Why do some people respond to hyaluronidase more than others?

i am at my 14th round of hyaluronidase to dissolve voluma (2ml) only recently after going to three different providers and getting three undiluted injections (before i got diluted vitrase) did i start to see sone results and i am not even there yet. I know voluma is harder to dissolve, but why is it working so slowly on me?

Depth of the filler makes a difference. 2ml of Voluma is actually 2 full syringes which is a pretty good amount also. And finally if you already had filler there and more was added then it can bond differently and that impacts it too. There's a lot to it. Hyaluronidase shouldn't be done in extremes so I usually see people for at least 2 rounds of it because it should not be overdone. 14 rounds though is more than I've ever heard of or seen in any documentation.
