If Hyaluronidase breaks down Juvederm why could it take more than one treatment?

Reversing Juvederm--Hyaluronidase to the rescue
It depends on the amount of filler and technique. It may only take one treatment of Hyaluronidase to reverse. You can try a different technique next time. Implants or fat are also options. Best, Dr. Emer
Reversing Juvederm With Hyaluronidase
Thank you for your question. The amount of Hyaluronidase required depends on the location of the injection, the volume of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler and the technique used. Most often only one injection of Hyaluronidase is required to dissolve the filler.
So if you imagine filler can come in margarine type thickness or butter thickness or even thicker in some types then the thinner more watery filler is more quickly dissolved. The thicker filler has more chemical bonds and as a result is harder to dissolve and may take more than one bout of hyalase.
The upside to thicker filler is that it lasts longer in the body, the downside is that it is harder to remove when not wanted.
Hope that helps.

The amount of hyaluronidase that is required will depend on the volume of HA filler, the location of the injection, and whether the original approach was a single or multi-planar injection. However, frequently, one injection sitting is all that is required to remove unwanted or poorly placed filler. If you aren't sure about how your lips look, give yourself another week or two to make the decision.
