IF you’ve been using fillers for a while, you know exactly how easy it is to forget your look without it.
When Daniella Bolton booked an appointment with her local esthetician last month, the 24-year-old planned to inject 0.5ml of filler into her lips.
But as her date turns around, Daniella decides to go back to the basics and erase it all so she can start over at a later date.
Before the esthetician injected the enzyme into her lips, she performed a patch test on Daniella to check that she wouldn’t react to hyaluronidase – an enzyme that can dissolve fillers.
She explained: “My skin is a bit red but I have very sensitive skin anyway so I didn’t think about it.
“I’ve had injections in my lips. They do get bigger pretty quickly but obviously when you melt the lips they’ll be pretty big too. Though I’m not sure they’ll be as big as what I did!”

The esthetician told Daniella that her lip swelling should be gone within an hour or so.
But after she left the salon, Daniella claims they started getting bigger with each passing minute – until they became 20 TIMES their normal size.
She said: “My reaction was horrible. They looked like hot dogs lips.
“I don’t know if I am exaggerating but I would say they are about 20 times their normal size.
“It was scary. I was shocked because I’ve never seen my lips so big before.”
Naturally, the first thing Daniella did when she got home to Edinbrugh was call her esthetician.
She said: “I sent her a message on Instagram and she called me right away asking if I was feeling all right and if I was starting to have a hard time getting to A&E because it was obvious that was the time. something is not right.
“My lips were huge and I was also starting to feel a bit unwell. I was quite hot and I explained it to the doctors.”
After running to the hospital, Daniella was given eight steroid pills that reduced swelling within half an hour.

“I’ve only seen it happen once before and never really heard of it. It’s not really what’s being talked about and obviously it can be quite dangerous as well.
“It can be really serious and I’m pretty lucky my throat doesn’t close or anything because I know it can happen after reading it.
“It’s just to make people aware that these reactions can happen and just because you get a patch test doesn’t mean it’s 100% going to be okay.”
