Unsatisfactory results from fillers—or even filler that looks fine but the patient regrets getting it—is very common. We see many patients in this situation, and Dr. G is the ideal choice for correcting these issues.
How Cosmetic Injection Correction is Done
There is no standard answer or technique for cosmetic injection correction. As mentioned above, Dr. G takes a highly personalized approach to each unique patient and their situation.
Sometimes cosmetic injection revision can be accomplished by simple dermal filler dissolver. There is an enzyme called hyaluronidase that is a reversal agent for hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and this works to break them down quickly and effectively.
Then there are situations in which a “permanent” filler can be dissolved, but there’s a catch. For example, sometimes Kenalog (a steroid) is used to dissolve filler, but it creates tissue or skin atrophy which can only be corrected with constant fillers and/or fat transfer to fill the gap.
However, sometimes filler cannot be reversed with any type of dissolvent, and more aggressive measures must be taken—such as excision with a scalpel. This is the case with many patients.
