How long does it take for hyaluronidase to erase the effects of hyaluronic acid filler?

I had a lip enhancement 3 weeks ago and I didn't like the result so I went today and had hyaluronidase injected. My lips are swollen. How long does it take to see the final results? Thank you

Your question is difficult to answer because I don't know how much of the Hyaluronidase was used. When used to stop necrosis, it is administered aggressively. When used to alter what has already been done cosmetically, we use less. Certainly it's operation is slower, perhaps as much as a week or two, to see the full effect. I would See a board-certified dermatologist with this question.

The hyaluronidase should begin to take effect right away.
