Sometimes it is necessary to dissolve dermal fillers. We often get clients coming to us from other clinics that are not happy with their facial fillers.  Perhaps the dermal filler is overfilled, incorrectly placed or lumpy in appearance.  One of the good things about hyaluronic acid fillers is that not only is it a naturally occurring substance in the body, but it is also possible to dissolve it in the event of things not going to plan.  The hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is cross-linked and left to its own devices in the body will take between three months to a year to break down.  But with the help of an enzyme called hyaluronidase, dermal fillers can be dissolved almost immediately.

We look forward to your visit.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring acid found in the body.  It is a constituent of our nerve tissue, skin and connective tissue.  The molecule is a polysaccharide chain and is very hydrophilic, meaning it likes and is attracted to water molecules.  this makes it an excellent dermal filler to replace lost volume due to the ageing process.  Hyaluronic acid is synthesised and broken down in our body. In fact, one-third of our hyaluronic acid is turned over daily.

What Is Hyaluronidase?

Hyaluronidase is also a natural substance found in the body. Hyaluronidases are in fact enzymes that help to break down hyaluronic acid.  Interestingly hyaluronidase is found in high concentration in sperm and is made available commercially from ovine and bovine testicular tissue.

To remove dermal filler from the body, hyaluronidase can be injected into the site to dissolve the hyaluronic acid from the filler.

The hyaluronidase will also dissolve the body’s natural hyaluronic acid in the region.  Because hyaluronic acid turn over rapidly in the body is very high,  this will come back very quickly.

Hyaluronidase treatment may be contraindicated in those people that allergic to wasp or bee sting.
