Hyaluronidase for Juvederm Reversal

Because of our expertise in using Vitrase (Hyaluronidase), we will often get patients contacting us about reversing injections that were done at another office.  The following Hyaluronic acid based products are suitable for reversal with Vitrase:

Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane,  Voluma and Belotero.

Vitrase works quickly by breaking down the molecular structure of hyaluronic acid based fillers.  This means that the products will dissolve almost immediately when the Vitrase is injected.  

An example of a Juvederm reversal for injections under the eye.  This patient was injected superficially with too much Juvederm and had bags under the eyes because of it.  The pictures were taken only minutes apart.

Vitrase for Juvederm Reversal

Every few weeks we get contacted by a patient that is unhappy with the results of an injection procedure at another office.  As long as the injections received from the other practice are "Hyaluronic Acid" based products such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Voluma and Belotero, we can easily reverse the injections with an enzyme called Vitrase.

When Vitrase is injected into the area where the Hyaluronic acid based product resides, it breaks down the product and the result of the previous injection is reversed.

In a particularly troubling case (photos below), a patient was injected into the lower eye area very superficially (near the surface of the skin) with Juvederm.  There was 2 CC's of product placed immediately under the eye and it led to the area being very swollen and bloated looking.  As you can see from the after photos, within minutes this yearlong ordeal for the patient had been fixed.  We like to see smiles like that on our patients!

What is hyaluronidase and what is it used for?

Hyaluronidase (also known as Vitrase) is a medication that can be used to dissolve hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, and more.  This product is derived from sheep or cows to create an enzyme antedote for HA based fillers.  This option is extremely useful in the event that a patient dislikes their results from Restylane, Juvederm, etc. and wants the product removed.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to reverse only very specific portions of the product and one must be prepared to lose all of the benefits of their filler treatment when injecting hyaluronidase.  Because hyaluronidase is only effective for HA fillers, it is not useful for other cosmetic dermal fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra.

Although not common practice in our industry, Celibre performs an allergy test prior to the use of hyaluronidase to ensure there is no adverse patient reaction.  Although an allergic or hypersensitive reaction is uncommon, it is highly recommended to take the time to rule this out.
