Filler Correction with Skin Medical

Explore the transformative potential of filler correction

What is Filler Correction?

Filler correction is a procedure used to address undesired results from dermal filler treatments. It can be used to dissolve areas that have been overfilled or to correct cases where the filler has migrated or been misplaced. This ensures that you achieve the desired aesthetic outcome and maintain a natural, balanced appearance.

Filler correction involves the use of an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which is naturally present in the skin. Hyaluronidase is commonly used to dissolve hyaluronic acid, the main component of many dermal fillers. During the procedure, this enzyme is carefully injected into the area where the filler was originally placed, accelerating the natural breakdown of the filler and correcting any undesired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about Filler Correction

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Anywhere on the face can be corrected and restored using this dissolving enzyme. Whether it’s to address overfilled areas or misplaced filler, hyaluronidase can help achieve a balanced, natural appearance.

Is It Painful?

This procedure is virtually painless. A very fine needle is used to administer the enzyme, and a numbing cream is applied to eliminate any chance of discomfort. Dr. Sabika Karim ensures the process is as comfortable as possible for you.

Do I Need a Patch Test?

On the day of the treatment, an allergy or patch test might be conducted to ensure there will not be an allergic reaction. This precaution helps guarantee your safety and the effectiveness of the procedure.

How Much Will It Cost?

The cost of this procedure depends on the quantity of filler that needs to be dissolved.

What is the recovery time for fat injections?

Recovery times can vary based on the extent of the procedure and the individual’s healing process. Typically, patients can return to normal activities within a few days. However, it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities for up to a few weeks to allow the transferred fat to stabilise.

What Can I Expect After the Treatment?

Depending on how much hyaluronidase enzyme is used, you may experience some swelling in the treated areas for 2-3 hours. The results of the filler correction treatment are usually visible within 3-7 days, although the enzyme continues to work until around 14 days post-procedure.

Is It a Permanent Result or Will I Need to Come Back?

The number of sessions required for dissolving hyaluronic acid fillers can vary based on the type of filler used. For larger molecule fillers aimed at areas like the cheeks, chin, or jawline, multiple sessions may be necessary. We typically reassess patients after two weeks and may administer additional injections if needed.

Can I Have More Filler Put in Afterwards?

It is advised to allow two weeks after the procedure before adding more filler to the area. This allows the enzyme to fully dissolve the original filler as desired, ensuring optimal results.

Is Dissolving Fillers Safe?

Dissolving fillers is generally considered safe, particularly because the dissolving agent, hyaluronidase, is similar to the fillers themselves and is derived from naturally occurring substances. However, like any medical procedure, it is safest when performed by an experienced injector like Dr Sabika Karim.

Despite the overall safety, there is a slight risk associated with the treatment, especially if there is an undisclosed allergy to hyaluronidase that could trigger a reaction.
