Oops! You got a filler, but it didn’t turn out the way you hoped. You’re worried — will you be stuck with this appearance for months or years?
We have good news for you: Most fillers can be dissolved! If you don’t like your post-filler appearance, you can get it back to where it used to be.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero fillers can be removed with a hyaluronidase dissolver. Fillers made from other materials aren’t reversible unless you wait for them to dissolve naturally, get surgery, or add more filler to even out the effect.
If you want to get rid of your HA filler now, your provider can inject hyaluronidase to jumpstart the dissolving process. It won’t take long to get your face or body back to where you started.

Your med spa provider can’t do much to reverse liquid silicone, Sculptra, or Radiesse fillers. Sculptra and Radiesse are collagen-boosting treatments that fade on their own after a year or two, but injected silicone is permanent and can only be removed with surgery.
If you are worried about your filler outcome, we recommend sticking with FDA-approved HA fillers. These fillers are safe and easy to dissolve at any time.
FAQs About Getting Your Fillers Dissolved
Can You Completely Get Your Fillers Dissolved, Or Just Partially?
Yes, you can completely dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers. The filler should dissolve almost immediately, and the skin in the surrounding area should settle after a few days to a couple of weeks at most.
You can also partially dissolve a filler if you don’t want to get rid of it completely. Partial dissolving can be a great way to achieve a more subtle effect.
What Happens to the Dissolved Filler Material?
When hyaluronic acid fillers dissolve, the filler liquifies. Then the surrounding lymph nodes clear out the liquid. You can thank your lymph nodes for their help with getting rid of your unwanted filler!
How Long Does It Take For Fillers to Dissolve?
Most fillers will dissolve slowly and naturally 6-24 months after you get them injected. If that’s too long of a wait, you can get a filler dissolving treatment.
With hyaluronidase filler dissolving injections, HA fillers can dissolve almost immediately. The surrounding skin will take a few days to a couple of weeks to fully restore itself, though.
What If I Want to Redo My Filler Instead of Dissolving It?
If you want to redo your filler completely, you can re-inject the area a couple of weeks after you dissolve the original filler. You can also partially dissolve the original filler if you want a more subtle version of the original effect.
Can Getting Your Fillers Dissolved Go Wrong?
Like any other treatment, dissolving fillers is not 100% risk-free, especially if you have allergies. Your provider should test you for an allergic reaction and inform you of any risks before you move forward with the treatment.
However, the chance of a negative outcome is low, and filler dissolving injections are considered to be very safe. You can reduce the risk of a negative outcome by getting treatments from an experienced, fully qualified medical provider, such as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
Will My Face Go Back to Normal After Fillers?
You can relax! Yes, your face should return to normal after your filler dissolves. This is true whether you wait for it to dissolve naturally or get it dissolved early with hyaluronidase.
If you don’t want to return to your old appearance after dermal fillers, you can get touch-up appointments. We usually recommend touch-ups for HA fillers every 3-6 months. You can keep your filler appearance as long as you like.
