Dissolving Filler With Hyalase
Hyalase is an effective treatment to dissolve unwanted HA-based dermal filler.
Hyaluronic (HA) fillers have been used for more than 20 years, and are now the most commonly used injectables for filling lips, cheeks, chins and the under-eye area, as they are naturally based and integrate well into the tissues. Long-term benefits have been seen with repeated use of hyaluronic fillers, as they stimulate collagen and elastin. One of the key features of the HA fillers is that they are temporary (lasting 4-18 months depending on the product used) and reversible – they can be dissolved quickly and easily with injections of hyaluronidase (the enzyme that breaks down HA naturally in our bodies).
Over the years we’ve seen a significant increase in people being ‘over-treated’ and having their filler migrate into unfavourable places, requiring a need to dissolve and either correct or “start again”.
Truth be told, filler migration can occur after treatment at any clinic, even ours. However, it is much more likely to occur when an area has been over-treated, and too much filler is injected, too often. That’s why we pride ourselves on saying ‘no’ – even when sometimes our clients want more!
Can I have Hyalase, if my treatment was done elsewhere?
We always encourage you to return to the clinic that did your treatment so they are aware and have a chance to correct this.
If it is not an option or you have done with no success we’d be more than happy to help.
How does Hyalase work?
What area is Hyalase most commonly used?
Unfortunately, in this instance, the filler tends to not break down quickly, and the most effective way to reverse the prominent ‘duck lip’ is to use hyaluronidase to dissolve most or all of the old product, and start again with a ‘clean canvas’. The two weeks between dissolving the old product and replacing the filler can often be a significant mental shift for people who are used to seeing overfilled lips in the mirror, although everybody around them will usually tell them they look so much better.
How long after having Hyalase can I be re-treated?
How long is does it take for Hyalase to work?
Is Hyalase safe?
If there is a reaction during your test patch, we will not proceed with Hyalase treatment. We will discuss all this in depth at your appointment, but feel free to message us with any further questions.
How much does Hyalase cost?
We will need notes on your previous treatment so that we can advise whether or not the treatment can be performed to your needs.
I'm in the industry and would like to attend a Hyalase Workshop!
This workshop will be a hands-on approach, with lots of practical application, in an intimate small group training environment.
