Hyaluronidase under the eyes

This enzyme is safe to use under the eyes. The dose varies depending upon the amount of correction needed, but generally is 25 to 75 units per area.

Hyluronidase is a safe way to dissolve Restylane.  You should see a board certified dermatologist to determine how much is necessary for you.

Is Hyaluronidase safe under eyes?

Hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve excess fillers which are composed of hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero) and it can be used under the eyes.  The physician treating you would be able to determine the amount to use.

Hyaluronidase is safe.

Hyaluronidase is the enzyme that dissolves Hyaluronic Acid (the ingredient in both Juvederm and Restylane).  Although this agent, like any other injectable product should be used with care, it is generally safe for use in this area.  

A substantial number of people come in to our practice every week seeking Hyaluronidase injections to dissolve Restylane or Juvederm injected by another provider.

Be sure to have a board-certified provider (facial plastic surgeon, general plastic surgeon, or dermatologist) deliver these procedures.

Hyaluronidase under the eyes

Hyaluronidase is safe for under the eyes, but must be injected by a trained professional. It is not something you do yourself. Seek an experienced physician for this injection.
