Dissolving Dermal Fillers
Hyalase is used where it is desirable to dissolve dermal fillers quickly. For example, if dermal fillers have been placed incorrectly, excessively or unevenly, or if, for whatever reason, a patient wishes to reverse the effect of a dermal filler treatment prematurely. Following injection into the treated area, the enzyme acts within minutes to dissolve unwanted filler and to restore the original facial contours. The desired level of flattening can usually be achieved by carefully monitoring the dose of the enzyme, with larger doses resulting in complete elimination of the filler from the implantation site.
Hyalase injections are best delayed for several days after dermal filler implantation in order to allow for subsidence of any short-term treatment-related swelling.
The easy reversibility with Hyalase of these commonly used dermal fillers provides a comforting safety margin that ensures such fillers are associated with almost no permanent adverse events. This benefit contrasts strongly with the inflexibility and irreversibility of permanent fillers.
