When Good Fillers Go Bad

From time to time all injectors will over correct an area or experience an asymmetry.

With the common hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Prevell Silk it is possible to reverse or dissolve the unwanted filler with a product called hyaluronidase.

This product is marketed as Amphidase or Vitrase and is a safe and effective way to dissolve unwanted filler in 24 to 48 hours.

Dr. Niamtu has treated numerous local and out of town patients to reverse filler mistakes from other offices in patients that either got too much filler or got filler in a place they did not want it. The injections are simple and the effect is rapid, usually in 1-2 days. There are no significant risks and no recovery.

The above patients presented with excess filler in the teartrough regions of the lower eyelids. They are shown before and after injection of hyaluronidase by Dr. Niamtu. The unwanted filler was successfully dissolved.

The video below shows Dr. Niamtu injecting hyaluronadase to dissolve excess unwanted fillers.
