At Face To Face Medical, we prioritise safety. Therefore, we use Dermal Fillers that can be dissolved. Dermal Fillers gel consists of a sugar, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body that helps hydrate and add volume to the skin and underlying soft tissue. By injecting an enzyme into the skin, the Dermal Fillers can be dissolved if necessary. This can be performed if you want to reverse the results or there is an allergy or other complication.
The dissolving enzyme is a soluble protein solution that acts by breaking up the bonds that hold the Dermal Fillers molecule together and encourages the body to reabsorb those molecules in a natural process.
The dissolving enzyme solution is combined with a local anaesthetic and injected with a very fine needle into targeted areas of the Dermal Fillers. Usually, only select areas are treated. More than one session may be required. There may be temporary swelling and bruising after the procedure.
The filler may dissolve immediately however it can take days for maximum results. For this reason, it’s advisable to wait at least a week for further Dermal Fillers treatment if needed.
