Dents after Hyaluronidase to Dissolve Juvederm in Lips

The dents may be caused by residual Juvederm in your your lips. After waiting a short time to determine if this is secondary to swelling your physician may want to inject more hyaluronidase.

Hyaluronidase and juvederm

The hyaluronidase should not affect your normal skin or tissues below it. It will dissolve the juvederm. It is possible that all is not dissolved or that this is what you have after all juvedem gone(unlikely for lips). Give yourself some time to be sure not swollen. See your doctor and find out whether they think you need more hyaluronidase. When all Juvederm gone , start over.

Juvederm with Hyaluronidase

Juvederm is a great filler to use for injections because we can erase it with hyaluronidase.  This is helpful if too much is injected and the results are not optimal.  However, one thing to be careful of when injecting hyaluronidase is that you can end up with indents.  There are 2 ways to treat, you can add a little more Juvederm into the indented area, or wait and see how it settles out.  The indentation will resolve over a period of weeks.  Hope this helps!

Hyluronidase for Juvederm

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hyluronidase is great for removing Juvederm.  However, the skin involved with injecting the hyluronidase is just as important as the skill in injecting the Juvederm in the first place.  If you have dents, I would suggesting having the rest of the Juvederm melted with the hyluronidase and then starting over.  I would also suggest waiting at least one week between injections to allow all swelling to resolve.


Good Luck.
