Kylie Jenner's famous pouty lips are no more.

Last week, the youngest Kardashian revealed in a comment on Instagram that she had her lip fillers removed.

Fan - Bit - Picture - Friend - Anastasia

After one fan noted that she looked a bit different in a picture posted with friend Anastasia Karanikolao, the 20-year-old replied: 'I got rid of all my filler' accompanied by two wide-eye emojis and one smiley face emoji.

Marketed as Vitrase, the injection is comprised of this enzyme to break down or correct lip fillers.

'It - HA - Product - Someone - Fillers

'It does need to be injected, but it immediately dissolves the HA product if someone regrets lips fillers, has the lips over-filled, or if someone develops bumps,' he said.

'Someone can receive one injection and the product is all gone.'
