Does injecting Hylauronidase enzyme have any side effects?

I had done 1ml juvederm filler on my nose , it's been 3 week , the swelling is gone I dnt feel any pain. The problem is I dislike the result and wanted to dissolve it . So, my question is does injecting Hylauronidase enzyme causes any side effect? Or will it be completely gone ? Thank you

I have not seen any problems with anyone from hyaluronidase injections, other than in one case where a patient had it injected where no hyaluronic acid had been placed, and lost some native hyaluronic acid.

A patient may be allergic to the hyaluronidase, may have some stinging or bruise a little where it is injected.

There are several posts on this website about patients who have had bad experiences with hyaluronidase injections, but the procedure works very well in my experience. It does dissolve your natural hyaluronic acid, but your body should be able to replenish this over a few weeks.

You can have hyaluronidase injected to remove your filler. I am very conservative with it because it should not be injected into areas without any filler, or yes, it can remove your natural hyaluronic acid. As long as it's put in where the filler is, it will dissolve just that, and very quickly. But taking out filler is as much of an art as putting it in! So see an experienced injector!
