Filler reversal is an advanced procedure in which an specially formulated enzyme is used to selectively and precisely dissolve undesirable HA fillers. The enzyme is injected in the same way as any other injectable, and begins working in approximately 48 hours. Filler reversal is only possible for HA fillers like JUVEDERM, Restylane, Belotero, Perlane, and Prevelle. It is not effective on Radiesse, Artefill, Silicone, or any other non-HA fillers.

What are the most common reasons for Filler Reversal?

  • Overdone Lips and Cheeks. Inexperienced injectors commonly create overdone lips and cheeks since these injections are very advanced. Filler reversal can be a key step towards looking normal again since overdone lips and cheeks are usually very noticeable.
  • Lumps and Bumps. Lumps are possible after any filler injection, but they are not always a problem. Most lumps will go away with aggressive massage, and even when they don’t go away completely, they are usually not visible. Lumps are most common around in the lips, around the mouth, and under the eyes, and sometimes filler reversal is the only way to make a troublesome lump go away.

Am I a candidate for Filler Reversal?

It depends on which filler you had injected. Filler reversal is only effective for HA fillers, so it will not work on Radiesse, Artefill, or Silicone. if you are not happy with those fillers, the only option is to wait until they dissolve (Radiesse), or to have them surgically removed (Artefill and Silicone). If you are not sure which filler you have, filler reversal is always worth a try before resorting to the cost and downtime associated with surgical removal.

How much does filler reversal cost?

Filler reversal can cost anywhere from $600 for a small lump or two, to over $2,000 for an extensive problem like overfilled cheeks and lips.
