Considering Hyaluronidase for NL folds

 I had Juvederm in my nasal labial folds and marionette area 5 days ago. The swelling is down but my nasal folds look MUCH worse than before I had the Juvederm . They were just lines then;  now they are pronounced dents. Also, there seems to be bruise colored lines running along them.  It is very noticeable and hard to cover with makeup . I wish I had never touched my face.  I want to have the Hyaluronidase injections but I'm terrified after reading horror stories here. Has anyone had a good result with Hyaluronidase in the NL folds? If I wait with the bruise lines go away? I hate this bitter feeling of regret.

Do you think it could be residual swelling from the procedure?

I hope so. My doctor said to wait two weeks and if it still looks like it does now, it could be reversed with Hyaluronidase. Right now I'm upset because I've gone from having fine wrinkles in my NL folds to dents. And I have bruise colored lines going down the NL lines. It is very noticeable on certain kinds of light. I hope it is just bruising and not the Tyndall effect. I am frightened that if I do the Hyaluronidase, I will look even worse!

I'd definitely give it two weeks just to make sure it isn't swelling.  Hopefully that is all it is! It must be frustrating in the meantime because you can't do anything to hide the dents right now.  Hang in there.  Hopefully some of our Community Members will chime in with some of their own experiences soon.

Thanks. I emailed my doctor and he was great about getting right back to me (which I sincerely appreciated). He suggested that it is swelling and so I am trying to be patient and wait.

Good to know!  If it is swelling I wonder if some cold compresses would make a difference.  Have you tried that?

You know what made the difference? Time.... just like my doctor assured me it would. It all looks much better. I saw him today and his massaged a tiny bit of lumpiness out. It all looks and feels much better. Whew! I was really freaking out initially because I had significant swelling and bruise lines going down the nasal labial folds. I looked so much worse at first! This was my first time using a filler and I think I expected instant results. However, everyone is different and some people are going to have to put up with more swelling and bruising than others. I am glad that I have a doctor who was willing to promptly address my concerns. When it comes to your face, it is important to have a doctor that you trust. I am glad that I do trust mine, even more so now that I've seen how concerns are addressed.
