Remove unwanted dermal filler quickly and painlessly

What is hyaluronidase?

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that acts as a dispersion agent, breaking down hyaluronic acid through hydrolysis. It’s a naturally occurring enzyme that is purified to dissolve dermal fillers. This enzyme naturally occurs in our skin but can be injected at higher concentrations in order to rapidly remove unwanted filler.

Sometimes, when dermal filler is misplaced, wrongly injected and causing complications, or over-injected, it’s visible to the naked eye. The ‘duck lips’ is a prime example of this, when it’s visible that someone is experiencing a puffy upper lip or a constant protruded pout due to the migration of filler into the gum line and above the lip tissue. Alongside the fact that this looks unnatural, and is not the desired look for most patients, it can also have implications and cause complications in the future.

In some cases, filler needs to be dissolved due to complications that occur. Adverse reactions, lumps are a small risk associated with dermal filler treatment. Necrosis, where filler has been wrongly injected into a blood vessel causing circulation loss and death of the surrounding tissue in that area, is a serious issue.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When considering Aesthetic treatments we want you to have a safe journey. The following information should allow you to know what to expect.

If you decide to go ahead with removing fillers, here’s a general idea of what to expect:

  1. First, your care team will do a patch test by applying a small amount of hyaluronidase on your arm to check for an allergy or sensitivity.
  2. If you don’t have any adverse reactions, they’ll clean your lips and apply numbing cream to the area to minimize discomfort from the needle.
  3. If you don’t want your fillers completely dissolved, they may first dilute the hyaluronidase so it doesn’t remove your entire lip augmentation.
  4. They’ll inject hyaluronidase into different parts of your lips, with the goal of getting the solution as close to the HA as possible.
  5. Once finished, they’ll clean your lips once more and apply aftercare balm or cream.

After the patch test, the entire process takes just a few minutes.

It’s generally safe to have lip fillers dissolved by a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner

Still, as with any procedure, you’ll want to keep a few potential risks in mind.

There’s a small chance hyaluronidase will cause an allergic reaction. According to 2020 researchTrusted Source, the risk of allergic reactions is typically very low: between 0.05 percent to 0.69 percent. Fewer than 0.1 percent of people experience itching and swelling.

That said, you have a greater chance of an allergic reaction with a dose of more than 100,000 IU. The rate of allergic reactions increases to just over 31 percent with a dose of 200,000 IU.

Hyaluronidase may also interact with certain medications, including some anxiety medications and antihistamines.

Another potential side effect to consider: Hyaluronidase could potentially break down too much of the filler, as well as your body’s own HA. Consequently, you might lose more volume than you want and notice some unevenness in your lips. Your body will eventually produce more HA, but this can take a few months.

It’s important to tell your provider about any underlying medical conditions you have before getting HA fillers. This procedure may not be appropriate if you:

  • have a history of blood-clotting issues
  • smoke
  • have diabetes
  • currently take immunosuppressive medications
  • are going through an active oral herpes infection
  • are pregnant or nursing

Even good candidates for HA lip injections may experience side effects from this cosmetic procedure. Speak with your provider about all of the possible risks before getting treatment.

Common side effects

Common side effects of HA lip fillers include:

  • temporary redness or purplish tone, and swelling of the lips
  • mild bruising and bleeding around the injection sites
  • temporary bumps or lumps that may arise around the injection sites

Any temporary pain or swelling usually goes away within 1 to 2 days after your procedure.

Uncommon side effects that should be seen by a doctor

You should report the following uncommon, but potentially serious side effects of HA injections to your doctor right away:

  • blisters around the lips
  • numbness or bluish coloring of the lips
  • severe swelling that won’t go away
  • vision changes
  • symptoms of an infection, like increased swelling, pigment changes, and drainage
