That may be true! I still wonder how safe it is to use an injectable to desolve the juvaderm on my nose? will it get worse? or will it just go back to whta it was before? do I need to go back to the same doctor or can any good doctor do it???? All i have got to say is "never again" I blame myself everyday when I look in the mirror. :(

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Lots of your own skin is also made up of natural hyaluronic acid. That is why eventually the juvederm will break down and be absorbed by your body. It is hard to know how long it will last because every person metabolizes (breaks down) juvederm at a different rate. On average, juvederm is said to last 4 to 6 months. For some people it lasts more than a year. If you really hate your nose and you want the juvederm dissolved quickly, there is an enzyme called hyaluronidase that dissolves hyaluronic acid filler (like juvederm or restylane) very quickly. Hyaluronidase is branded 'wydase' or 'vitrase'. BE CAREFUL. Some people have a hypersensitivity reaction to hyaluronidase that can cause swelling, especially if it is injected around the eyes. ASK FOR AN ALLERGY TEST IN YOUR ARM BEFORE YOU LET ANYONE INJECT HYALURONIDASE IN YOUR FACE. Also, because lots of your natural tissue is made up of hyaluronic acid (like juvederm) some doctors believe that hyaluronidase breaks down natural tissue as well as the juvederm. Ask your doctor about these risks. It does not have to be the same doctor who put the juvederm in who dissolves it. Your current doctor sounds awful and you sound like you don't trust him. Get a new doctor. Find a new doctor who is very experienced with using hyaluronidase. Get the new doctor to find out from your current doctor EXACTLY where the juvederm was injected so that the hyaluronidase injections can be limited to this area only. ASK THE NEW DOCTOR LOTS OF QUESTIONS AND FIND OUT ALL THE RISKS. Good luck. Keep us updated. Cheers

oh my God. I can not thank you enough for putting teh time and sending me all this valuable information. I went to see my dermatologist and he was abit worried to injust anything as he thinks it may result into more complications. I feel I can wait now and just see how i may feel about it in 2 months. if things don't go down naturally I will try a different doctor... all I have to say is that in our time injectables have become too available and as long as you go to a responsible doctor you are fine but otherwise it can become a big problem. Thank you all as you really really helped me. xxxxxb

biba - no need to thank me! I wish I had known about this website before I had my disasters so somebody with experience could have helped me make decisions. Maybe I would not have had so many disasters in a row. That is why RealSelf is so good! I agree that injectables are way too available and this means that doctors who do not have the proper experience are allowed to use them. How are we supposed to know the difference about who is a good doctor and who isn't?? All doctors will assure you that they are very experienced! Just be confident that juvederm does not last forever and it goes away a bit at a time. If you get horrible swelling from taking the 'quick option' to get rid of it with hyaluronidase then the swelling might last for up to six to eight weeks and could look way worse than the juvederm. Be patient. Just hang in there and wait. Honestly, it will go away. Your idea to wait for two months and see how you feel is very sensible. Please keep us updated about how your nose is coming along. Cheers x

that's not a very good indication. you should have had a rhinoplasty by an experienced surgeon. it's likely that you were offered this injection because he or she was not comfortable doing what was best for you.

Thanks Mishka. I have been reding about that injection but when I went back to him he got very angrey and said that i should be happy with it and that it looked worse before...I then asked how long will this product last and he said I don't know, everybody is different. I can't go back to him as I can't bare seeing him again.....what I am worried about is if I go to another doctor and if he tries to take it out it might turn out irregular and worse... I wonder how long will it take for it to start going down naturally...do you know? a year? 6 months? thanks again. xb

They can take it out easily with an enzyme injection -takes most of it out right away. Make him take it out-don't take no for an answer-they tend to put you off.
