Uncertain of treatment with Hyaluronidase, will it harm my tissue?

A patient asked 3 years ago
Fillers were placed in TT at the end of May & also laser treatment for blue veins. I returned 2 months later to my original injector and she said it was swelling. I’m now 3.5 months & I still have “swelling”. I’m convinced it’s overfilled. I had 1 restalyne lyft syringe placed under each eye which in my opinion seemed excessive however I trusted this oculoplastic surgeon. Anyway, I’m concerned that hyaluronidase will harm my tissue and I don’t want to have an even bigger issue in the long run.

Uncertain about Hyaluronidase

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Hyaluronidase (specifically the recombinant type – Hylenex) is very safe and I commonly use it in adjustments and revisions of hyaluronic acid fillers and I am yet to see a patient suffering any complications or undesirable consequences from it. Of course as any other cosmetic injection, it should only be done by qualified and experienced clinicians to avoid potential issues related to over-correction. I hope it helps and good luck!
