Filler Reversal Beverly Hills

Dermal filler is a safe, effective, semi-permanent solution to increasing the fullness of your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and even enhancing certain facial features such as your lips. However, when receiving dermal filler injections, there’s always the possibility that the result may not be to your liking.

Before your injections, your plastic surgeon will discuss your aesthetic goals with you and how best to achieve those with dermal fillers. But even if your doctor applies the correct amounts of filler in the areas that you agreed upon, you may realize that you desire less filler or a differently distributed treatment later on.

Luckily, the results of most dermal filler injections are not permanent and can be reversed easily with filler reversal injections. Speak to your provider about reversal injections if you’re unhappy with your dermal filler results.

What Are Filler Reversal Injections?

Most lip fillers are made with a hyaluronic acid base that increases volume and plumpness in the area in which it’s injected. In order to reverse the effects of hyaluronic acid, your plastic surgeon will have to inject a material that contains the enzyme hyaluronidase, which naturally dissolves the particles of hyaluronic acid present in the skin.

Filler reversal injections are performed in a very similar fashion to dermal filler injections—through the injection of a series of tiny needles, the amount of which depends on your goals. You can receive filler reversal injections to completely reverse the effects of your dermal fillers or simply reduce a portion of your filler results in the facial areas.  

Filler Reversal Injections Benefits

There are several distinct benefits to filler reversal injections if you are unsatisfied with the results of your dermal fillers. As long as your filler reversal injections are performed by a licensed professional with experience, you can:

  • Reduce the appearance of overfilled cheeks, lips, and wrinkles
  • Correct unevenly placed filler
  • Get rid of unsightly lumps left by filler
  • Fix any textural issues
  • Reduce long-term swelling caused by some hydrophilic fillers
  • Resolve allergic reactions or hardened areas due to hyaluronic acid fillers

Filler reversal injections are the best way to fix any issues caused by excessive or incorrectly placed dermal filler. However, it’s important to wait approximately two weeks after your original filler appointment before taking measures to reverse the effects, as the results of your dermal fillers won’t be completely accurate until all bruising and swelling have gone down.

Ideal Candidate for Filler Reversal Injections

The best possible candidate for filler reversal injections is someone who is unsatisfied with the results of their dermal filler injections after waiting at least two weeks post-procedure for their filler to set. Most people who are unhappy with their dermal fillers report problems like uneven or excessive increases in volume on their face and neck, uneven increases to their lip size, and small lumps of filler near their injection site.

If your dermal fillers were applied correctly, and you achieved aesthetic results as expected but simply want to remove them for personal reasons, you are also a great candidate for filler reversal injections. Additionally, if you’re experiencing any allergy symptoms that your doctor determines may result from the dermal fillers themselves, filler reversal injections are an effective way to relieve these symptoms.

The Complete Filler Reversal Injections Procedure

In order to reverse the effects of your dermal filler injections, the process is extremely similar to receiving your dermal fillers. In your plastic surgeon’s office, you’ll receive a series of small-needle injections into the specific areas where you are unsatisfied with your filler, and the hyaluronidase present in the injected substance will work to dissolve the hyaluronic acid within your dermal fillers.

Before Treatment

Filler reversal injections are a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that doesn’t require any anesthesia or downtime. Plus, you won’t have to return after the fact to get any stitches or dressings removed.

In order to prepare for your procedure, you’ll first have to consult with surgeon’s team of experts to make sure they understand your dissatisfaction with your dermal fillers and what difference you want your filler reversal injections to make in your appearance. This will allow us to create a plan of action for your filler reversal injection procedure.

Once you have your plan of action in place, it’s important that you show up on time to your filler reversal appointment with a freshly washed face that’s clear of any lotions or makeup. If you tend to be sensitive to pain or needles, you can purchase Zensa on TheSkinSpot.com and apply it to the area you would like reversed 30 minutes before your treatment time. We can also provide you with a topical anesthetic to reduce pain in the area on the day of your procedure. Other products that can reduce downtime are our compounded Arnica, Bromelain, and Vitamin K capsules, Ocumend patches, and Inhance cream available under the bruising category on TheSkinSpot.com

During Treatment

Much like dermal filler injections, filler reversal injections aren’t a very long procedure and can be completed quickly. Depending on your aesthetic goals with the procedure, your filler reversal injections could take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to finish.


After your filler reversal injections, you may not see results instantaneously like you did when you received your fillers. Results will vary for different patients, especially if you have any scar tissue built up in the area. Usually, patients will start to see the full effects of their filler reversal injections within two weeks after the procedure.

Filler reversal injections are an effective way to reduce or fix unwanted effects of dermal fillers. However, if you’re still unable to reach your aesthetic goals with filler reversal, keep in mind that the original effects of your dermal fillers are not permanent and should wear off within about a year.

Common Side Effects

Some of the common side effects of hyaluronidase include swelling and bruising, similar to the side effects of hyaluronic acid. Generally, side effects tend to be minimal and will fade away by themselves in a few days. Icing helps to reduce side effects.

If you experience prolonged side effects or any abnormal symptoms, make sure to contact your doctor immediately.
