Skin Filler Reversal

 

Dr. Schaefer believes every patient deserves to have the best outcome when it comes to his or her filler treatments. Injecting fillers to create a certain desired look takes skill and an artistic approach. For this reason, Dr. Schaefer performs all of her own injections so that she can give the perfect amount at the ideal location to achieve the patient’s desired outcome. Sometimes, Dr. Schaefer sees patients who have experienced undesirable results following a dermal filler injection from another practitioner. These poor results could be caused from using the wrong filler product, or using too much in one location. Individuals that come to Botox Oahu seeking improvement may be candidates for hyaluronidase.

Hyaluronidase

Hyaluronidase is considered a reversal agent for hyaluronic acid-based fillers. This includes fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Belotero. Hyaluronidase is essentially a compounded enzyme that acts as a dissolvent, which causes the breakdown of hyaluronic acid. When injected, it can help even out a poor injection to create a smoother result, or remove a filler that has been placed incorrectly. Many times, the dosage used is small, just enough to create the subtle result the patient desired to begin with.

After your injections

Hyaluronidase, just like any derma filler, is injected right into the area where the filler needs to be dissolved or tweaked. Lidocaine is used to help numb the area in order to help control any discomfort. Patients may bruise from treatment, but this lasts for just a few days. Patients will be able to see visible improvement and results within the first 1-2 days.

 

Expected costs

Hyaluronidase is not as expensive as dermal fillers. The average cost is about $100-$200 per injection.
