At times filler can be placed in the wrong areas, migrate over time due to multiple filler treatments, or simply be unwanted by the patient. Hylenex also known as Hyaluronidase is an injectable solution used to dissolve hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. This is done through injections where previous filler was placed. Hyaluronidase help break down the filler in case of a reaction, occlusion, or poorly placed or migrated filler from previous treatments.
What to expect?
Swelling, soreness, bruising, and asymmetry after your treatment is normal throughout the healing process. It is normal to feel a warm “burning” sensation when injected with Hylenex. The injection sites will swell and swelling can take up to two weeks to go down. Once it has been 7-10 days after treatment, we can then refill if none of the previous filler remains in the tissue.
Before & Aftercare?
Before your appointment it is very important that you avoid blood thinners for at least one week. Avoiding blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, St. John’s Wort, ginger, garlic, ginkgo biloba, vitamin A, vitamin E, Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oils), and other anti-inflammatory medications will help decrease the amount of bruising after your procedure. Please avoid any alcohol intake for at least 24-hours prior and after your appointment to help decrease the amount of bruising.
