What does hyaluronidase do?

Should I choose dermal fillers or anti wrinkle injections

With the rise of aesthetic procedures, like anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, there has also been a rise in botched procedures and complications. That’s why opting for a professional team, in a registered clinic, is essential. Like ours here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic in Preston. Aesthetic procedures carried out by a trained professional have a minimal amount of risk, and can also ensure lasting, natural results. But what happens if your dermal fillers are not quite right? Or if you just don’t like them? Well, one of the most important products any professional clinic can stock is hyaluronidase. But what does hyaluronidase do? And why is this so important?

Dermal fillers and hyaluronidase

Dermal fillers involve injecting hyaluronic acid into areas of the skin. These can be targeted on specific areas, like the chin, lips, nose, and cheeks. Or they can be used as a form of non-surgical face lift. Either way, dermal fillers add structure and volume to the face. This can help to replace volume that is lost during the ageing process, as well as reshaping your facial features in a natural and effective way. But if you need to remove your dermal fillers, for whatever reason, you need hyaluronidase.

What does hyaluronidase do?

So, what is hyaluronidase? Well, this is an enzyme that is also found naturally in the body, just like hyaluronic acid. But the role of hyaluronidase is to dissolve hyaluronic acid, and that’s why it is so useful. Hyaluronidase can be used by professional, registered, aesthetic practitioners to remove dermal fillers, in just a few hours. So if you don’t like your new fillers, they can be removed quickly and painlessly. Hyaluronidase can also be be used to reduce the amount of dermal filler in an area. This can help to rectify any dermal filler mistakes, such as too much lip filler. 

Hyaluronidase treatment

If you have botched, misplaced, or overly full dermal fillers, a registered professional can use hyaluronidase to reduce the amount of filler or remove it completely. The treatment itself is virtually painless and will take only a few seconds to administer. The dermal filler material will starts to dissolve immediately, and the process will be fully complete within 24 to 48 hours.

Considerations for hyaluronidase

If you are thinking about removing your dermal fillers, using hyaluronidase, there are some things to consider, including:

  • Choosing a professional team to work with- injecting this enzyme into the wrong area will not help remove your dermal fillers, and could interfere with the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the facial tissue. You need to choose a professional team you can count on, for the best results. Like us here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic.
  • Allergies- Hyaluronidase is a substance that is also found in bees venom. So if you are allergic to bees, you may also be allergic to hyaluronidase treatment. This means that if you aren’t sure if you’re allergic, to bees, you should probably check with your doctor, and have a patch test on your forearm to check for any allergy indicators like redness and swelling.
