What is hyaluronidase?
Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi believes every patient deserves to have the best outcome when it comes to his or her filler treatments. Injecting fillers to create a certain desired look takes skill and an artistic approach. For this reason, Dr. Khorsandi performs all of his own injections so that he can continue to tweak and perfect the dosage amounts per the patient’s needs. Sometimes, Dr. Khorsandi sees patients who have experienced undesirable results following a dermal filler injection from another practitioner. These poor results could be caused from using the wrong filler product, or using too much in one location. Individuals that come to VIP Plastic Surgery seeking improvement may be candidates for hyaluronidase.

"Dr. Khorsandi is an amazing plastic surgeon! He corrected a terrible over filling I had performed by another doctor, tightened the skin around my eye area and has made me look 100 times better! He truly is a very skilled surgeon that makes a point of listening to you. He is a huge advocate of just making you look the way you should, not pulled or "over done". He is very kind, considerate and down to earth. Now I've found Dr. Khorsandi, I will always use him for routine maintenance, botox and anything else that I need. Thank you again Dr. Khorsandi for making me feel like me again!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 28, 2015
Am I A Candidate For Hyaluronidase?
The best candidates for a hyaluronidase treatment from Dr. Khorsandi include men and women who have had dermal filler injections made with hyaluronic acid and are not happy with the results. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid include Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, Perlane, and BELOTERO. Whether too much filler was injected, the wrong filler was used, or you simply don't like the results, if you are in good overall health, you are typically a good candidate. People who have had other types of dermal fillers that do not use hyaluronic acid are NOT candidates for this procedure.
How it Works
Hyaluronidase is considered a reversal agent for hyaluronic acid-based fillers. This includes fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Belotero. Hyaluronidase is essentially a compounded enzyme that acts as a dissolvent, which causes the breakdown of hyaluronic acid. When injected, it can help even out a poor injection to create a smoother result, or remove a filler that has been placed incorrectly. Many times, the dosage used is small, just enough to create the subtle result the patient desired to begin with.
After Your Injections
Hyaluronidase, just like any derma filler, is injected right into the area where the filler needs to be dissolved or tweaked. Lidocaine is used to help numb the area in order to help control any discomfort. Patients may bruise from treatment, but this lasts for just a few days. Patients will be able to see visible improvement and results within the first 1-2 days.
Luckily, a round hyaluronidase is not as pricy as the initial round of injection medication. The average cost is about $100-$200 per injection.
What fillers qualify?
Patients who are not happy with their filler treatment with products that do not contain hyaluronic acid are not candidates for Hyaluronidase. Dr. Khorsandi will assess the filler results and consult on the best approach to remove it. This may include a short surgery to open the skin and surgically remove the product.
