Hyalase (Hyaluronidase) - Dissolving Dermal Fillers in Singapore
Regret having Fillers injected?
Unhappy with your Filler results?
Unexpected bumps from Fillers?
It is not the end of the world. You do not need to wait 1 to 2 years for the dermal filler to disappear.
With Hyalase, Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that have been placed incorrectly or in excessive amounts, can be dissolved safely and naturally.
What is Hyalase?
Hyalase contains Hyaluronidase which is a naturally occurring enzyme that breaks down Hyaluronic acid.
Both Hyaluronic acid and Hyaluronidase exist naturally in our body.
The body produces hyaluronic acid whilst hyaluronidase is responsible for hyaluronic acid turnover by breaking down hyaluronic acid. Think of them as Yin and Yang.
How is Hyalase administered?
Hyalase is injected using a tiny sharp needle or micro cannula into the targeted treatment area.
Dr Edwin prefers to use the sharp needle for a localized area such as nose / chin while larger areas such as cheeks are best treated using the micro cannula technique.
How long before I see results? What is the duration of treatment?
Results are usually seen within 24 hours of treatment.
Treatment duration for each area is 15 minutes.
Dr Edwin will schedule a review after 1 week so as to allow time for swelling to subside.
What are the common side effects?
Swelling and bruising is commonly seen after Hyalase injections.
These are temporary and subside after 4 to 7 days.
Allergic reactions have been reported, but these are very rare.
How many sessions do i need?
For most patients, 1 session will be enough. However, if large volumes of dermal fillers are present, a second session may be required to dissolve the filler completely.
