Hyaluronidase : Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that degrades hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan), a naturally occuring component of the extracellular matrix - the scaffolding that surrounds all our cells. It is also the major part of many injectable fillers such as juvederm and restylane (dermal fillers). I know of no effective topical hyaluronidase products. Injectable hyaluronidase has been used quite safely for years around the eyes by ophthalmologists. It is no more risky than injecting Botox around the eyes...A technique that is done daily thousands of times. ...Read more

I would wait: Without seeing or feeling it, i cannot confidently say you would need more or not. After filler injections (juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) or perlane), feeling some lumpiness is common, but it should not be visible. If it is not visible, leave it alone. If it is visible, massaging it gently 30 sec twice daily helps to soften it. Also, fillers are also firm for 1-2 weeks after injecting, then they soften. ...Read more
