Dermal Filler Removal
WHAT IS IT?
Hyaluronidase (Hyalase) is an injectable clear solution made from a protein enzyme which breaks down the bonds of hyaluronic acid and as a result it degrades the dermal filler. Hyaluronic Acid is the main ingredient in the dermal fillers. Hyaluronic Acid naturally degrades within the skin and body, dermal fillers are manufactured using technology which extends the half-life and as a result, delays the degradation process.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
It can be used to dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers that have not broken down in the skin. Hyalase can be used in cosmetic medicine for emergency situations for dissolving dermal filler, for example, for vascular occlusion, cases of chronic infection/ inflammatory nodules or for resolving undesired aesthetic results for example overcorrection, unevenness/ asymmetry/ Lumps/ product migration.
The results of Hyalase for cosmetic correction can be seen 24-48 hours post treatment. It is recommended that the treatment area is reviewed post one week after initial treatment and the hyalase may need to be repeated when performing cosmetic correction.
Redness, swelling, brusing. Test patch is recommended prior to the use to determine if there is a reaction to the hyalase.
WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE HYALASE
If you have an allergy to bovine protein (the hyaluronidase contains derivatives from Bovine), history of allergic reaction to Hyaluronidase, pregnant or breastfeeding
