Juvederm and hyaluronidase

Hi I got a non surgical nose job in February, I had very little juvederm put into my nose (0.2 cc) targetting my nostril area. I didnt like the results and went to get it removed with hyaluronidase. Ive gone 3 times because I didnt see it going back to normal. Now i see a little difference, but its not my same nose as before. My nostril feels a bit deeper than before also. Has the hyaluronidase done more damage and taken away my natural hyaluronic acid and if it did will that ever come back? Or is there still juvederm? Or scar tissue? This has ruined my sanity. Will my nose ever go back to the way it was?

    Hi Roselove,

    I would try and be as patient as you can. Juvederm can last up to 12 months and on average 9 months. Despite the use of hyaluronidase some HA product may still be present and there is likely scar. The nose is a very compact structure and swelling can take time to disappear.

    Hi Roselove.
    Without photographs, it is difficult to give accurate advice. I would give your nose a little more time to restore itself back to near normal again. Although the hyaluronidase may have dissolved all the filler material, there may be some residual swelling and scarring left that is causing the undesired appearance. I would continue ongoing follow up with your treating doctor. 
    All the very best.
