I appreciate your question.
Yes, hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve Voluma in the lips. Because Voluma is cross linked differently, repeat injections may be required.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

yes, hyaluronidase can be used successfully to break down Voluma in the lips and in other areas. Voluma is more resistant to hyaluronidase and some other products are but it does clear nicely with appropriate dosing and administration technique. Best of luck.
Yes, Voluma can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Because Voluma is cross linked differently then other Juvederm products it won't respond as well to hyaluronidase and will typically need repeated treatments.
It takes a number of treatments to reverse voluma, as this type of cross linking is very tight and needs more hyaluronidase than other fillers. It often takes RF treatment to help improve the results. Please consult with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Yes. Voluma tends to require a larger amount of hyaluornidase/ Hylenex than other hyaluronic acid fillers but it will work. I don't use Voluma in the lips for this very reason. It is much more rigid than softer lip fillers and can make the lips look overdone and unnatural. Best.

Hyaluronidase dissolves all types of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers (the most common HA fillers are are Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Belotero). However it takes different amount of hyaluronidase for each filler. Voluma happens to be least sensitive to hyaluronidase, and for that reason a greater amount of hyaluronidase is needed. It is possible that you will need more than hyaluronidase treatment. However the bottom line is that you dissolve your Voluma and get back to your baseline.
As a general rule, you are better off with a thinner filler for the lips. In our practice we prefer, Juvederm, Restylane, or Restylane Silk for that area.
