Unfortunately, Vitrase is not FDA approved for the removal of Juvederm and it most certainly CAN affect normal skin HA.  There is a risk/benefit ratio that has to be discussed with your doctor when treating unwanted HA filler.  Too much Vitrase can remove natural HA in the skin in the area - too little Vitrase will leave remaining unwanted HA filler in the area.
