Removal of Permanent Fillers
Fillers are used very widely in aesthetic medicine because they allow relatively quick and safe restoration of a young appearance. Most fillers are able to reduce wrinkles and furrows in less than 30 minutes, and the results of the treatments last from 4 months to over a year. The effects are in many cases spectacular and allow you to restore youthful, healthy appearance and radiant complexion, but often the effects are not satisfactory due to improperly performed surgery.
Treatment with fillers is quick, relatively simple and easily available. However, like all products used in aesthetic medicine, they carry some risk of complications. Possible side effects include primarily allergic reactions and the formation of subcutaneous bumps. Sometimes there is also a blue skin discoloration, called the Tyndall effect. Discoloration may persist for several months. In rare cases, incorrect filler administration may lead to tissue necrosis. Isolated cases of nerve damage have also been registered.
One of the most popular fillers are preparations based on hyaluronic acid. Each of the preparations available on the market works slightly differently and allows you to achieve different results. Side effects are rare, these mainly include redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site. Sometimes the preparation appears as subcutaneous lumps, which usually disappear on their own over time. The duration of the hyaluronic acid effect may last from several months to even two years. Some studies suggest that repeated injections of hyaluronic acid may stimulate the body to produce collagen, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. An additional advantage is the possibility of using an enzyme – hyaluronidase, to dissolve hyaluronic acid with undesirable effects.
In our Clinic, we deal with the removal of permanent fillers using hyaluronidase, which involves injecting a specific area of the skin with a preparation containing an enzyme, using a thin needle. The administration of hyaluronidase causes the degradation of previously injected hyaluronic acid, and to a small extent also hyaluronic acid present physiologically in the body. One time use a small volume of hyaluronidase, and if necessary – repeat the procedure. The procedure itself lasts several minutes and must be preceded by an allergic test. The first effects are noticeable immediately after the end of the procedure, but the evaluation of the final effect can take place only after 72 hours, because this is the duration of hyaluronidase. In addition, a small swelling may occur immediately after the procedure, which will make it impossible to evaluate the effects.
By using the services of aesthetic medicine specialists from our Clinic, you can be sure that the treatment will be performed by a professional, using the highest quality products, in sterile conditions.
