Hyaluronic acid and the destruction of its deposits — hyaluronidase!
In aesthetic medicine, when performing beauty injections, one of the most commonly used fillers is hyaluronic acid, it is an acid that is naturally found in the body. It is used because of its unique properties allowing it to retain the moisture of the skin, because with age the body produces less and less hyaluronic, which leads to a more pronounced appearance of fine wrinkles, which become deeper, and the skin itself becomes more flabby, folds appear, and the skin begins to grow old.
Hyaluronic acid injections are used to fill all types of wrinkles, correcting the contour of the face oval, cheeks, jaw and chin, temples and lips shape, small and deep wrinkles around the lips, eyes, forehead, cheeks, chin, neck.
However, incorrectly injected hyaluronic acid injections can cause complications, hyaluronic hardening, small knots, and give a completely different result than expected — asymmetry. Therefore, it is very important that you carry out the procedures in a licensed clinic with an experienced specialist who has the necessary education for these beauty injections.
Today’s medicine has a solution to eliminate this problem, it is the destruction of hyaluronic acid by dissolving it, if the performed hyaluronic acid injection procedure does not meet your expectations.
What is hyaluronidase and how does it work?
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down polymers of hyaluronic acid by its action. This specific enzyme causes accelerated biodegradation of hyaluronic acid, i.e. its decomposition into low molecular weight fragments (then immediately removed through the lymphatic and circulatory system). Small amounts of hyaluronidase are produced in our body in a natural way and participate in the chain of regulation of hyaluronic acid balance of connective tissues, which makes this procedure safe.
When the hyaluronidase solution is distributed to the right area of the body, it breaks down the hyaluronic acid deposits at the injection site, which are absorbed within a few hours (rarely up to 24 hours).
Hyaluronidase injections successfully and quickly break down hyaluronic acid of any structure.
Results are achieved even in cases where several years have passed from the injection of hyaluronic acid to the injection of hyaluronidase.
Does hyaluronidase also destroy the body’s own hyaluronic acid?
Some of the studies show that in some cases the level of own hyaluronic acid decreases, but restores after a very short time, so you do not need to be afraid of a decrease in your own hyaluronic acid level. In our clinic, specialists will select the necessary concentration and amount to dissolve the formed hyaluronic acid deposits.
How is the procedure for dissolving hyaluronan clusters performed?
Hyaluronidase is injected into the former place of hyaluronic injection, places where hyaluronic acid hardens, forms knots (hubs). What amount will be injected depends on an individual basis, the specialist, having assessed the current situation, the filler that was used in the hyaluronic acid procedure and your needs, will choose how much of this special solution is needed to achieve the desired result. This is a safe and effective way to dissolve the hyaluronic filler and restore the natural appearance again.
How many procedures are needed to eliminate hyaluronidase deposits?
Usually one procedure is enough, only in cases where larger quantities are needed or the original procedure has been carried out a long time before, you might need several procedures. The special solution works for 24 hours, it is safe, and the results are quickly noticeable.
Is there a postprocedural period after hyaluronidase injections, allergies?
Allergic reactions to hyaluronidase may occur very rarely, the postprocedural period is short, and after the procedure there may be mild swelling and/or redness at the injection areas. The doctor performing the procedure, will collect an anamnesis, and then perform a skin test, in order to take all necessary measures to ensure that the procedure goes smoothly.
When are hyaluronic acid fillers most often destroyed?
- When hyaluronic acid in the skin forms bumps or begins hardening;
- Results do not meet expectations;
- After injections, deformities, asymmetry are observed, hyaluronic acid itself is injected not into the target area;
- In cases when other complications occur.
In what cases hyaluronidase cannot be used to remove hyaluronic acid?
This enzyme can not be used:
- in case of individual intolerance of the preparation;
- in the presence of acute inflammations and infections, exacerbation of chronic diseases;
- in the presence of malignant formations in the body;
- during pregnancy and lactation.
