At Illume Med Spa in Lee's Summit, MO, we’re committed to being 100% transparent with our clients. We believe injectors should educate patients on the “why” behind filler dissolving, noting that it’s about protecting the integrity of the area. And that’s the approach we take.
Dissolving existing filler before receiving more injections is an essential and often overlooked step in maintaining the integrity and shape of your lips. In this context, a dissolving session isn’t meant to correct a mistake. It is to make sure the results look the best they possibly can.

How Hyaluronidase Works
Dissolving lip filler is a quick and effective procedure that effectively removes any existing filler in your lips. This procedure is performed by injecting a solution called hyaluronidase into the area. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that helps to break down and dissolve hyaluronic acid, which is the primary ingredient found in most dermal fillers.
What to Expect When Dissolving Filler
Once you’ve had your lips filled, the dissolving treatment will feel familiar. After preparing your skin by cleansing it, sterilizing the area, and applying a topical numbing agent, a registered nurse will inject small amounts of Hylenex, a hyaluronidase, into the lips. They will then massage the treatment area to help break down the filler. Although there may be some initial swelling, the filler should dissolve in about three days, leaving your lips as they were before any treatment.
