Hyalase® (Hyaluronidase) Post Care Instructions
Hyalase is an enzyme which breaks down “XXXXXXXX” (due to Australian regulations we are not allowed to name the substance) fillers, but it can also break down naturally occurring hyaluronic acid present in the body. The results can be unpredictable and the effect dramatic with possible loss of volume (as the filler is being removed). Although some of the effects can be immediate, it can take up to 2 weeks for the final results to be seen and the procedure may need to be repeated.
Hyalase® administration can result in anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) which in itself is life threatening and requires immediate medical attention. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction can include shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, difficulty swallowing, swelling of the tongue, eyelids, lips, hoarseness of the voice, stomach pain, nausea or diarrhoea.
If you have any of the above symptoms, please report to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department or call 000 for an ambulance.
After the procedure some other common injection-related reactions might occur. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection site. They have generally been described as mild to moderate and typically resolve spontaneously after a few days after injection. Bruising may occasionally be more significant.
Your next appointment
As hyalase may take multiple treatments (typically 1-3 treatments are required), please make your appointment for 2-4 weeks to review your results.
