Why do you need to dissolve? If you've had previous filler - we typically will need to dissolve the old filler. Most Clients need a minimum of 3 dissolves before we would re-fill their filler. The reason for this can vary between correction, lip filler migration, and also some fillers not layering or working well with other fillers. In order to avoid lumps from forming and perfect your shape, our Practitioners will need to start fresh by dissolving old filler before injecting new filler. We always ask clients to send in a photo if they have had fillers before - especially if they are traveling to see us.
