Lip Filler Removal
Lip fillers have become a convenient and popular way to plump, define and improve the appearance of the lips without invasive surgery. In the hands of a skilled physician, dermal fillers can create subtle, sensual and youthful enhancements with strategically placed injections. Unfortunately, not all lip fillers go as planned. If you are dissatisfied with your recent lip filler results, you don’t necessarily have to wait 6 to 18 months for the filler to naturally dissolve. At Modern Aesthetica, we are proud to offer lip filler removal, a simple procedure used to reverse a poorly performed filler treatment or one that resulted in an unnatural or overdone appearance.
Lip Injection Reversal Procedure
Lip injection reversal involves a straightforward procedure with little to no downtime. We use a special injectable product called hyaluronidase, which works to gradually dissolve the lip filler within the following 2 to 3 weeks. Initial lip reduction results are often noticed within a few days after your lip filler removal procedure. Keep in mind that hyaluronidase is only effective for lips fillers that are hyaluronic acid (HA) based, which includes the popular line of products Juvederm and Restylane.
While all fillers are temporary, the latest lip fillers can last up to 18 months. When the procedure failed to yield the results you desired, this can seem like an eternity. Therefore, if your recent attempt for more beautiful lips turned into an unnatural pout or “duck lips” after the injection, it is understandable that you want to correct the outcome as soon as possible. We have a team of skilled physicians who can provide lip injection reversal so that you can reduce the size or fullness of your lips and regain a more confident appearance.
