I am wondering if using this injection to break down a poorly injected hydrolonic acid filler in my troughs would also cause it to break down my body's naturally occuring HA as well and thereby leaving me looking like I have less volume than I even started with. I mean, how can the product differentiate between the synthetic & the natural form of hydrolonic acid anyhow? My gut tells me that it is risky but I have found nothing published on the topic.
Would Using Hydronaise to Diminish a Lump from an HA Filler Also Cause It to Eradicate the Nat'l HA That is in the Skin As Well?

This is a great question. We do not see a reduction to below baseline levels after hyaluronidase injections. We are not sure of the mechanism, but likely it is becuase our body is constantly replenishing our native hyaluronic acid. I would not worry at all about the injections. I have used them on several occasions with great results, including on myself! best to you.
