What is Hylenex Filler Reversal?
Hylenex is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. It does this without hurting the skin’s surface or the structure of the dermis. On the market, there are several filler reversal agents. Still, Hylenex is the least likely to cause an allergic or anaphylactic reaction.
Usually, one vial of Hylenex dissolves about 1 ml of filler, but this depends on the type of filler, how long it has been in the body, if there is an inflammatory granuloma or nodule, and how urgent the situation is. If the filler needs to be changed, it can be done in 3–7 days.
How is Hylenex used?
Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face and lips are made of gel-like molecules that hold onto water. These molecules give the skin firmness, keep it hydrated, boost collagen production, and keep it flexible.
Hyaluronic acid is found in almost all dermal fillers on the market today. When dermal fillers cause unwanted or harmful effects, a reversal agent called Hylenex (hyaluronidase) is injected into the skin to dissolve the filler.
So, whether you had side effects or are just unhappy with the results of your face or lip filler treatment, the Eastside Aesthetics by Lena experts can help improve and reverse unwanted results caused by poor treatment by undoing the effect and bringing your face back to its natural look.

Things To Consider About Hylenex
Aside from being a recombinant human form, it is the least likely to cause an allergic or anaphylactic reaction. Hylenex filler removal is not an exact science because the amount of Hylenex needed to dissolve a filler can vary considerably. The important things to think about are:
- How well things link up
- Individual variations
- Granulomas or nodules that cause inflammation need higher doses.
- The time that the filler is in the body
Most Hylenex treatments take less than 5 minutes and are done in comfort. It is often mixed with lidocaine to make the area more comfortable and numb it for 30 minutes.
After that, HA fillers should dissolve in a few minutes to hours. Yet, keep in mind that the injection may cause some swelling that goes away in a day or two.
Also, if the filler needs to be changed, this treatment can be done in 3 days. If more treatment is needed (and it’s not an emergency), the same injections are given again three days later.
Before Your Scheduled an Appointment
Before treatment, avoid blood thinners like Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Motrin, and Advil, as well as garlic, fish oil, vitamins A and E, ginseng, and Ginkgo. Also, don’t drink alcohol during the 24 hours before treatment.
Is Hylenex Filler Reversal Necessary?
Most patients are pleased with their filler treatments, which look natural. But there are still patients who are unhappy with the fillers they got at another doctor’s office or medspa.
Again, before deciding to dissolve your filler, you should wait at least two weeks for the swelling to disappear. Most of the time, Hylenex is used to treat:
- Lip filler
- Undereye filler
- Liquid rhinoplasty
- Vascular occlusion
When will I be able to see the results?
Depending on the type of HA filler used, the HA breaks down in a few hours or even minutes. Due to cross-linking of molecules, nodules, or granulomas and the length of time the filler was in the body, some types of filler will need more than one vial or session of Hylenex.
What are the side effects of dissolving filler with Hylenex?
Hylenex could cause the following side effects:
- Swollen hands, feet, or other parts of your body
- The injection site hurts, swells, itches, or turns red
Only let a plastic surgeon who is board-certified give you injections. The best way to avoid getting Hylenex injections is to get good filler results first. Your results aren’t based on the product but the injector, so always work with a professional you trust.
In Eastside Aesthetics by Lena, our doctors have experience as injector plastic surgeons. Each had special training and knew a lot about how the face works. Ensure your safety with us and let us help you do the rest.

The best people for Hylenex are those who were unhappy with the results of dermal fillers and want to look like they did before. Hylenex is also suitable for people who got dermal fillers from someone who wasn’t licensed or trained and now need help from a professional to reverse the effects.
Does Hylenex Filler Removal Hurt?
People who have taken Hylenex often say that it made them feel like they were on fire. But there is no way to stop this feeling but putting ice on the area makes it feel much less painful. Most often, people feel fine a few minutes after the procedure.
