What is hyaluronidase?

Hyaluronidase is a natural substance found in the body, which is collected from either cows or pigs. It is cleaned up to remove animal substances. It may also be produced in a laboratory that recreates it from human albumin sources. This product is routinely used for reversing  hyluronic acid fillers  such as Restylane, Juvederm,  Belotero and not for over-correction  of Radiesse or Silicon implants.

 Hyaluronidase allergic reaction

There is a simple way to know if a patient is allergic to this product,  inject in a small dose under the skin on the arm. If  patient react with an allergic response then it will be clear that he or she are allergic. If he doesn’t react then he are not allergic.  Allergic reaction is more likely, especially if compounded product was use instead of Vitrase .Vitrase is injected into the same area of the tissue as the hyaluronic acid product  was injected previously. It is an enzyme used to break down these products and works fairly quickly. Severe allergic reactions including anaphylaxis have been reported rarely. Allergy to this product should be included in the differential diagnosis when focal erythema and swelling occur after injection.

how long does hyalase take to work?

Hyaluronidase will start to work within 48 hours and have an effect lasting 2 weeks – additional treatments  can be given within 2 weeks of the first treatment for additional dissolution remaining Juvederm or Restylane.

Hyaluronidase side effects

After  injection local irritation, infection, bleeding and bruising  may occur  , however  these side effects are rare and swelling will resolve with time and  edema is not permanent.

hyaluronidase cost

The cost of hyaluronidase will vary depending on the amount used and the areas of treatment.

Swelling after hyalase injection

Swelling after injection to treat excess fillers is normal. This may take several weeks to months to improve, it is a watery liquid and is not as viscous or thick as the gels of Restylane or Juvederm. The swelling from  injection, therefore, is not as much and goes away quickly.

      It is possible for filler to last longer than the time it is “supposed” to. It does stimulate some production of collagen of your own, and it draws water to the area and cause eyelid edema.
      Tear trough corrction is very tricky and challenging ,needs years of experience, knowledge of anatomy and filler rheology.
      I would recommend dissolving it with hyaluronidase as soon as possible.
      Best wishes

  2. Hi, I am 37 years old female and I have 3 months hyaluronic acid cheek fillers which I want to get rid of. I am afraid of hyaluronidase When using hyaluronidase to dissolve a lump, does it only dissolve the lump or is there a risk of it dissolving natural body collagen? I would hate to have one side of my cheek deflated and the other side look good

      Hyaluronidase tend to shrink and dehydrate the skin just after application. However, after several weeks everything return to normal condition.
      Having said that, high dosage of hyaluronidase may damage normal hyaluronic acid in the body and should be avoided. Hyaluronidase does have a tendency to spread but if an appropriate dose is injected, the effect should be limited to the area without any side effects.
