What you need to know about dissolving hyaluronic acid-based injections

14 Mar 2023

Cosmetic procedures making headlines is nothing new over recent years, with a range of treatments gaining immense popularity. The latest treatment to be making waves is Hyaluronic acid-based product dissolving.

What is Hyaluronic acid-based product Dissolving?

Dissolving hyaluronic acid-based product is a relatively new technique that involves injecting a solution into the area where the product has been placed. This solution breaks down the product, which is then naturally absorbed by the body. The solution usually contains an enzyme, which is used to dissolve the main ingredient in the product. When injected into the skin, it quickly breaks down the product, allowing the body to absorb it and return the area to its previous state.

What is Filler Migration?

Another current trending term, “filler migration” is at the root cause of many of the decisions for dissolving the hyaluronic acid-based product. However, it is important to understand exactly what “filler migration” is and ensure you trust the injector who is advising you of this condition and that it is not their intention to have you dissolve all product, to then simply encourage you to refill the treated area immediately after.

“Filler migration” is a rare result, occurring when the product has moved from its intended injection site to create unnatural, obvious distortions to the face, often caused by over-injecting. “Filler migration” is a term that is currently being overused due to a current TikTok trend of many claiming to be experiencing migration, when in fact it is poor product placement that has been misidentified.

Choosing your injector wisely will assist with ensuring the product has been injected correctly in the first place and avoid the need for product dissolving.

When is Filler Dissolving Needed?

There are several other reasons why a patient may choose to have their product dissolved. These include:

Complications: Although rare, complications associated with hyaluronic acid-based injections can include infections, allergic reactions, and the product’s migration to other areas of the face.

Dissatisfaction: Sometimes, patients are not happy with the treatment results. This can be due to overfilling, asymmetry, or simply not achieving the desired outcome.

Correction: In some cases, it may be used to correct the effects of previous treatments.

It is important to note that this treatment is not permanent and on average will last 3 to 6 months. Dissolving will remove any product that has been previously injected, therefore it is crucial to thoroughly think through your decision and to understand the side effects and the reality of the final result, before deciding to dissolve.

At Absolute Cosmetic Perth, we believe it should be used as a last resort when correcting aesthetic complications. Our experienced injectors are trained in techniques that could help treat your concerns before you need to have your treatments dissolved.

If still deciding to proceed, it is crucial to be treated by a medical practitioner.

What to Expect After the Filler Dissolving Procedure?

After the dissolving procedure, patients can expect some swelling and redness in the treated area, volume loss or skin laxity and some may experience an allergic reaction.

It is recommended to wait several weeks before being re-injected to the treated area to avoid further complications and disappointment.
