Hyalase is an injectable treatment that is used to dissolve hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as those used in dermal filler procedures. It is a type of enzyme that works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler, allowing it to be safely and effectively removed. The procedure is performed by a trained medical professional, such as a cosmetic doctor or plastic surgeon, in a clinic setting.
Hyalase is often used for patients who are not satisfied with the results of their previous dermal filler treatment or for those who have experienced complications from the filler. The procedure is relatively quick and typically takes one visit. The medical professional will carefully inject the Hyalase into the area where the filler was previously placed, allowing the filler to be dissolved and removed.
The procedure is considered to be safe with minimal side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks and it’s important to consult with a medical professional in Sydney to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you.
At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, located in Sydney, our team of experienced medical professionals will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your desired outcome. We prioritize the safety and comfort of our patients and provide high-quality care. It is important to note that Hyalase is not a substitute for a surgical procedure and is used to dissolve previously injected fillers.
Consultation with our expert cosmetic doctors and nurses is complimentary and obligation free. During this consultation you will have a bespoke reversal and correction plan detailed, along with suggested time frames for re-treatment.
Hyalase can cause significant swelling in some patients. We offer one complimentary LED light session post reversal session. This aids in speeding your recovery and reducing your swelling.
All review appointments are complimentary.
All you need to know about Hyalase
Hyalase works by hydrolyzing dermal filler molecules to break down their connections. The leftovers of this breakdown are then digested and harmlessly discharged.
It works immediately.
Hyalase has a half-life of 2 minutes but a 24-48-hour activity period. Swelling is typical, and it lasts for around 2-3 days. By two weeks, all swelling should have gone, and it is safe to re-treat with dermal filler as long as no allergic reaction continues.
We recommend that you wait two weeks before retreating. This ensures that any oedema caused by the hyalase reversal has subsided. Injecting within two days of dissolving filler or hyalase will also cause the new filler to reverse.
It’s possible if treating the pre-injection mixture isn’t properly blended. Hyalase comes in the form of a powder that must be hydrated before use. At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, we use a combination of local anaesthetic and pH neutralizing treatments which are non-surgical procedures to reduce any pain associated with needles.
At the time of your consultation, your cosmetic doctor will determine this. The following factors should be taken into account when making this decision:
The amount of filler that must be reversed.
Hyaluronic acid concentration per milliliter of dermal filler — thicker fillers have higher concentrations.
Cross-linking degree of dermal fillers – More the crosslinks there are, the more hyalase injections will be necessary.
Small issues can be handled with micro hyalase’ to reverse the problem area in most cases rather than having all of your filler removed.
We normally go by the location that was treated if you don’t know what your previous injector used. In bony areas, the amount of hyaluronic acid per mL and the degree of crosslinking are usually higher. As a result, hyalase doses are likely to be higher in these areas.
Product migration The path of least resistance will be taken by dermal filler. Dermal filler can spread upwardly outside of the lip border, which is typical in the lips.
Lumps and bumps Because soft skin is harsh in this area and lumps and bumps are plainly visible, these are common in the lips and tear trough (under the eye).
Tyndall effect When dermal filler is applied too close to the skin, a blue tint appears.
Emergency reversal If a blood vessel is clogged in tear troughs during dermal filler treatment, the operation must be reversed right away. The day after, a review must be conducted to see whether further reversal is required.
complications With hyalase injections, swelling is common, but it is relatively mild and limited to the injection site. In rare situations, an allergy to hyalase can result in severe oedema. Patch testing should be performed prior to elective hyalase treatments to ensure you are not allergic to hyalase. Sometimes it causes redness.
In the hands of a skilled practitioner, bruising is rare.
Hyaluronic acid is a chemical present naturally in your skin. If you use hyalase to replace dermal filler, it will remove your natural hyaluronic acid. This is relatively minor and not visible if the proper dose of hyalase is used.
Unfortunately, filler that has been improperly injected is very common.
Patients are increasingly complaining about their cosmetic outcomes, medical difficulties, and clinical experiences when they visit our clinics.
Trust Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors to guide you through the correction phase and build a customized strategy to finally achieve your cosmetic injection goals in a safe and experienced setting.
Filler does not always have to be entirely reversed; in some cases of skin patch test lumps/bumps/superficial filler, our advanced guidelines enable us to inject ‘Micro-Hyalase’ to reverse the condition while keeping your dermal fillers below.
Hyaluronic acid is the main component of dermal fillers.
Hyaluronidase (Hyalase) is injected into the area of the previous dermal filler in a minimal discomfort treatment to reverse it. This hyaluronidase is responsible for dissolving the bonds that hold the hyaluronic acid molecules together (a process called hydrolysis). This filler dissolved immediately, allowing the body to safely digest the filler’s byproducts.
The success of filler reversal is based upon a number of factors.
The quantity of filler used.
The degree of cross-linking in the filler (thicker fillers used in the cheekbones, jaw,lips
and chin have more cross-linking). It improves the appearance.
Hyaluronic acid content per milliliter of filler. The collagen present there are higher concentration.
The severity of the non surgical cosmetic deformity – smaller issues can be addressed with micro hyalase to prevent completely reversing your product.
Simply said, the more filler and the thicker the filler, the greater the amount of Hyaluronidase necessary.
Hyalase has an action time of about 24-48 hours. Re-injecting within this time period is not recommended since it will dissolve the new filler. We recommend waiting 2 weeks for any leftover oedema to settle before we got dermal filler.
Dermal filler migration is most frequent in the lips, however, it can happen anywhere the filler is injected on occasion. A common sign is a bird look of the lips when the dermal filler has spread upwards towards the nose. This occurs for a variety of reasons.
Injection technique that isn’t up to standard — this is the most typical problem. It appears in the common areas.
Excessive dermal filler used too frequently.
The wrong dermal filler (usually one that is very hydrophilic) is used, which attracts too much water to the area and changes the lip-to-skin transition.
Longer-lasting fillers, such as the out-of-date permanent fillings
Incorrect application of the Russian lips/Tenting technique creates channels in the delicate inside lip structure, allowing the filler to spread upwards.
