HA Lip fillers can be dissolved with Vitrase


Thank you for your question

The multiple lumps as you describe result from technique.

You can get those dissolved with Vitrase.

I suggest reversing the fillers if you are unhappy. this can easily be done in the office with hyaluronidase injection.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Bumps 1 month after filler in the lips

Temporary lumps or bumps can occur after injection of fillers to the lips; these are often swelling around the product and reduce after a few days.  Longer lasting and visible bumps are usually due to product being placed too superficially or too large amount placed in one location.  Thankfully, fillers such as juvederm can be reduced in as little as a few hours with injection of hyaluronidase.  Although not likely, if the nodule doesn't respond to hyaluronidase, it may need to injected with steroids or excised.

How to get lip lumps removed after juvederm injection?

Thank you for your question and photograph.  At one month after injection it is unlikely that these lumps will soften or disappear on their own and best to have them dissolved with the use of another injectable medicine termed hyaluronidase.  Hope that this helps.

Juvederm

I would recommend you return to your treating physician and they can dissolve the Juvederm with Hyaluronidase.

Juvederm lumps

If these are from Juvederm then you can have them dissolved with hyaluronidase.  May need 1-2 injections and can be done by person who did the injections.

Removing Juvederm Lumps

Thank you for sharing your photo.  I am sorry you are experiencing superficially placed Juvederm.  The good news is hyaluronic acid fillers (#Juvederm, #Vobella, #Volift, #Voluma, #Restylane, #RestylaneLyft, #RestylaneSilk, #Emervel, #Belotero) can all be dissolved with hyaluronidase injection.  No excision or surgery is needed.  If left alone, it may take several years to resolve. 

Please return to your board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for correction. 

Best of luck,

Lumps post juvaderm

Youcan have your surgeon make small nick and express it out or have him inject some hyaluronidase into the lumps to help dissolve them or just simply wait.

How to get lip lumps removed after juvederm injection?

Only Hyaluronidase injections can effectively improve the injections of Juvederm. Find an expert injector. Fees around $500. 

Bumps on lips...

Thank you for your question.  Juvederm can be reversed with hyaluronidase, a enzyme that is injected which breaks down the filler.  The lumps look like they are due to poor injection technique, but can definitely be resolved with hyaluronidase treatment.  Please follow up with your board certified Dermatologist for further evaluation and management.  Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
