hyaluronidase treatment to dissolve lip dermal fillerCheshire Lasers provides Hyaluronidase Treatments, also known as Hylase Treatments, to dissolve Dermal fillers.

Whats is Hyaluronidase?

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that dissolves hyaluronic acid. It is a prescription-only treatment which is also known as Hylase.

Which Dermal Fillers can Hyaluronidase can dissolve?

It works best on Dermal Fillers, which consist primarily of hyaluronic acid. The enzyme hyaluronidase quickly gets to work by breaking down the filler just a few minutes after injection, which is then broken down and removed within a few hours. However, it can take a few days to see the final result.

Dermal Fillers that can be dissolved with Hylase include:

Hyaluronidase is ineffective on Radiesse, Ellansé, Artefill, Silicone, Sculptra or other non-HA fillers.

Who performs the Hyaluronidase treatments at Cheshire Lasers?

All the specialists that provide Dermal Fillers at Cheshire Lasers Clinic have Hyaluronidase training so they can dissolve the filler they inject should a problem occur after treatment.

The following Specialists also perform hyaluronidase treatments for patients who have had treatments elsewhere.

Moira of Jouvence Aesthetics

Aesthetic Nurse Moira can only treat patients who have had treatments performed by other practitioners if the practitioners who performed the treatment makes a direct referral. The referral must include a full medical history, the type of product injected, the amount injected and where it was injected. The batch number and expiry date must also be included.

Katey Moulton of Nevaeh Aesthetics

Aesthetic Nurse Katey is trained and insured to remove Dermal Fillers with Hyaluronidase in the lips, perioral area, nasolabial fold and marionette area.

What does a Hyaluronidase Treatment involve:

The enzyme is injected the same way as any other injectable treatment, either with a needle or a cannula. The effects can be seen after several minutes, but it takes a few days to see the full results. Hyaluronidase is not new, it has been used by doctors for injections for years, most commonly to assist the spread of local anaesthetic solutions.

Does Hyaluronidase treatment hurt?

The treatment is a little uncomfortable, similar to other injectable procedures.

To minimize discomfort, we use a topical anaesthetic to numb the area before the injection.

We can also inject it with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to numb the area during the procedure.

How many Hylase treatment sessions will I need?

Sometimes you may only need a single treatment. This depends on the type of dermal filler we are dissolving and the volume we are trying to remove.

If you require further treatment, we prefer to leave at least five days between sessions to allow the first treatment to work fully.

Sometimes we may need to use Hyaluronidase in an emergency to prevent a complication such as a vascular occlusion. In this situation, we repeat the treatment every hour to restore circulation.

Which areas can Hylase treat?

The most common requests at Cheshire Lasers for hylase treatment are to dissolve lip fillers and tear trough fillers. These two areas are more prone to dermal filler migration, which can cause a poor cosmetic outcome.

Most areas treated with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be treated with Hylase, including:

  • Lips fillers
  • Migrated lip fillers
  • Tear Trough fillers
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Perioral lines (smokers’ lines around the mouth)
  • Chin fillers
  • Cheek fillers
  • Under eye area

Are there side effects of Hyaluronidase filler dissolving treatment?

There are very few reported side effects with Hyaluronidase.
The commonest side effects are bruising which is usually minimal, and swelling.

Localised allergic reactions to the enzyme can occur. For this reason, we will book you in for a consultation and a patch test at least 24 hours before the procedure.

If you are allergic to bee venom or suffer anaphylaxis, you are more likely to react to Hyaluronidase. We do not recommend Hylauronidase unless the benefits of treatment significantly outweigh the risks.

How do I book a Hyaluronidase treatment at Cheshire Lasers?

After Dermal Filler Treatment at Cheshire Lasers

If you want to dissolve a dermal filler after treatment at Cheshire Lasers, please contact us. We will book you a consultation with the doctor/nurse who performed your treatment to assess your needs and advise you further.

After Dermal Filler Treatment elsewhere

If your dermal filler treatment was performed elsewhere, and you would like it dissolved, we usually recommend contacting the practitioner who performed it.  They will know the quantity of filler in each area and the type of filler.  With this knowledge, it is much easier to perform a treatment. All medical aesthetic practitioners should be able to provide this treatment if performing Dermal Fillers.

When a dermal filler treatment goes wrong, we understand that sometimes you may not want to return to your original practitioner. It can also be difficult when you move and your practitioner is too far away. In these circumstances, please get in contact.
