Dermal Fillers Correction Tunbridge Wells
Hyalase (Hyaluronidase) – Filler Removal & Correction Tunbridge Wells
What can be done if the patient is very unhappy with the results of their hyaluronic acid gel filler?
Occasionally dermal fillers do not give you the effect you were hoping for. In this instance we can dissolve/remove them with enzyme injections. With Hyaluronidase, we can correct and reverse the effect of hyaluronic acid based filler treatments that have gone wrong, where too much product is used in the lines or folds or the result leaves you with asymmetry, lumpy texture or you are just unhappy with the effect. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are normally metabolised by the body over a period of 3 to 24 months, depending on the type used and the area treated. We understand how upsetting it can be for those who have suffered from undesirable results. We see patients from other clinics who come to us for correction. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that causes the breakdown of hyaluronic acid. When the enzyme is injected it dissolves the synthetic hyaluronic acid filler. Clients report minimal discomfort during the treatment, but it can sting a little, so lidocaine is used to minimise this sensation. Hyaluronidase works very quickly, with most of the effect taking place within 24 hours. You should be able to see definite improvement and less filler in the injected area in just a few hours after treatment. As your safety is our priority, it is very important to have a test patch with Hyaluronidase. This can be done just half an hour prior to the full procedure to ensure there is no adverse effect or reaction.
You may only need 1 treatment. However, depending on the the volume of excess filler that we are trying to dissolve, you may need another treatment 3- 5 days later.
We will schedule your follow up appointment to make sure you are happy with the result. Hyaluronidase and additional dermal filler injections cannot be done at the same time. We advise you to wait for a few days, allowing the area to completely settle, before considering a new dermal filler treatment.
