What is hyaluronidase?

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that is used to dissolve hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. It works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid molecules, which allows the filler to be rapidly metabolized and eliminated by the body. Hyaluronidase is commonly used in the event of over-filling or migration of a hyaluronic acid-based filler. It can also be used to correct asymmetry or to adjust the results of a previous filler treatment. However, it is important to note that not all fillers can be dissolved with hyaluronidase, and the use of this enzyme should only be performed by a trained and experienced medical professional.
