What is Hyalase (Hyaluronidase) treatment?

Are dermal fillers reversible?

Hyalase treatment is a medical procedure used to dissolve hyaluronic acid (breakdown or reverse effects of dermal fillers), a naturally occurring substance that is commonly found in the body. The treatment is usually administered when there is an excessive build-up of this substance or when it is necessary to remove a specific type of hyaluronic acid.

The procedure is conducted using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which is injected into the target area. This enzyme breaks down the hyaluronic acid based dermal filler molecules, enabling an easy removal

from the body through natural metabolic processes.

Hyalase treatment is commonly used in aesthetic medicine to correct facial filler complications or dissolve excessive hyaluronic acid filler that has accumulated in the wrong area. For example, if a patient is unhappy with the results of their facial filler, their doctor may recommend hyalase treatment to dissolve the filler and administer a new, more aesthetically pleasing filler.

In addition to its use in aesthetic medicine, hyalase treatment has a wide range of other applications in the medical field. It is used in ophthalmology to help disperse medication that has accumulated in the eye, as well as in some instances of prostate cancer to help dissolve the prostate gland.

While hyalase treatment may be effective in dissolving dermal fillers, it should only be performed by a trained medical professional in a clinical setting. As with any medical procedure, there may be some side effects, including swelling, bruising, and redness. The treatment is instant taking 24-48 hours to take full effect in removing dermal fillers.

Patients should consult with their doctor to determine if this procedure is right for them.

In conclusion, hyalase treatment is an effective treatment that can be used in a variety of medical applications. While it is primarily used in the aesthetic field, it has a wide range of other applications and should only be performed by a trained medical professional. Patients who are considering this treatment should consult with their doctor to determine if it is a safe and effective option for them.
