Hi everyone, Today I would like to present you my range of a very rare product – hyaluronidase injections. It is something that no aesthetic practitioner can or should go without. It’s essential to every dermatologist, injectionist, cosmetologist, to EVERYONE who practices dermal filler injections. It is something that allows to fix incorrectly placed hyaluronic acid filler or excess of hyaluronic acid. It is great at dissolving lip filler and fixing such serious issues as post-dermal filler necrosis. I believe that everyone who ever considered facial augmentation with a hyaluronic acid filler must have a few vials of Hyaluronidase at their disposal.
I have to say, it took me two years to source it. In 2015 when I just started in this industry, there was only one product available on the entire medical aesthetic market. It was Vitrase and its price was $200 per vial. And even that was impossible to buy, let alone source it for re-sale. But I like a challenge and I like my clients and I wanted them to have hyaluronidase injections available when they needed them, so I started looking for it. And at the end, I found it and made available to purchase at a more reasonable price.
I sell three types of hyaluronidase. They vary by brand, country they are made in, preparation, strength and cost. As for the active ingredient, it’s the same in all of them: a purified bovine protein extract made from bovine testes. Sounds awful? It sure does. But when you had your face spoiled by an unskilled aesthetic practitioner, I doubt very much you would care what the “fix-it” product is made from. The most important is what this protein, an enzyme, can do for you.
So, the first product from my hyaluronidase range is Hylase Dessau. If you look at the picture, it’s in the middle on the left. It comes in a box of 10 vials, but I sell it by a vial. Hylase Dessau is a highly purified bovine protein extract. One vial of Hylase “Dessau” contains 150 IU. It comes as a freeze dry powder and requires reconstitution with 1 ml of saline solution. The 150 IU vial is a safe and sufficient dose when used to remove 1 ml of unwanted deposits of hyaluronic acid. Hylase Dessau is made in Germany and costs $75 for a vial or $690 for a box of 10 vials.
Second product is made in Spain by Skin Tech Pharma who manufactures a double chin treatment Sagoni Melt and Desinfiltral – another hyaluronidase that I used to sell until COVID outbreak. This product is called FL-Hyaluronidase, contains a high dose of 1500 IU and costs $105. If you look at the picture, it’s in the middle on the right. Just as Hylase Dessau, FL-Hyaluronidase needs to be reconstituted. The amount of saline depends on a chosen strength. For example, 10 ml of saline would give you 150 IU strength while reconstituting it with 5 ml of saline will turn it into 300 IU. And so on: the lesser is the amount of saline, the greater is the strength. Keep in mind though that using a greater strength of hyaluronidase requires a high level of professionalism and experience, otherwise it can easily damage the tissue.
The last product has been already reconstituted. It’s made in Italy in a compounding pharmacy and contains 300 IU. On the picture I hold a vial of Hyaluronidase 300 IU in my hands. It costs $85 and is ready for use.
I would like to give you a word of warning: do not attempt to fix post dermal filler issues yourself. Hyaluronidase injections, be it a small dose of 150 IU or a maximum strength of 1500 IU require knowledge and expertise. If you are not happy with results of facial augmentation with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, go back to the practitioner and insist on them fixing it. They should have hyaluronidase available for such cases. And if they refuse for one reason or another, buy hyaluronidase and take it to a medical professional who would be able to inject it for you. Because working with an enzyme dissolving hyaluronic acid can be challenging due to possible side effects. Besides, it’s advisable to do an allergy test prior to injecting it. And I believe that only a qualified health practitioner can make sure all guidelines of injecting hyaluronidase are followed.
