When done right, hyaluronic based dermal fillers look and feel great. But what if you have an unwanted side effect and the fillers don’t look the way they should? Hyaluronidase will save the day (and you)!
Getting fillers is one of the safest and most convenient ways to enhance your appearance. Perhaps you don’t have naturally voluminous lips or you have begun to notice wrinkles and fine lines, both natural signs of aging. Since celebrities made fillers popular, everyone has been starting to get them- even your coworkers and best friends.
But what happens when you’re not pleased with the results? How long does it take for lip fillers to dissolve? Is there any way to reverse a filler?
Perhaps one of the best parts of hyaluronic based dermal fillers is that they can always be reversed. No matter whether you’re not pleased with the final results or you made the mistake of going to someone who was inexperienced, you can always have the fillers dissolved with a treatment called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase NYC is a naturally occurring enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid, getting rid of the filler and reverting your appearance to its baseline state. It is completely safe, and you can be in and out of the clinic in no time. If you want, you can even get fillers again in a few days!
Our professionals at Skinly Aesthetics are here to do everything they can to make sure that you are happy with the way you look. You can rely on us for hyaluronidase injections to dissolve fillers and help you become more confident in your appearance!
Common Areas for Hylenex
- Dissolving filler in face: People often get filler in their face in areas such as the forehead or chin. If you don’t like the way it looks, it is always possible to dissolve the filler with hyaluronidase.
- Hyaluronidase under eyes: It is common to use filler to eliminate the hollows under your eyes, but if you are not pleased with the results, dissolving filler under eyes is simple.
- Nose filler dissolved: Liquid nose jobs are a popular alternative to rhinoplasty, but sometimes, a smaller nose simply doesn’t suit your facial structure. You can rely on us at Skinly Aesthetics for dissolving Juvederm with hyaluronidase.
- Dissolving filler in cheeks: Our cheeks tend to lose volume with age, which is why many people opt for filler. But if the results aren’t quite what you expected, dissolving fillers in cheeks is the way to go.
- Dissolving lip filler: Getting lip filler dissolved is one of the most popular uses for hyaluronidase. Some people don’t like the way filler made their lips look, whereas others simply went too overboard. Our professionals can help you with having lip filler dissolved.
Although we often regard fillers as being a magical, miracle way to alter our appearances and give us an Instagram-worthy look, sometimes, fillers just don’t look the way we want them to. Sometimes, people’s anatomy will play a huge role in the effectiveness of fillers, which means that fillers can move around or the patient can experience lumps and bumps. All of our practitioners here at Skinly Aesthetics are licensed and qualified to carry out the procedure, so you don’t have to worry about potential complications that resulted from prior unsuccessful experience. However, anatomy sometimes can play a huge role in the way fillers turn out, which neither you nor the professional injecting the filler can have any control over. Luckily, the majority of injectable dermal fillers are completely safe and made of a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in our bodies. Some of the most popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers that we use at Skinly Aesthetics include Juvederm and Restylane.
So what is hyaluronidase? In cases where the patient wants to dissolve the hyaluronic acid fillers, we use hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid and available under various brand names. Our doctor at Skinly Aesthetics will simply inject the hyaluronidase into the areas where you have the unwanted fillers. When the hyaluronidase is injected, it will break down the hyaluronic acid rapidly. Hyaluronidase remains in the tissues for up to 3 days, so your filler appointment can be scheduled at least 3 days after the dissolving procedure. Very importantly, hyaluronidase will only dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler, not the hyaluronic acid that is naturally occurring in your skin.
We frequently get asked how much it costs to dissolve filler. However, the cost will generally depend on how many rounds of the hyaluronidase you will need to see the final results.
Hyaluronidase Before and After
The beautiful and stunning fillers that we think of may not have the same effect on everyone. It is perfectly fine to not be pleased with the final results of your filler. In a worst-case scenario, perhaps you’ve gone to someone inexperienced who went overboard with the filler. Luckily, fillers can be reversed with hyaluronidase. Once hyaluronidase is injected, it will start to dissolve the hyaluronic acid fillers immediately. Many people notice their results immediately, but you generally should notice the area going back to the way it was before the fillers within 24 hours. The best part is that the fillers can be done again in just a few days!
Frequently Asked Questions About Hyaluronidase Injections
How long does the procedure take?
The injection of hyaluronidase to dissolve filler is another cosmetic procedure that is often dubbed a “lunchtime procedure” due to how quickly it takes to administer. Generally, you should be in and out of the clinic in 30 minutes.
Do lip fillers dissolve quickly?
Yes! Some patients claim to notice results in as little as one hour, although it is more common to notice these results within 24 hours. However, you should expect to see the area take on its final shape in 1-2 days.
How many sessions are necessary?
Typically, patients only need one session to get the results they need, but there are some cases in which patients come back for 2 sessions. This is up to our professional discretion. When you come to Skinly Aesthetics for your consultation, our professional will evaluate the problem and give you a more exact answer.
How long do the results last?
Hyaluronidase injections are permanent. So, you would need to get dermal fillers again if you would like to enhance your appearance.
What is the recovery time like?
Since hyaluronidase injections are a minimally invasive procedure, you will be in and out of our clinic quickly and you will be able to return to your daily activities. The procedure does not require any downtime.
How should patients prepare for hyaluronidase?
Since filler dissolving hyaluronidase NYC is a safe and minimally invasive procedure, there is very little that you will have to worry about before, during, and after treatment. However, you should come into our clinic without makeup, and avoid alcohol, aspirin, Ibuprofen, and some dietary supplements because they can cause bruising or swelling.
How much does filler dissolver cost?
Dissolving hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Revanesse with hyaluronidase enzyme can cost anywhere from $600 to $1500 in New York. The cost is determined by multiple variables including area of injections, the amount of medicine used, the experience of your health care provider and the overall complexity of the case. After your personal consultation at Skinly Aesthetics a custom plan will be created to address the issues related to your prior filler injections.
What is the hyaluronidase aftercare like?
Dissolving dermal fillers is a quick procedure that will enable you to continue with your regular activities as soon as you leave the clinic. However, it’s a good idea to avoid wearing makeup near the site of injection for 12 hours. You also should avoid activities that cause swelling, such as excessive alcohol and rigorous exercise.
Is it safe?
Yes. Hyaluronidase is a safe treatment that only targets hyaluronic acid filler. It doesn’t do anything to other skin layers and doesn’t destroy your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
Is the treatment painful?
Hylenex injections are not painful at all, but some patients may feel a slight pricking sensation as the solution is being injected. We always provide our patients with the option of a topical anesthetic in case your skin is particularly sensitive.
What are the hyaluronidase side effects?
Luckily, hyaluronidase is a naturally occurring enzyme, so there are very few dissolving lip filler risks, if any at all. Many patients only notice a little bit of itching, redness, tenderness, or swelling at the site of injection, but this will go away in only a matter of hours.
Who should not get hyaluronidase injections?
Although it is completely safe, there are some people who should not get the treatment. It is not recommended for people who are on certain medications or who have certain conditions. In addition, hyaluronidase is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have open wounds and cold sores. It is also possible to have an allergy to hyaluronidase. Our professional will inject a small amount of the solution and monitor it for a few minutes to see if you have an allergic reaction in case you have never had experience with hyaluronidase before. Be sure to let our professionals know about any underlying conditions or medicines that you are taking.
