When Dermal Filler injections go wrong..
There is an escalating number of practitioners who have had little experience or training in injecting Dermal Fillers, let alone know how to then correct their mistakes.
Therefore it’s little surprise that we are seeing a sharp increase in the number of people coming to us for dermal filler correction or removal after treatments performed by others.
We see both ladies and gentlemen with too much filler, lumpy and uneven texture, filler injected in the wrong place or even a Tyndall effect where the filler is (blueish/grey tinge). In all cases we see people who are left feeling very distressed, with some having ‘lived’ with the problem for months and in several cases years waiting for huge volumes of filler to be broken down naturally.
At Natalia Aesthetics Clinic we understand the distress caused when a treatment goes wrong at the hands of someone in-experienced.

Dermal Filler Removal FAQs
Hyaluronidase (Hyalase used off label), is a prescription only medication that can help dissolve unwanted Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers. Although you may see an immediate improvement, it can take several weeks to work fully. This is an advanced procedure in which Hyalase is used to selectively and precisely dissolve the undesirable fillers. The dermal fillers may have been placed incorrectly, excessively or unevenly.
1. Lips and cheeks. Practitioners who are inexperienced and poorly trained often create overdone lips and cheeks. Lips or cheeks which are uneven / asymmetrical are commonly seen as well. Reversal / correction of dermal fillers can be a key step towards looking normal again. 2. Under-eye filler correction. Under eye fillers (tear toughs) is a very specialised treatment that should be performed with the utmost care and precision. This, unlike more commonly undertaken procedures such as nasolabial folds, is technically a harder and more delicate procedure. Under eye fillers or eye bag fillers as they are also known can take a long time to dissolve. If you feel that you have lumps under your eyes, or excessive bagginess caused by fillers or if you feel that your eye fillers have shifted, then we can correct them and dissolve them effectively.
Following injection into the treated area, the Hyalase acts within minutes to dissolve unwanted fillers and restore the original facial contours. The desired level of correction / reversal can usually be achieved by carefully monitoring the dose of the enzyme, with larger doses resulting in complete elimination of the filler from the injected site.
We can dissolve any brand of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Belotero, Perlane, and etc.
There are very few reported side effects with hyaluronidase, slight bruising being the most common (as with any injections). This is usually minimal and can be covered effectively with make up. Localised allergic reactions to the enzyme can occur. This enzyme is not recommended for patients with a history of allergy to bee venom.
The cost of this procedure starts from £150.
It is likely that you may not need more than one treatment. This depends on the extent of the filler and the volume of excess filler that we are trying to dissolve, you may need another treatment between 3 and 5 days later. This may incur further cost.
