What is Hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidases, a family of enzymes that are able to degrade hyaluronic acid (HA), are employed in medicine to increase drug diffusion and reverse the effects of HA filler injections.
Why dissolve filler?
Clients usually choose to dissolve filler if it has been poorly injected, or if they have lumps and uneven areas. Sometimes clients decide that they don't want these areas filled anymore.
How long does it take to work?
Hyaluronidase works very quickly, with most of the effect taking place within 24 hours. You should be able to see defined improvement and less filler in the area injected, beginning within a few hours. After a few days if you still have areas that need correction, you can come back for another session, free of charge.
Who is suitable for this kind of treatment?
You must be over the age of 18 to have any injectable treatments, if you look younger than 21 you will be asked for ID. You may not be suitable for this treatment if you have;
- Allergies to the ingredients that are found in Hyaluronidase.
We always advise on a patch test a week before your treatment to dissolve the filler.
Is there any down time?
Whilst you can usually get back to your normal activities straight away, we recommend avoiding alcohol, smoking and vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours. It is completely normal to experience some redness, bruising, very mild bleeding, swelling and tenderness after the procedure for 2 - 3 days.
Refilling the area
If you decide to refill the area once the filler has completely dissolved (we recommend waiting 1-2 weeks) we offer the dissolving treatment free of charge should you rebook with Hera Aesthetics.
