10 Apr Dissolving Dermal Filler, What You Need to Know
Friends star Courteney Cox has recently come back into the headlines as she revealed she’s had her facial fillers dissolved to restore her natural appearance.
Designed to reinstate volume to the face and undo signs of ageing, injectable dermal fillers are a popular facial rejuvenation option.
But after becoming heavily reliant on facial fillers over a number years, Cox realised she had started to look “fake”, which prompted her to have her fillers professionally dissolved.
“I feel better because I look like myself,” the 53-year-old television star confessed.
“I think that I now look more like the person that I was [before having fillers].”
Administered by a doctor or registered nurse, this prescription-only medical procedure helps to erase undesirable cosmetic results including unsightly lumps or facial irregularity. Whilst this is a great option for many, it is important to understand that it is not as simple as injecting and dissolving; the longer the filler has been in the patient, the more it integrates into the body’s tissue and is often more difficult to remove.
Following treatment, the dissolving medication may still be active in the area for up to five days, so patients must refrain from any further filler treatments during that time.
While we can dissolve certain fillers, prevention is always better than cure, which is why we recommend clients do their research prior to undergoing fillers and book in to a clinic that doesn’t prescribe unnecessary or over the top treatments. Its important to look for a clinic that encourages consultation prior to any appointment going ahead, so that realistic expectations are set for both the practitioner and patient.
With over 30 years of combined experience, our team of cosmetic experts offer dissolving treatments to clients who have had too much filler injected and wish to regain a more natural look.
