Dissolving Juvederm and Radiesse
I have read some of your answers and I apologize if I am asking a question that has been answered before. You have mentioned that both radiesse and juvederm can be dissolved (or dissipated)--radiesse with kenalog and juvederm with "an enzyme." What are the side effects of this? Also, I had Radiesse injected about 6 months ago and the juvederm about a year ago. Is this too late to have them dissolved? Many dermatologists I have spoken to aren't aware of this--is this an area that you specialize in? Do people come to you to fix others' overfills?
How long does the kenalog take to work?
Thank you for your time.
the enzyme that dissolves juvederm or restylane is called hyaluronidase and it really dissolves them completely. it is very safe to use, i do it all the time. yes, my practice is exclusively non surgical aesthetics, so i specialize in this kind of stuff. the enzyme takes about a day or less to work
your juvederm should be mostly gone, but i'd be happy to take a look and see what we can dissolve.
radiesse can't be dissolved, but the appearance of lumps can be reduced with some kenalog. its important not to put too much in - you can get an indentation in the skin. the kenalog takes a week or two to work.
hope that helps
