Recently, we have seen celebrities choosing to dissolve their filler as a result of overfilling their face and no longer having the natural look they once had. More celebrities such as Blac Chyna, Simon Cowell and Charlotte Crosby are opening up about dissolving their filler, either because they went too far or wanted to revert from their plumped appearance.
When used correctly, dermal fillers can be an effective, versatile anti-ageing treatment that can contour the face, enhance small lips and soften wrinkles. At Omniya Clinic, we always ensure our client’s needs are met as naturally as possible, rather than resulting in an over-plumped appearance. While we believe less is more when it comes to filler, there still lies a modern obsession with overfilling facial features which is known as “filler fatigue”.
In this blog, we’ll address what filler fatigue is, how you can avoid it and address the process of filler dissolving.
What is Filler Fatigue?
Dermal filler is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments for insecurities like thin lips, deep marionette lines or smile lines and other signs of ageing. When hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are excessively used, however, it can lead to over-plumpness and puffiness. These undesirable results are known as filler fatigue and are often the breaking point before a person turns to dissolve their filler.
When your face is overfilled with dermal filler, you are at risk of creating a ‘pillow-face’ appearance that is puffy, asymmetric and shapeless. Clients will undergo multiple millilitres of dermal filler injected into their skin, creating a fullness or heaviness that was not there before they started their treatment(s). Like all things, filler can become an obsession for some. It is filler fatigue, along with other reasons, that is why so many celebrities are turning back to being natural.
How to Avoid Filler Fatigue
Whether you are new to filler or a repeat client, we always advise you to research clinics before going ahead. Only a trained practitioner will know how to carry out your treatment safely and naturally and will never guide you into overfilling.
While filler can be considered a luxury, we do not recommend going to clinics that offer questionably low prices or have deals available with inexperienced practitioners. Dermal filler is a safe treatment, but poor misuse from unregulated clinics can lead to risks like allergic reactions, overfilling, product migration and asymmetric fullness.
Plus, it is worth remembering that fillers only need to be topped up every 6 to 12 months depending on the amount of filler first used. Try to stick within this time period and avoid getting it done more frequently than this, as it can easily lead to unintentional overfilling.
At Omniya Clinic London, our aesthetic clinicians are fully qualified and trained in delivering natural filler results every time. We work to restore youth in each client’s complexion by enhancing the natural shape your facial features provide. During a one-to-one consultation with your practitioner, you will have time to discuss your desires, questions and expectations of your treatment. After a thorough evaluation, we will go through the treatment options available and help you achieve the goals you have in place.
How is Filler Dissolved?
Reverting the effects of filler fatigue is possible by dissolving it with a naturally occurring enzyme called hyaluronidase. This treatment can only dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers such as Teosyal and Juvederm, which are both non-permanent and naturally break down over time.
Hyaluronidase will remove the HA from your face or lips, and return your complexion to its original appearance. Dissolving lip filler is a relatively painless procedure and will only take up to 20 to 30 minutes to complete. It may, however, need to be done across multiple sessions depending on how much filler has been injected into the area previously.
