If injected correctly, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers look and feel amazing. However, there can be some unwanted side effects or undesirable results, if injected improperly or by an inexperienced injector. So what do you do if that’s the case? Hyaluronidase is a game changer here, and can save you from the filler you wish you hadn’t gotten.
One of the safest and most convenient ways to improve your appearance is getting fillers. Maybe you don’t naturally possess voluminous lips, or maybe you are starting to see signs of the first wrinkles and fine lines on your face that give away your age. Here come the fillers. Fillers have been the “go to” for celebrities for a long time now, which is part of the reason they became popular and widespread among the general population. Nowadays, almost every other person has undergone a filler treatment.
But what if you are dissatisfied with the results that the filler gave you? Is there a way to bring back your original looks?
One of the most significant advantages of getting a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler is that the results are reversible. You may be dissatisfied with the final look of the filler or have found that the administering injector lacked experience – whatever the reason behind you being unsatisfied with the end result, you can always dissolve the filler with hyaluronidase injections. Hyaluronidase NYC is a naturally occurring enzyme that eliminates the filler by breaking down the hyaluronic acid, bringing back your original appearance. Hyaluronidase is absolutely harmless and only takes minutes to be completed. In case you want to get fillers again, you’ll be able to do it within a couple of days after your hyaluronidase injections.
Our professionals at Miracle Face are here to do everything they can to make sure you are happy with the way you look. You can rely on us for hyaluronidase injections to dissolve fillers and bring back your confidence.
Common Areas for Hyaluronidase
- Face: One of the most common areas people get fillers is in the face. Common facial fillers include those in the forehead or chin. In case you don’t like the final look on your face after getting the filler, you can always go for hyaluronidase to dissolve it.
- Under the eyes: Another common application of a filler is filling in the hollows under your eyes. However, if the results do not satisfy you, hyaluronidase can easily reverse them.
- Nose: Liquid nose jobs have come to replace a traditional surgical rhinoplasty in many cases. Because this is a change to your nose, which happens to be in the middle of your face, in some cases the result does not turn out the way that you had expected. If this is your case, you can trust Miracle Face to dissolve Juvederm or any other hyaluronic acid based filler in your nose with Hyaluronidase.
- Cheeks: One of the first face areas that gives in to aging is the cheeks. They lose volume and become saggy with time. This is why many people choose to get fillers in the cheeks. In the event of dissatisfying results, dissolving fillers in the cheeks is the way to go.
- Lips: One of the most common applications of hyaluronidase is dissolving lip fillers. Sometimes people don’t feel confident about the way their lips look with a filler, in other cases lips get overdone. Our professionals at Miracle Face are determined to help you bring the original look on your lips back by dissolving the filler.
We are more prone to thinking that fillers are a magical bullet, a miraculous substance that transforms the way we look and makes us more Instagramy. In reality though, fillers do not always look the way that we expected them to. People’s anatomical specificities can play a decisive role in how effective the filler is, meaning that sometimes fillers can move around and result in lumps and bumps. However, our practitioners at Miracle Face have both the licenses and qualifications to perform the procedure in a highly professional manner, meaning that there is no need for you to worry about any possible complications that you’ve experienced in the past. However, even when all the preconditions for a successful filler treatment are there, anatomy can be a game changer – this can be controlled neither by you nor by your injecting professional. Fortunately, the vast majority of injectable dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based and completely safe, as hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in our bodies. Juvederm and Restylane are among the most popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers that we use at Miracle Face.
So, what is hyaluronidase? Hyaluronidase is used in the case that a patient wants to dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler. It is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid and is available under various brand names. The Miracle Face doctor will inject the hyaluronidase into the areas where you have the unwanted filler, and the filler will be completely dissolved within 24 hours of the initial hyaluronidase injection. Once injected, hyaluronidase rapidly breaks down the hyaluronic acid. It remains in the tissue for as long as three days. This means that your next filler treatment can be scheduled within three days after the hyaluronidase procedure. It is important to note that hyaluronidase dissolves only hyaluronic acid based filler and not the hyaluronic acid naturally present in the skin.
The Cost of Hyaluronidase
The cost of dissolving a filler is a common question, however, does not have one definite answer. The main answer to this question would be anywhere from $400 – $1200 depending on how much filler needs to be dissolved and how much product is necessary in order to dissolve it.
