When Cosmetic Procedures Go Wrong

We have all seen people who have gone a little extreme with surgery or cosmetic procedures.  The dreaded duck lips and full cheeks that give people a very unnatural look. Let’s be honest, how many of us have indulged in watching the show Botched, which is dedicated to cosmetic procedures gone very wrong? 

When cosmetic injections are done by a skilled provider, the risk of getting a bad outcome is greatly reduced, but with any procedure things can always happen.  What if we told you though that there could be a way to UNDO what was done?
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Voluma can be dissolved using a medication called Hyaluronidase.  It is an injectable enzyme solution that speeds the natural breakdown of hyaluronic acid and is used to counteract the effects of hyaluronic acid-based fillers. 
It can be injected right into areas that were over treated with filler. 

Now keep in mind not all fillers contain hyaluronic acid and not everyone is trained at how to inject this medication.  Make sure to ask your dermatology provider if you could benefit from this treatment.
