Dissolving Voluma

I have been injecting Voluma almost 3 years, and have needed to dissolve it one time.  The situation was unique, as the patient was a 26 year old asian man who had a flat face and wanted to try cheekbones.  It was a beautiful result.  In the office he loved it.  He went home, and his friends teased him for doing it, so he came back and asked me to undo it.It took A LOT of hyaluronidase to dissolve it (the brand I use is called Hylenex).  If memory serves me correct, I think it took about 5 entire vials to completely dissolve 2 syringes of Voluma.  Compared to Juvederm, it took much more per volume.   We didn't do it all in one visit, but each time to his satisfaction.  It was relatively easy.  I hope that helps.