Hyaluronidase Before and After
Dermal fillers do not always have the same effect on everybody. It is not uncommon to dislike the end result of a filler. This could be because you have gone to an inexperienced injector who overused the filler, or you are generally changing your mind about the filler overall. Fortunately, hyaluronidase can reverse the filler results. Once injected, hyaluronidase immediately dissolves the hyaluronic acid filler. Many patients are able to observe the results of hyaluronidase right away. However, it usually takes 24 hours for the area to go back to how it looked before. The good news is that the fillers can be redone in a matter of a few days, if you choose to get them renewed with a more experienced injector.
What Is the Duration of the Procedure?
The hyaluronidase injection meant to dissolve fillers is a cosmetic procedure often called a “lunchtime procedure” because of how quick it is. Usually the procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Are Lip Fillers Quick to Dissolve?
Yes, lip fillers are quick to dissolve. Some patients observe results as quickly as one hour post injection, though it is more common to have visible results within 24 hours. When it comes to final results, they are expected to be seen within a day or two.
How Many Sessions of Hyaluronidase Do I Need?
Usually, just one session is enough to get the desired results. However, in some cases patients return for a second session. This is determined by the professional discretion of our specialists here at Miracle Face. When you come to our clinic for your consultation, Dr. Schwarzburg will assess the problem and give you a precise answer.
How Long Does the Effect Last?
The effect of hyaluronidase injections is permanent, meaning if you want to enhance your appearance you will need to get dermal fillers again.
How Long is the Downtime?
A Hyaluronidase treatment is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed very quickly, meaning you will be out of the clinic shortly after the procedure. In addition, you will be fully able to immediately resume your daily activities, as the procedure does not require any downtime.
How Should I Prepare for Hyaluronidase?
Filler dissolving hyaluronidase NYC is a harmless and non-surgical procedure. There is very little that a patient will need to worry about before, during, and after a hyaluronidase treatment. Certain steps that you will need to follow include: no makeup when coming to the clinic, and avoiding alcohol, aspirin, Ibuprofen, and some dietary supplements because they are likely to cause bruising or swelling. Be sure to give Dr. Schwarzburg a recap of your medical history to confirm that any medications you are taking are okay to use with a Hyaluronidase treatment.
What Is the Cost of a Filler Dissolver?
Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Revanesse are hyaluronic acid based fillers that can be dissolved with hyaluronidase enzymes, and the price for this procedure in New York City can vary from $600 to $1500. The cost depends on factors such as how much medicine is used, how experienced your health care provider is and how complex the overall case is. Your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg at Miracle Face will result in a custom plan created for you, designed to address the problems caused by your previous filler injections.
What Is the Hyaluronidase Aftercare Like?
Dissolving dermal fillers with Hyaluronidase is a very short procedure and will neither hinder you from completing your regular activities, nor make you postpone them. You can go back to your normal routine once you leave the clinic. It is, however, advisable not to wear makeup at the site of injection for 12 hours. It is also recommended not to drink excessive amounts of alcohol or engage in rigorous exercise, as it might cause swelling.
How Safe Is Hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase targets only hyaluronic acid filler. It doesn’t affect other skin layers and doesn’t destroy your body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Hence, it is considered to be a safe procedure.
Is the Treatment Painful?
Hylenex injections are considered to be completely painless. However, some patients may have a slight pricking sensation during the process of injection. For this reason, we always offer our patients the option of a topical anesthetic if the skin is overly sensitive.
Does Hyaluronidase Have Side Effects?
Fortunately, hyaluronidase is an enzyme that is naturally present in the body. That is why there are little to zero risks related to dissolving fillers. The majority of our patients experience just a little itching, redness, tenderness, or swelling on the treatment area that subsides within a few hours post treatment.
Who Is a Candidate for Hyaluronidase Injections?
The treatment is completely safe, however, not suitable for everyone. There are certain medications and medical conditions that are not compatible with hyaluronidase. Besides that, hyaluronidase is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as well as for people who have open wounds and cold sores.
Allergy to hyaluronidase is also possible. To check if you are allergic to hyaluronidase, our professional will inject a small amount of the solution and monitor it for a few minutes. Also please be sure to familiarize our professionals with any underlying conditions or medicines that you are taking.
