How it works
Unfortunately, poor industry training and a lack of regulation are causing more people to experience poor dermal filler results. In some cases, incorrectly placed dermal filler is even causing unforeseen problems.
The doctors at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne have years of experience in the correct injection of dermal filler. They know how to manage incorrectly injected dermal fillers.
Filler dissolving involves the injection of an enzyme that degrades dermal filler. The broken down dermal filler is then metabolised by the body.
Using evidence-based protocols, we can dissolve dermal filler with minimal pain, swelling or bruising. We don’t need to dissolve all your filler either. With a precise approach, we can use micro-dissolving to touch up small imperfections.
One of the biggest advantages of dermal filler is that it can be reversed. Some of the more common problems we are helping people in Melbourne fix include the following:
- Lip filler migration and lumps
- Swollen and lumpy tear troughs (the hollow directly below your eyes) from under eye filler
- Blue skin discolouration from dermal filler injected too shallow (known as the Tyndall effect)
- Double jawline phenomenon from jawline filler
- Nose bridge widening from nose filler
- Overfilled areas like the cheeks and lips
Depending on the severity of the problem, we may only need to dissolve a small amount of dermal filler, preserving some of the result from your previous treatment.
Dermal filler may also need to be reversed if you are undergoing surgery in an area that has been previously treated with dermal filler.
Preparation & aftercare
While you may be wanting to remove your filler as soon as possible, good before-care will ensure the treatment goes to plan. You should adhere to the following before having your dermal filler dissolved in Melbourne:
- Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
- Avoid consuming excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
- Refrain from intense exercise immediately before your appointment
After having your dermal filler dissolved in Melbourne, strict aftercare will expedite the healing process. Dermal filler dissolving aftercare includes:
- Avoid makeup, excessive alcohol and intense exercise until the following day
- Apply a wrapped ice pack to the treated areas to minimise swelling and bruising

Dermal filler reversal (also known as filler dissolving) is a treatment that removes dermal filler. An enzyme found naturally in the body known as hyaluronidase is injected into the unwanted filler. Hyaluronidase breaks down the filler molecules, which are then metabolised by the body.
Dermal filler is dissolved by using tiny needles to precisely inject hyaluronidase enzyme into areas where you want to remove your filler. The treatment is very effective at removing dermal filler, and only takes a few minutes to perform.
Having dermal filler dissolved can be almost painless when done correctly. Here at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne, we have access to a range of strong numbing options to keep any discomfort to an absolute minimum.
Dissolving dermal filler without adequate anaesthetic can be very painful.
Dermal filler will gradually break down over 12-24 months. However, you can immediately reverse dermal fillers at any time using dermal filler dissolver.
There are a few steps to take before your filler dissolving treatment in Melbourne to ensure the best outcome, and the lowest risk of side effects. They include:
- Cease all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (unless you have been advised to take these by a medical practitioner)
- Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
- Attend your appointment without makeup
After reversing your dermal filler in Melbourne you will be able to resume normal activity immediately. You will be numb around the injected area due to the effect of the local anaesthetic.
The most important things to do after filler dissolving are as follows:
- Apply a wrapped ice pack gently for any discomfort and to reduce swelling
- Avoid strenuous exercise and excessive alcohol for 24 hours
Dissolving dermal filler is a safe and effective way to reverse your dermal fillers. When deciding whether or not to dissolve dermal filler, we generally consider the risks and benefits of not dissolving against the risks and benefits of dissolving.

We have designed our reversal protocol to dissolve dermal filler with high precision and minimal discomfort.
Dermal filler dissolver works immediately, but you’ll need to wait 1-2 days for any swelling to settle. Once settled, you will feel relieved that the issues caused by your filler are gone.
If you have had the filler for many years, you may notice that your appearance is different to how you remember. This is because the dermal filler has disguised the ageing process. If you want to properly re-inject dermal filler or collagen stimulating injections after dissolving, we can do this after 1-2 weeks.
What causes dermal filler migration?
Dermal filler migration is usually seen with lip filler. While the lips are the most common area to get filler migration, it can occur anywhere on the face.
Migration of dermal filler has a few causes:
- Improper injection technique (Russian lip fillers being the most common cause)
- Too much dermal filler injected in one area
- Dermal filler injected in one area too often
- Injecting the wrong type of dermal filler
Dermal fillers often migrate when used in the lips because most clinics overfill them, and because they are a mobile area of the face.
If you have dermal filler migration, you can treat it with dermal filler dissolving.
Can dermal filler dissolver damage your face?
We use an injectable enzyme known as hyaluronidase to break down dermal filler molecules.
When injected, hyaluronidase breaks down both dermal filler, and natural hyaluronic acid. The body then regenerates the natural hyaluronic acid, restoring normal levels to the facial tissues.
If you are dissolving filler that has been present in your face for a long time, please be aware that the dermal filler has been disguising the ageing process. After dissolving the filler, you will reveal the underlying facial ageing, and you may appear older than you remember.
