Hylenex is an injectable treatment used to reverse the results of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Hylenex is made from hyaluronidase, 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.
No. Unfortunately, only dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Other semi-permanent and permanent fillers cannot be removed with hyaluronidase.
At Enchanted Medical Aesthetics, we recommend waiting two weeks after dissolving old filler to replace it with new filler. This allows for any swelling to dissipate and ensures that the hyaluronidase will not affect any new filler.
Yes! Many patients now opt for a more natural look- which no longer includes fillers. For those looking for a more subtle augmentation, we recommend waiting two weeks before re-injecting.
Injections for dissolving filler are typically quite comfortable. We apply a strong numbing cream to the area before administering the local anesthetic, along with the dissolving agent. This ensures the procedure is as comfortable as possible. All in all, it’s a simple and straightforward process that can have remarkable results.
We use a needle to inject the dissolving enzyme into the skin, so there’s the potential for bruising. There’s normally some swelling as the treated filler liquifies instead of staying in gel form, and that can take up to two weeks to settle down. This can be a bit uncomfortable, but it’s all part of the process. Keep in mind that it’s a necessary step in order to achieve your goals.
Some clients may need multiple dissolving sessions to reach their aesthetic goals or to be a candidate for additional dermal filler. For a more accurate estimate on how many sessions you will need- please book a consultation.
