What do we mean by dissolving lip fillers?

Two weeks ago, social media queen Kylie Jenner confirmed that she has had her lip fillers dissolved.

Google confirms that the day Jenner released this information, it reached peak popularity on Google Search.

We at SkinViva HQ have decided to explain what it actually means to have your lips fillers dissolved.


Here at SkinViva we are all about looking natural. Our clinicians use the Golden Ratio of 1:1.6 to achieve this.

Dr Adam says

‘If you go outside that proportion or keep them at 1:1 or do the top lip bigger, then we know that the golden ratio doesn’t fit and they start to look a lot less natural’.


3 reasons why you’d have your lip fillers dissolved:

  1. Many are following the Kylie Jenner route because they want a more natural look.
  2. It might be the case that you have gone to a practitioner that you weren’t happy with and want the result reversed.
  3. It may also be down to complications such as lumps in lips or even more seriously, a vascular occlusion.

How to have your lip fillers dissolved?

The main way to have your lip fillers dissolved is by having an injectable enzyme solution called Hyaluronidase injected into the lips.

This will naturally break down Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm.

Our bodies naturally produce this enzyme which is why lip fillers are usually temporary, due to our bodies naturally breaking the fillers down on its own.

The procedure can be carried out easily by a medical professional, however, there is a potential risk of being allergic to the reversible injection.

It is important that your practitioner carries out an allergy test on your arm before proceeded to injection the solution.

The Hyaluronidase injection may also temporarily make your lips look smaller due to dissolving any Hyaluronic acid that is naturally in yours lips. However, this is not a permanent change and they should revert back to their original shape and size.
