If you’re done with living with unsatisfactory result from dermal fillers, worried about a side effect, or simply changed your mind, then we are here to assist.


To ensure smooth and successful filler dissolving, follow these preparation guidelines:

  • Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption within 24 hours of your appointment
  • Refrain from engaging in intense exercise right before your appointment


After your dermal filler dissolving session, follow these aftercare steps to promote optimal healing and recovery:

  • Avoid wearing makeup, consuming excessive alcohol, and participating in intense exercise until the next day
  • To minimise swelling and bruising, gently apply a wrapped ice pack to the treated areas


Once we have determined the most suitable approach to address your concerns, we can dissolve your dermal filler. Our dissolving protocol reverses dermal filler with the utmost precision, and minimal discomfort.

While the dermal filler dissolver begins working immediately, it’s important to allow time for any swelling to subside. Within 1-2 days, you’ll feel relieved as the unwanted effects caused by the filler fade.

If you have been using fillers for an extended period, removing them may reveal signs of ageing that were previously disguised. Don’t worry, we have the perfect solution. 1-2 weeks after dissolving, we can correctly re-inject dermal filler or collagen stimulators. This allows you to regain a refreshed appearance with natural-looking results.

    Filler dissolving is a treatment to reverse unwanted dermal fillers. It also treats dermal filler side effects.

    To dissolve dermal filler, we use injections of Hyalase.

    Hyalase instantly breaks down dermal filler molecules.

    Your body then metabolises the dermal filler molecules naturally.

    Dissolving dermal filler should only be done if medically indicated.

    Filler dissolving is a medical procedure, and has some important risks involved.

    An experienced medical professional will be able to advise on whether it is a good idea to reverse your dermal fillers.

    You should wait 2 weeks after dissolving your fillers before re-injecting the same area. There are 2 reasons why we wait 2 weeks:

    1. It allows enough time for the dissolved area to heal, meaning the new filler can be injected with precision.
    2. Injecting new filler within 48 hours of dissolving filler in the same area will result in the new filler also being dissolved.

    There are 3 reasons why we dissolve dermal filler:

    1. To prepare for surgery in the area that has dermal filler.
    2. When you change your mind about getting fillers, or simply want to start fresh.
    3. If you have a side effect or don’t like the result. These are rare when your treatment is done by a qualified medical professional.

    We use injections of hyaluronidase to dissolve dermal filler.

    This is a simple, safe, and convenient procedure.

    Hyaluronidase breaks down dermal filler molecules, allowing your body to rapidly metabolise them.

    1 dissolving treatment is usually sufficient to reverse your dermal fillers.

    There are certain cases where you may need more than 1 treatment, such as when dissolve large amounts of filler.

    You can review the cost of reversing dermal filler at Cosmetic Connection here.

    Unfortunately we cannot reverse permanent dermal fillers. To remove permanent fillers, you will need to discuss your options of a surgeon.

    In cosmetic medicine, we use hyaluronidase to dissolve dermal filler.

    Hyaluronidase is also used to assist with other procedures, by improving the effect of local anaesthetic.

    The amount of hyalase needed to dissolve your dermal filler depends on the following:

    • The amount of dermal filler requiring dissolving.
    • The concentration of hyaluronic acid/ml in the dermal filler – thicker fillers need more dissolver.
    • Cross-linking of the dermal filler – more cross-linked fillers need more dissolver.
    • Extent of the problem – small cosmetic issues can be treated with micro-hyalase, leaving other filler intact.

    Dermal filler dissolving can be extremely painful if not done correctly.

    At Cosmetic Connection, we use a carefully calculated blend of local anaesthetic and pH neutralising solution to minimise discomfort when dissolving dermal filler. This makes dissolving dermal filler with us almost painless.

    Reversing dermal filler with hyalase takes 5-10 minutes.

    Having your dermal filler reversed is a very simple process. The first step is to carefully assess your concerns.

    Reversing dermal filler takes less than 10 minutes. We clean and numb the area, and the carefully inject dissolver with tiny needles.

    After the treatment there may be slight redness and swelling. Some people get slight bruising in more sensitive areas like the lips. You will be able to resume normal activity immediately after treatment.

    We use a combination of ice, strong numbing cream and local anaesthetic injections to numb the area before dissolving.

    To further ensure comfort, we prepare filler dissolver with a blend of strong anaesthetic and neutralising solution. This make dissolving filler almost painless.

    Hyalase breaks down dermal filler immediately. It can continue working for up to 48 hours.

    Filler dissolving works immediately. You should allow a few days for any local swelling to settle before assessing the final result.

    There are some anecdotal reports that dissolving their filler damages your skin and facial tissue.

    This has not been definitively proven. While filler dissolver it can break down your natural hyaluronic acid, this is regenerated by the body in 1-2 days.

    If you have had filler for years, it has been hiding the ageing process. When you suddenly take the filler away, your underlying ageing is revealed. The dermal filler and dissolver have not accelerated the ageing process.

    To prepare for filler dissolving, follow these important steps:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup

    After reversing your dermal filler you can resume normal activity immediately. To promote optimal healing, follow these steps:

    • Apply a wrapped ice pack gently for any discomfort and to reduce swelling
    • Avoid strenuous exercise and excessive alcohol for 24 hours

    It is normal to experience mild swelling after reversing dermal filler. Apply a cold pack after your treatment to keep swelling to a minimum.

    We occasionally see bruising after reversing dermal filler. We use an advanced preparation of filler dissolver to minimise the risk of bruising.

    Certain areas of the face are more prone to bruising than others, particularly the lips and under eyes.

    Bruising can be concealed with makeup the day after your filler dissolving.

    Dissolving dermal filler is a safe treatment when performed by a qualified medical professional.

    Common side effects of filler dissolving include local swelling and redness.

    Rare risks include severe swelling and allergic reactions.

    The main risk of reversing dermal filler is an allergic reaction. It is vital to only have dermal filler dissolved at a doctor-led clinic for safety reasons.

    Hyalase breaks down hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, and the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin.

    Fortunately, your body regenerates new hyaluronic acid in 1-2 days.

    You are not suitable for hyalase dermal filler dissolving if you:

    • Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Have a history of allergic reactions to hyaluronidase

    If you have a known allergy to bee stings, you may not be suitable for filler dissolving.
