What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid filler injection is an increasingly popular technique utilized for volume replacement, noninvasive skin rejuvenation, and soft tissue augmentation. Endogenous hyaluronic acid is a major structural component of the extracellular matrix of the skin and acts to maintain hydration in the dermis.

Hyaluronic acid can be automatically absorbed by the body within one to two days. When aging a delay in this process occur. The skin get less hydrated and the volume of your face decrease.

Dissolving hyaluronic acid with hyaluronidase
When you’re not happy with the result of your treatment, you can dissolve temporary fillers with hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that catalyze the degradation of hyaluronic acid. When using hyaluronidase the hyaluronic acid splits in sugar and water. Both harmless substances that can absorbed by the body.
A treatment with hyaluronidase is almost riskless. In less then 1% of the circumstances clients show an allergic reaction to hyaluronidase. Despite the low rate, we always check if a client is allergic to the substance. Before a treatment with hyaluronidase, we will inject a bit of the substance into the skin of the arm to see if the client is allergic.
