I hope that helps and best regards,Dr. Sapijaszko.
Yes, of course it can be removed with Hyaluronidase. See your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist with expertise in the use of all the FDA approved Hylaronic acid fillers to get the best results and also to be able to use Hyluronidase if needed.
Hyaluronidase can be used in precise doses to dissolve injections of Juvederm Volbella.
Hyaluronidase is safe to use by experienced plastic surgeons and dermatologists.

IS VOLBELLA REVERSIBLE?
Yes it can, side effects minimal
You have have bruising and swelling for a few days after dissolving the filler- this is proportional to how much filler had been placed. Overall a good and safe procedure, with very little side effects.
(Truth- its a painful procedure, but pain is short lasting)
All the best

Can vobella be removed?
Thank you for your clinical post and a common question. Juvederm Volbella can Hyaluronidase. I generally encourage patients to wait at least one month to six weeks prior to doing so as any residual swelling from the injection procedure will have gone down and some patients quite like their lip shape and size once the temporary swelling has resolved. If, however, after waiting 4 to 6 weeks you’re still unhappy with the size, shape, projection of your lips following the use of Juvederm Volbella then Hyaluronidase can be used to break down the substance. Longer term sugar gels such as Voluma and Volbella may take two to three Hyaluronidase injections separated by approximately one to two weeks to completely remove the product. There is some very small risk of loss of normal structural support, but this is more common in other facial areas and not the lips.
I hope this information has been of some assistance and seek out an experienced facial injectable physician with years of experience in use of Hyaluronidase to reduce products such as Volbella and you should achieve the results you’re looking for.

Thank you for your question! If your injection was just done- there is sometimes early swelling that will go down. If you do not like the contour then an enzyme can be injected to remove the Volubella. It may take more than one injection to remove the material. There is very little risk- particularly in the lips . You should have a skin test prior to the injection to make sure that you do not have an allergy.
