After hyaluronidase, how does the dissolved product leave the body?

Dissolving filler with Hyaluronidase
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that liquefies the filler and turns it into water immediately. This is then absorbed by the body. It may initially look a bit swollen, or as you state "pouchy", due to the added fluid, but this will resolve within a few hours. Not all filler can be reversed with this product, as it is only effect for hyaluronic acid based fillers. Bellafill, Sculptra, and Radiesse are not among this family. There is a small risk for filler to migrate if it is not placed in the correct plane, but it would not liquefy and travel.
Hope this helps,
