There are various reasons for the dissolution of a filler: an unnatural result, incorrect injection technique or an inadequate preparation. As each person and organism is unique, there may be migration of the preparation into the superficial layers of the skin where it starts to show - for example, on the mucous membrane of the lips or under the eyes. Whether it is an unnatural result or discomfort caused by incorrect technique, hyaluronidase can help.
What is hyaluronidase? Hyaluronidase is a protein enzyme that is able to penetrate and dissolve hyaluronic acid molecules.
Hyaluronidase only works for dissolving hyaluronic acid-based filler injections (e.g. Revolax, Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, etc.) and does not work for preparations that do not contain hyaluronic acid (e.g. Radiesse, Sculptra, etc.).
The effect of the preparation dissolving can be seen after about 2-7 days. The substance may not dissolve completely in a single procedure and a repeat procedure may be necessary after 7 days.
Swelling, redness and bruising, bruising, bruising or haematoma may occur after the procedure. A recovery period of up to one week after the procedure must be taken into account.
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Allergy to any of the components of the preparation
It is not recommended to do the procedure immediately before important events as bruising and bruising may occur after the procedure.
Dissolving a filler is not completely safe. There is a risk that the substance may cause an allergic reaction. Before the procedure, we do a skin test on the arm and wait for no allergic reaction. If necessary, a special anaesthetic cream is used to numb the skin.
If you want to have a new injection in the same area, we recommend waiting at least 2 weeks.
up to 45 min.
After the procedure:
There may be a small amount of redness or swelling at the injection site, which will disappear within a few hours to a day. You can resume most daily activities immediately after treatment, but we recommend:
- Do not touch the area to be injected and wash for 2h.
- Avoid wearing make-up for at least 6 hours after the procedure.
- Avoid saunas, swimming pools and heavy exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours.
- Avoid tanning, sunbeds and self-tanning creams for 1 week.
- Avoid other strong facial procedures for 2 weeks (chemical peels, laser procedures, etc.).
- Protect your skin from UV rays for 2 weeks (sunscreen SPF50).
