Could the filler I had injected disappear in two weeks?

I previously had filler in the nose to mouth lines after 2weeks it completely disappeared, after going back to the provider they said my body had absorbed the filler. They repeated the procedure and it happened again, I didn't return because the pain was intense during procedure. Have you heard of this before, I do get dehydrated quite a lot

Fillers are not all created equally, especially in Europe and other parts of the world where there are almost 100 hyaluronic acid fillers (not to mention all the other ones) made by various companies, and with many of the products being substandard.  It’s a scarey filler world out there right now, especially outside the U.S.   It makes me thankful for our FDA.

If you had the treatment done in the U.S., do you know what exactly was injected?   It would be very unusual for you to absorb the Restylane or Juvederm family of products that quickly.  Also did you go to a reputable office?   Some links that may help.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
