In brief: Hyaluronidase
If there is too much juvederm, then your doctor can inject an enzyme that dissolves the hyaluronic acid in juvederm. The enzyme, hyaluronidase, can dissolve the product very quickly.
I have seen dramatic improvement in less than one full day.

Agreed, this is the beauty of Juvederm and other hyaluronic acid products. They are easily dissolvable with hyaluronidase.

In brief: Hyaluronidase
The off label use of hyaluronidase may be useful in helping to dissolve accumulations of juvederm.
An allergy test may be administered prior to treatment.

In brief: HA Enzyme
The hyaluronic acid (ha) reversing enzyme hyaluronidase can be used to help break up and get rid of unwanted ha fillers.
It can be effective, but remember that nothing is a magic wand. Get advice from a well trained provider before getting this done... There may be other non-invasive ways to manage your filler depending on the situation.

In brief: Time or injection
Juvederm will be slowly reabsorbed on its own.
In some cases this process can be sped up by injecting something called hyaluronidase.

In brief: Vitrase
To remove juvederm, your physician can inject vitrase which is an enzyme that breaks up the juvederm. This may require one session or perhaps a few follow ups.

In brief: Hyaluronidase
You don't have to live with a botched filler job.
There is an "antidote" hyaluronidase is an enzyme that will dissolve juvederm and other fillers that are made out of hyaluronic acid. If the doctor who injected you is unable to reverse the unwanted effects, find another doctor who is experienced with dermal filler injections.

Juverderm also known as hyaluronic acid can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase which is injected into the treated area.
Otherwise it should dissolve within 6 to 8 months.

In brief: Hyaluronidase
There are basically 2 options for "removing" Juvéderm. The first would be to just wait until your body reabsorbs it, generally 6-9 months.
The other option would be to use hyaluronidase. Because the Juvéderm family is made of hyaluronic acid it can be dissolved with Hyaluronidase. For more on Juvederm: http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/non-surgical-procedures/injectables/

In brief: Hyaluronidase
This product will last between 4 months ( lips) and 14 months (cheeks) other areas about 8 so its not permanent.
If it is really bothering yu have the person that injected you reverse it with vytrase ( hyaluronidase) it breaks down the juvederm but you can put more juvederm in for a few weeks and you most likely will get a black and blue in the area

Sometimes you can smoothen out lumps / bumps from juvederm by applying local pressure.
If this does not work and the result bothers you, then you can go back to your physician and consider the use of hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler.

In brief: Your doc can
There is a medication called hyaluronidase which will dissolve juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) Perlane and any other filler made out of hyaluronic acid.
It won't work to dissolve radiesse.

In brief: Removing Juvederm
One can wait until your body gradually dissolves the juvederm, which may take several months.
Your plastic surgeon or dermatologist may be able to "squeeze" some excess out from the skin. Lastly, the medication hyaluronidase may be injected which quickly removes the juvederm. Speak with your juvederm specialist to help determine appropriate options for you.

In brief: Injections or time
There is an injection called wydase which dissolves the juvederm.
The alternative is to wait till it goes away on its own, usually 6-12 months.

In brief: Too much Juvederm
In some cases, you can massage some the juvederm away from the area that is overfilled to a point which you may be satisfied with the result.
However, hyaluronidase may be injected by your surgeon to remove excess juvederm or the nodules caused by a local reaction to the filler.
