This means that they are highly effective and have been extensively tested and proven to be safe.

How the Filler Dissolver procedure works?

At DRV Clinic, we follow a specific protocol for administering filler dissolver to ensure the best possible results for our patients. Here is an overview of the procedure steps:

Pre-treatment preparation: Before the procedure, the patient will have a consultation with our trained medical professional to discuss their goals, medical history, and any concerns they may have. We may also take photos to document the treatment process.

Injection technique: The filler dissolver is injected into the targeted area using a fine needle or cannula. The number of injections and amount of solution used will depend on the specific treatment plan and the amount of filler that needs to be removed.

Post-treatment care: After the procedure, the patient may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses. We will also provide detailed instructions on how to care for the treated area and when to schedule a follow-up appointment.

Recovery after Fillers Dissolver procedure

The recovery time for filler dissolver is generally minimal, with most patients able to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s important to note that there may be some side effects, such as swelling, bruising, or tenderness, which can last for several days. These side effects can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses.

We recommend that patients avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot baths for the first 24 hours after the procedure, as these activities can increase swelling and discomfort. It’s also important to avoid touching or massaging the treated area, as this can cause the filler dissolver to spread to other areas of the face.

We will schedule a follow-up appointmentwith the patient a few weeks after the procedure to assess the results and ensure that they are happy with the outcome. If any touch-up treatments are needed, we can schedule those at this time.

Results of Fillers Dissolver procedure

The results of filler dissolver can vary depending on the amount of filler that needs to be removed, the patient’s individual anatomy, and other factors. However, most patients will start to see a noticeable improvement in the treated area within a few days to a week after the procedure. The full effects of the treatment may take several weeks to fully develop, as the body gradually absorbs and metabolizes the dissolved filler.

At DRV Clinic, we use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to achieve the best possible results for our patients. We also provide before-and-after photos of our patients to help them visualise the changes that can be achieved with filler dissolver.
