Does Hyaluronidase Work in Lips Injected with Juvederm? If So How Do You Dose It

Hyaluronidase in the lips

Hyaluronidase works by dissolving the filler and can be used in the lips or anywhere else the product is injected.  yo uhave to be careful to only use a litte bit at a time.  I usually inject a very dilute small amount and see the patient back in 1 week for a possible additional injeciton.  Its best not to use too much because an indentation can be created.  Dr. Halem

Hyaluronidase in lips

Hyaluronidase helps dissolve any HA product like Juvederm or Restylane, regardless of where it was injected. Hyaluronidase can only be injected, so your injector should know the proper dosing. Dosage doesn't depend on the area; it depends on how much filler was used, how long it's been there, how much you want to take out, etc.

Hyaluronidase Enzyme

If you are unhappy with Juvederm in your lips, it can absolutely be dissolved. However, you must remember that this may take up to 24 hours for full results, and you may want to return for more dissolving if you are still unhappy. Your physician should know the small dose to use for the procedure. Most importantly, think about why you were unsatisfied with the Juvederm and how it could have been better.

Hyaluronidase for Juvederm

Yes, hyaluronidase works on Juvederm, Restylane, and all the other HA products regardless of where they were injected.  The dosing depends on the area injected and the amount of product.  Once injected, you usually see results within a few minutes but will also see changes over the next 24 hours.  I would not recommend injecting more Juvederm on the same day as Hyaluronidase injections.


Good Luck.

Hyaluronidase to Dissolve Juvederm

It doesn't take much Hyaluronidase to dissolve Juvederm; however, you may need more than one injection.  It dependes on where the Juvederm is in your lips and how much was used.  Please go to an experienced injector.
