The Solution to Reversing Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

The enzyme "hyaluronidase" - also called Vitrase, can be injected to break down any unwanted hyaluronic acid filler . It simply and safely diffuses the injected filler and facilitates dispersion of the product.

Restylane Lyft is reversible with hyaluronidase

There is no problem reversing Lyft with hyaluronidase. I like to use cannulas for this. It sometimes takes 2 procedures to fully remove.

Yes, all Restylane fillers are reversible with the use of a special medication that dissolves the product. Speak with your injector about this option.

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid filler, and as such can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Always make sure to see a board-certified, experienced dermatologist and communicate your concerns and expectations clearly in order to minimize the risk of needing filler reversed.

Reversing Restylane Lyft

One wonderful thing about hyaluronic acids is that they can be dissolved if you are not happy with the results.  All Restylane products, Juvederm products and Belotero (all hyaluronic acids) can be dissolved, or "reversed", with hyaluronidase.  Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid.  Patients are always very pleased to hear that you can "reverse" these fillers if they are not happy.  Thank you for your question.

Dissolving Filler

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Thank you for your question. It is possible to dissolve any of the hyaluronic acid fillers. Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus are all in this category. The product Vitrase (hyaluronidase) is most commonly used to dissolve the product. This can be easily done in your provider's office. Good luck.

Any of the hyaluronic fillers can be dissolved by using hyaluronidase. Resylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Voluma and Juvederm can all be removed with a simple injection.

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid -based product and can be reversed if an undesirable result occurred by using an enzyme known as Hyaluronidase.  I would spend your time doing research on the experience level of the injector you go to whether it is have Restylane Lyft, or whether you need to dissolve it.
