Overview

While lip fillers are becoming increasingly popular due to the non-permanent and incredible results that can be achieved by the right hands, having the option to reverse the treatment is important, not just to make sure you get perfect results, but also to keep you safe.

Doctor Nyla has campaigned for many years for increased regulation in the aesthetics industry and regularly speaks out about safety in beauty. Currently, to inject dermal fillers and lip fillers, practitioners don’t need to have a medical degree or any relevant medical training, and there are no regulations about the environment fillers are administered in either! This has resulted in a wave of unregulated practitioners offering dermal fillers at lower prices than safe, regulated, doctor-led clinics. However, while these back-street practitioners can seem like good value, they are rarely safe and you might be putting yourself at risk. 

Practitioners who are poorly trained – or sometimes not even trained at all – are far more likely to give you poor results or even inject in a way that is dangerous to your health! For example:

  • Poor placement of filler can block veins or arteries, leading to swelling, infection, and even permanent tissue death (necrosis) if the filler isn’t removed in time.
  • If filler blocks tissue around the eyes, there is a risk of permanent blindness.
  • If the filler is injected too close to the surface of your lip, bumps and hard lumps can appear, making your lips look misshapen and uneven. 
  • Filler that is administered incorrectly can migrate over time, moving above your lip line and making you look swollen in all the wrong places. 
  • Overfilling can lead to bruising, pain, discolouration and raw or sensitive lips.

As these ‘back-street’ clinics become more and more popular, Doctor Nyla has seen an increasing number of patients coming to her from all over the country to dissolve their lip fillers and asking her to give them back their natural lips in a clinic that is safe and with a doctor that knows what she’s doing. Medispa Cheshire has even been awarded Clinic of the Year by the Safety in Beauty Diamond Awards, showing that we are committed to the safety of our clients.

Lip filler dissolving can also be used by patients who want to reduce the volume of their lips and go back to the more natural look, as famously seen on Kylie Jenner.

What Is Lip Filler Dissolving Treatment?


Lip filler dissolving is a treatment that can be used to quickly break down dermal filler safely and comfortably. The treatment works by injecting hyaluronidase into the lips, which is an enzyme that exists naturally in your body already. When you get lip fillers normally, low levels of naturally occurring hyaluronidase are the reason they break down over time. If you need your fillers dissolved and removed more quickly, we simply inject safe, more concentrated doses of hyaluronidase to break down the hyaluronic acid in the filler formula, which is then carried away by your body’s own natural systems.

While dermal fillers can be bought by almost anyone, and treatment carried out in unsafe environments, hyaluronidase has to be prescribed by a medical professional. Doctor Nyla highly recommends that you should only ever have lip filler treatment if you know the clinic has hyaluronidase on hand in case of emergencies.

As one of the country’s leading aesthetic medicine providers, Doctor Nyla has worked with A&E Consultants from the Manchester Royal Infirmary to help treat conditions in patients that have been caused by filler complications and complications from other aesthetic treatments, so is an expert at dissolving lip fillers, and an advocate for increased safety in the aesthetics industry.

Our Process


At Doctor Nyla Medispa, we believe in getting safe, beautiful results the first time. As Doctor Nyla is a fully trained and qualified doctor, she has a deep understanding of the anatomy of face and lips and knows how to correct any complications. An extremely skilled injector, Doctor Nyla utilises techniques that are as safe and painless as possible. 

Customer care and safety are at the heart of Doctor Nyla’s practice to make sure that your results are absolutely flawless. When you come to the clinic for lip filler dissolving treatment, we’ll take pictures of your lips to keep track of your condition and give you all the information you need to make the right choice for you.

There is a small chance of allergic reaction when using hyaluronidase to dissolve lip fillers, which Doctor Nyla will discuss with you before treatment and patch test to ensure your safety. Lip filler dissolving is a quick treatment, and the injection process generally only takes around five minutes. We also offer numbing cream for the lips to reduce discomfort, and this takes around 20 minutes to be effective.

Hyaluronidase comes in powder or liquid form, which is then mixed with a saline solution and injected into the area with the filler. The results of lip filler dissolving with hyaluronidase actually occur within only a few minutes of injection, making it effective for time-sensitive and emergency cases where filler was previously injected dangerously or improperly. However it does also cause slight swelling, so you won’t be able to see results until around 24 hours after treatment, once the swelling has gone down.

Aftercare Advice

Aftercare Advice

There are very few serious side effects to lip filler dissolving treatment using hyaluronidase, though swelling from 24-72 hours after treatment is very common. You might also experience some slight bruising after treatment due to the injections – this is all normal. However, if you’re still experiencing swelling after three to four days after treatment, you should contact the clinic. There is a small chance of an allergic reaction with lip filler dissolving treatment, though side effects can be severe. Doctor Nyla will carry out a patch test before treatment to help make sure that your treatment is safe, but if you experience any common allergy symptoms, such as itching, pain, shortness of breath, or if you start to have an allergic reaction you should seek medical attention immediately.

After a few days, your lips should be returned to their natural state and you should wait at least two weeks before having any other lip filler treatments. This gives the lips time to heal and allows the full dose of hyaluronidase to be broken down by the body, so that when you get new filler, it isn’t dissolved immediately.
