Hyalase, also known as hyaluronidase, is an enzyme used as a dissolver in cosmetic procedures. It breaks down and dissolves hyaluronic acid-based treatments that have been previously used. A dissolver is used when patients desire an adjustment or reversal of the treatment effects or complications arise due to overfilling or asymmetry.

It works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid molecules, allowing the body’s natural processes to absorb and metabolise the material. This enzyme helps to expedite the process of reversing the effects of volumising treatments, restoring the treated area to its pre-filler state.

What To Expect

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the cosmetic dissolver take to dissolve?

Immediately after the treatment, it will begin breaking down and softening, although seeing it completely dissolve may take up to two weeks. This can vary between clients based on the location of the treatment and the amount to be dissolved.

How many treatments will I need?

Achieving desired corrections might involve multiple treatments over time. The number of sessions can vary based on treatment type, the volume to dissolve, and the time the treatment has been present. Older, larger volumes could require three to four sessions, spaced over two weeks, for full resolution, while most cases achieve desired results in one or two sessions.

Can all volumising treatments be dissolved?

Not all treatments can be dissolved. The dissolving agent is effective only on a temporary treatment and is composed of natural substances commonly used for cheek and lip augmentation. However, this method cannot reverse semi-permanent treatments like collagen stimulations.

Will it dissolve my natural hyaluronic acid?

This is a common concern when discussing the dissolving process. The enzyme used to dissolve can affect both natural and injected hyaluronic acid. However, our skin’s natural hyaluronic acid replenishes quickly, with a half-life of around 24 hours, so any natural hyaluronic acid dissolved is rapidly corrected.

What is recovery like?

Aftercare for cosmetic dissolver involves a short recovery period with initial swelling, lasting around 24 to 48 hours in areas like lips and under the eyes. Once the swelling subsides, the volume loss becomes evident, often with immediate improvements. Some areas may have temporary skin laxity due to puffy or misplaced past treatments.

Other post-session effects can include mild to moderate redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness, typically resolving within a few days. It is important to adhere to specific aftercare instructions for a smooth and successful recovery.

What is used as a cosmetic dissolver?

Hyalase, or hyaluronidase, is an enzyme used as a cosmetic dissolver in procedures to break down and dissolve hyaluronic acid-based treatments.

Will this work if my previous treatment has moved?

If you’ve experienced displacement or migration, dissolving is the best solution. The cosmetic dissolver is injected precisely into the area where it has migrated and works quickly once injected. Most of the effects occur within 24 hours of the procedure, with the dissolving results taking up to seven days to be completely visible.

Will my volumising treatment dissolve naturally overtime?

While it is true that some volumising treatments dissolve and are discarded by the body, treatments made of hyaluronic acid must have a source of hyaluronidase to break them down. This means that for it to dissolve, your body must produce a regular source of hyaluronidase at the injection site over a prolonged period. Your body does not want to regularly produce hyaluronidase because this would cause your skin and other organs to break down.

Does dissolving hurt?

Hyaluronidase (or hyalase) can sting significantly when injected. However, we use an anaesthetic mixed with the injection to remove any sting. A topical anesthetic may also be used if multiple injections are required, but most clients feel the treatment is comfortable.
