How Hylenex works

Hylenex is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can dissolve and reverse the effects of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. It contains an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which effectively breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler, allowing your body to safely absorb and metabolize them.

We cannot stress this enough – it is extremely important that you select the right injector for optimal results. Undesirable filler outcomes are almost always avoidable when you choose a provider with extensive training and expertise. At Glow Dermspa, we take great care to administer all of our injectables (including Helenex) in a way that ensures natural-looking results and helps you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Hylenex is an ideal treatment for those who wish to correct overfilled areas or adjust previous filler results. If you’ve experienced undesirable outcomes from past filler treatments, our team at Glow Dermspa can help reverse those effects with Hylenex, giving you a fresh start. This safe and effective option allows you to achieve the desired outcome without waiting for the filler to break down naturally over time.

What to Expect

Your Hylenex appointment at Glow Dermspa will begin with a consultation where your provider will evaluate the treated area and discuss your concerns and goals for the reversal. This allows us to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Once the plan is finalized, your specialist will cleanse the area and may apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Using a fine needle, Hylenex will be strategically injected into the areas where the filler needs to be dissolved.

After the Hylenex treatment, you may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites, which usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days. It is advised to avoid strenuous activities and excessive heat exposure for 24 hours following the procedure. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities and skincare routines shortly after the treatment. Your provider will give you specific aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.

Hylenex Treatment Applications

Hylenex is a versatile treatment that can be used to address a variety of aesthetic concerns related to hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Here are some common applications of Hylenex:

If your lips have been previously overfilled with dermal fillers, there is filler migration, or if there is an imbalance in the volume distribution, Hylenex can be used to dissolve the excess filler and restore a more natural, symmetrical appearance. Our master injectors at Glow want to ensure you have a beautiful, natural result. If seeing us for the first time with previous lip filler, we will do a thorough assessment of your lips to determine if dissolving the old filler is the best option before doing lip filler again.

Hylenex can help to adjust the volume and contours of previously placed cheek filler, achieving a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

If hyaluronic acid fillers were used to correct under eye hollows or tear troughs but resulted in an uneven or overfilled appearance, Hylenex can help to dissolve the filler and refine the treatment outcome.

In cases where previous dermal filler injections for nasolabial folds or marionette lines have led to lumps, uneven distribution or over correction, Hylenex can be used to dissolve the filler and create a smoother, more natural-looking result.

If you have had a non-surgical rhinoplasty using hyaluronic acid fillers and are unhappy with the outcome, Hylenex can be used to dissolve the filler and return your nose to its pre-treatment state.
If you’ve previously received dermal filler injections to enhance your jawline or chin and the results are not as desired, Hylenex can be used to dissolve the filler and adjust the treatment outcome.
Hylenex is effective in addressing lumps, bumps, or other irregularities caused by uneven distribution of dermal fillers. By dissolving the filler, Hylenex can help to create a smoother, more natural-looking result.

In some cases, hyaluronic acid fillers may migrate from the initial injection site to surrounding areas, causing unintended changes to facial features. Hylenex can be used to dissolve the migrated filler and restore your natural appearance.
