A 20-year-old female asked:
If i am allergic to hyaluronidase, can i still continue with hyaluronic acid filler injections?

I would recommend not using hyaluronic acid fillers as hyaluronidase is the only available rescue agent in the event of an injection being placed intravascularly, in a poor aesthetic location, or in a location where it is applying adverse compression on another structure.
