How much if any experience do you have with hyaluronidase for ridding of too much juvederm?
eyelid surgery

Approx. 6 weeks ago I had too much juvederm put in under my eyes for deep lines. I am puffy and have the tyndall effect (blue line). I'm told hyaluronidase is the solution. Are there any risks of looking worse? How much experience with this, if any, do you have injecting this? I am in Southern CA, if you do not do it, do you have anyone you could recommend. I'm told I am a candidate for blepharoplasty and wish I would have started with that. How many cc's of the enzyme should a Dr. begin with to be very conservative and how long should I wait before going back if the first dose wasn't enough? What is a price range that I should expect to pay? I have interviewed a Dr. who is comfortable doing it since he has experience w/ juvederm but he has never used hyaluronidase. Should I not go to him? Thank you for a reply.

This is a common problem with fillers and inexperienced injectors.
Vitrase will disolve hyaluronic acid. the question is at what level the Hyalouronic acid was injected in.
