WHAT IS HYALASE?
Creating perfect beautiful lip fillers is huge job. It is best practice to inject HA conservatively. The task of placing the right amount, of the right filler in the right place slowly but surely is key. Occasionally detailed corrections may need to be made as the science of injecting may not always be possible with exact precision.
Hyaluronidase steps in perfectly to correct imprecise filler injection, typically the correction will be dealing with slightly too much or too less filler, slightly misplaced filler. A subtle use of the wrong filler, filler impacting upon blood vessels, nerves or muscles or even DONS – Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
Practice does make perfect, or as near to perfect as we can get. As experience grows, so do skills, however the need for using Hyaluronidase will always be part of gaining proficiency within industry. It allows for expansion of our learning base too, as, as practitioners we are always growing, learning and developing years after qualification. The majority of Hyaluronic fillers such as FDA approved Restylane and Juvéderm react well to Hyaluronidase injections, the enzyme quickly takes apart the filler, thus correcting the problem.
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme, its effects on HA is Hydrolysis. Hydrolysis reverses the effects of HA. HA base fillers are broken down this way or a process of dissolving there and then. But the effect is felt on some indigenous HA, which is why training in expert handling, conservatively administering natural does and gauging the effects carefully. Filling is like sculpting and is a fine art in the smallest detail. Balancing a little filler here and there is a refined art, trimming a little filler away with Hyaluronidase requires skill. This is made more difficult because when filler is in the wrong place and is taken away it cannot be replaced immediately, that is within 24 hours.
There is little needle pain, sometimes lidocaine can be used to reduce it, but most clients will find it tolerable. A slight bruise may occur.
Hyaluronidase is a prescribed medicine specific to the individual it is treating. Face to face prescription, except in emergency situations. The hyaluronidase is then mixed with another substance known as BACTERIOSTATIC SODIUM CHLORIDE, which is then injected into affected area.
