Juvederm can be reversed with Hylauronidase



Yes, one of the advantages of injecting a filler like Restylane or Juvederm is the ability to reverse its effects with a product called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that assists your body in breaking down substances injected into the body.  It usually takes approximately 3 days to see the full effect.  I strongly advised finding a board certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, or dermatologist with experience to administer this treatment. Good Luck!

Eye Puffiness

Hyaluronic acid fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, etc) can cause swelling in the lower lids that potentially last a long time.  This type of filler material absorbs water and if injected diffusely in the lower lid tissues, it will look abnormal.  If it becomes a prolonged problem, the filler can be dissolved with an injection of an enzyme that will make it go away in as little as a few hours.  This treatment can be repeated in about a week if the initial result isn't satisfactory.

Juvederm can be reversed with Hyaluronidase

Yes, Juvederm can be reversed with injectable diluted hyaluronidase.  Cosmetic improvement should take 4-7 days.  If not satisfactory by one week, hyaluronidase may be repeated.

Good luck.

Reversal of Juvederm

Juvederm can be "dissolved" with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.  Injecting this takes as much or more skill than placing the juvederm, so be sure you have someone skilled do it for you.

Can the Result of Juvederm Be Reversed?

It's, of course always best to find an MD that's experienced injecting Juvederm and understands the proper aesthetics of facial beauty as it applies to facial shaping and contouring.  If, the Juvederm is lumpy, bumpy or has some other issue, hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the Juvederm.

Correcting Juvederm

Juvederm, which is one type of hyaluronic acid filler, can be reversed with hyaluronidase (Vitrase) injections which essentially dissolve the hyaluronic acid. I am sorry you are not happy with your results.  I do not think Juvederm is the best filler to use for eye rejuvenation as it often causes discoloration and swelling, even when injected properly. That being said, it is important your injector is a board-certified physician experienced in injectable fillers and eyelid rejuvenation.

Reversing Juvederm

Because Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler it is easily removed with a few small injections of hyaluronidase. I don't like Juvederm to the eye area - Restylane is a much better product to use in that area because of the Tyndall effect that occurs from Juvederm so often there - a whitish, translucent effect of the filler showing through the skin. If this is what you're experiencing, or even if it's something else, Juvederm is easily reversed with hyaluronidase.
