Filler Dissolving with Hyaluronidase (Hylase)
Hyalase is used for dissolving dermal fillers quickly. By dissolving dermal fillers Hylase reverses the effect of a dermal filler treatment. For example if dermal fillers have been placed incorrectly, excessively or unevenly Hylase is injected into the area to dissolve the dermal filler. It is also used when a client feels their desired look has not been achieved with derma fillers and wishes to return to their previous look before treatment. In this scenario Hylase will be injected to dissolve the unwanted dermal fillers. Lastly if you wish to change to a new lip filler technique Hylase is used to dissolve any pre-existing filler in your lips so the new desired look can be achieved.
