Dissolving Unwanted Filler

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme used to dissolve unwanted injectable fillers that are structurally are hyaluronic acid types of fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Belotera or Voluma. It is most frequently used to remove unwanted filler, example: too much filler has been placed or the filler is lumpy, etc.


The most common areas: lips, cheeks or under eyes - tear trough arear that is lumpy or discolored. It can also be used in emergency situations if filler is inadvertently injected in an artery or vein.


How does hyaluronidase work?

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid, a sugar that is present in the connective tissues. Sold under the brand names Hydase, Hylenex and Vitrase, hyaluronidase enzymes are highly effective in dissolving hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers. When injected into the affected area(s) they cause the hyaluronic acid to break down at an accelerated pace, so that you don’t have to put up with an unwanted appearance for months on end.
You don’t have to wait a specific amount of time after dermal filler treatment before receiving treatment with hyaluronidase; the enzyme can be administered right after an injection of a hyaluronic acid-based filler product, if need be, so long as the injection site has stabilized.

What is the cost of Hyluronidase injection?

An injection round may cost around $300 to $500, depending on the amount you need. Note that you may need more than one round and potential large amounts of hyaluronidase to fully dissolve the filler.

What are possible side effects of injecting Hyluronidase?

Most commonly you can expect localized redness, swelling, occasional bruising. Patients should be aware it could potentially result in removal of a greater amount of filler than desired, and also carries a risk of causing allergic reaction due to the animal products it contains. To prevent chances of allergic reaction Dr. Yagudin may offer skin test before full treatment.

How long will it take for hyaluronidase to dissolve fillers?

It may take anywhere between 30 minutes to one day.
