What is Hylenex?
Hylenex (hyaluronidase) is a substance that is used to dissolve certain types of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane. It works by breaking down the molecules of the filler, allowing it to be naturally absorbed by the body.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are used to add volume and fullness to the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. They are typically made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body and helps to maintain moisture and plumpness in the skin.
However, in some cases, patients may be unhappy with the results of their dermal filler treatment, or they may experience complications such as lumps or unevenness in the treated area. In these situations, Hylenex can be used to dissolve the filler and restore the natural contours of the face.
The process of dissolving dermal filler with Hylenex is relatively simple and quick. The provider will cleanse the skin and inject a small amount of Hylenex into the area where the filler was previously injected. The Hylenex will then break down the filler molecules, allowing them to be naturally absorbed by the body.
Overall, Hylenex is a safe and effective way to dissolve dermal filler and restore the natural contours of the face. It can be a useful option for patients who are unhappy with the results of their dermal filler treatment, or who experience complications.
