Can I use maximum strength vitrase more than once?

2 ml voluma 3 months ago. dr injected it where it is not recommended (buccal hollow, chin and one temple), result asymmetric & edema. i went to 2 drs who used diluted vitrase. after 8th round, a derm used, undiluted vitrase. it worked for an hour then i swelled up and looked the same. today 3rd day 45% seems dissolved, but i still see and feel the voluma and albeit smallers lumps. when can i use undiluted vitrase again to get the remaing out? scared of damaging my skin!

Can I use maximum strength vitrase more than once?

Thank you for your question.  Full strength Vitrase can be administered more than once with good results and at no additional risk to a patient.

Hyaluronidase injections

In my experience, I have not had any problems with multiple injections of full-strength hyaluronidase. Your skin should not be affected if injected properly. Good luck!

Reversing fillers with hyaluronidase / Vitrase

you can use as much hyaluronidase as needed as this doesn't affect your normal skin.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Dissolving Voluma

Hyaluronidase can be used as often as needed until the product is fully dissolved. I usually prefer full-strength Hylenex if I am trying to get rid of filler completely and only use the diluted form if I am trying to get rid of a little.

Dissolving Voluma

It can sometimes be difficult to dissolve Voluma, especially if it was injected deeply with a significant amount.  Hyalex can be injected without dissolving right into the area.  Best, Dr. Green
