Dermal filler injections are used for many cosmetic treatments, from plumping thin lips to reshaping facial features. When performed by a plastic surgeon or experienced cosmetic injector, the results can be stunning. However, not all facial or lip filler injections turn out as desired. If you are unhappy with your filler injection outcome, Maia Plastic Surgery offers hyaluronidase injections to dissolve the filler under your skin.

What Are Hyaluronidase Injections?

Many facial fillers use hyaluronic acid to add volume under the skin. Juvederm®, Belotero® and Restylane® are some of the most popular brands of hyaluronic acid that can be injected into lips, cheeks, tear troughs and other areas to plump the area. When the results of hyaluronic acid injections are not acceptable or cause complications, they can be reversed with hyaluronidase injections.

Hyaluronidase injections contain the enzyme hyaluronidase, a natural-occurring enzyme that is found in the liver, kidneys, blood and other areas in the body. This enzyme dissolves hyaluronic acid crosslinks, allowing the filler to be broken up and eliminated quicker.

Filler Dissolving Treatment

If you have a lumpy appearance to your skin after facial filler treatment or the results do not look natural, you can have many filler injections reversed. Hyaluronidase injections can dissolve hyaluronic acid treatments and begin working in less than an hour. Instead of waiting for several months or more for fillers to dissolve on their own, hyaluronidase injections partially dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers immediately. There may be some swelling from the injections for a few days, but most of the filler should be gone within a week.

Not all filler injections are reversible. Only hyaluronic acid filler can be removed with hyaluronidase injections. Other filler injections like Radiesse® or Sculptra® are not reversible and cannot be dissolved with this treatment.

If you want to undo the results of a hyaluronic filler treatment for any reason, come see our aesthetic team at Maia Plastic Surgery. We offer filler dissolving treatments with hyaluronidase injections at our clinics in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area. Contact our Tysons Corner or Chevy Chase locations to schedule your treatment.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
