What is Filler Reversal?

Filler reversal is the name of a simple, in-office, injectable treatment that reverses the results of dermal fillers. Most people who receive dermal fillers are thrilled with the results. We only provide dermal fillers that address your unique goals, using highly-calibrated doses that don’t leave a trace of cosmetic work. However, in the extremely unlikely chance that you don’t like the results, we can inject a specialized enzyme — hyaluronidase — to dissolve the fillers and reverse the results.

Filler Reversal Goals:

  • Reverse the results of dermal fillers
  • Restore skin and facial contours to pre-filler appearance

How it Works

We use the cutting-edge, FDA-approved Hylenex medication for filler reversal. Hylenex is made of hyaluronidase, a special enzyme that increases the dispersion and absorption of hyaluronic acid molecules. All dermal fillers have a limited lifespan of a few months, following which your body naturally metabolizes the filler molecules. However, Hylenex speeds up your body’s ability to metabolize hyaluronic acid, thus reversing the filler results within a few hours.

Your Filler Reversal Journey


Most patients are thrilled with their dermal filler results. But if you don’t like the results after two weeks, you can ask for filler reversal. Our cosmetic providers will examine your facial skin and mark the treatment areas, following which Hylenex will be carefully injected into targeted areas to dissolve the hyaluronic acid molecules.


Hylenex filler reversal is a safe procedure without downtime. You may experience mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, but there are no major complications. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the injections.


Filler reversal with Hylenex produces instant results within a few minutes, but the hyaluronic acid molecules will continue dissolving for several hours. The results will finalize within a day, making your face look as it did before you received fillers.
