-Treatment for the removal of hyaluronic acid
What is hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase is a powdered enzyme that produces hydrolysis, the degradation of hyaluronic acid. There are situations when following a volumizing treatment with hyaluronic acid, it is in excess and may migrate from the area where it was injected, having an unsightly appearance.
When is it necessary to use hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase treatment is used in the following situations:
hyaluronic acid was injected in excess in a certain area
the acid migrated from the injected area
granulomas, nodules on the lips
the patient is dissatisfied with the result and wants to return to the appearance before the injection
in case of arterial occlusion
allergic reaction to hyaluronic acid
What is the procedure?
A local anesthetic cream is used to reduce the discomfort caused by the injection. After the hyaluronidase is reconstituted with saline, it is injected into the area that needs correction.
Prior to injection, a skin test may be performed to avoid the risk of an allergic reaction. The procedure is not painful and takes about 30 minutes.
At the time of injection, a burning sensation may occur and bruising may occur at the injection site, but it resolves in a few days.
The effects of hyaluronidase begin to be seen immediately after injection but the final result will be seen within a few days of injection.
After the procedure for dissolving hyaluronic acid, it is recommended to wait at least one month for a new injection of hyaluronic acid.
