Hyaluronidase is an enzyme produced naturally in our bodies which helps break down hyaluronic acid. It is commonly used as an injection treatment for cosmetic purposes such as reducing wrinkles, improving skin texture, and restoring volume to areas with age-related sagging. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, hyaluronidase can also be used to reduce inflammation, promote wound healing, and reduce pain.
Types of Hyaluronidase Treatments
There are several types of hyaluronidase treatments available in New York City. The most common are Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Each of these treatments have their own unique benefits and should be discussed with a qualified provider before being administered.
Botox is an injectable form of neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin A. It is commonly used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines. Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves and muscles to temporarily relax wrinkles and create a smoother and more youthful look.
Dysport is another type of neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin A. Like Botox, Dysport is used to reduce wrinkles, however, it is known to spread further than Botox and may provide better coverage for larger areas. Dysport results typically last about three months.
Juvederm is an injectable filler made from hyaluronic acid. It is used to restore lost volume, fill in deep wrinkles and folds, and plump up thin lips. Results usually last around six months or longer depending on the area treated.
Restylane is an injectable filler made from hyaluronic acid and is similar to Juvederm. It is used to soften wrinkles, add fullness to hollow cheeks and temples, and to enhance lip size and shape. Results typically last six to nine months.
Radiesse is an injectable filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite. It is used to restore fullness to areas that have lost volume due to aging. Results typically last one year or longer depending on the area treated.
Sculptra is an injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid. It is used to restore volume and contour to the face. Results usually last two years or longer depending on the individual’s metabolism.
Potential Side Effects
Hyaluronidase treatments generally have low risks and few side effects. However, some people may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the site of the injection. These side effects usually go away within a few days. Rarely, serious allergic reactions can occur and require immediate medical attention.
