While dermal fillers treatments with products like Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Restylane and Belotero are highly effective and create beautiful results, occasionally the treatments need to be refined or optimized. Fortunately, Hylenex (Hyaluronidase, Vitrase, Wydase) can be used to “dissolve” hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. Hylenex is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid and allows the remnants to be removed by the body.
Dr Weber is extremely good at explaining the procedure in layman's terms and gives careful instructions for caring for your nose after the procedure! He makes himself available at anytime to answer any questions and has been helpful in the recovery process. I feel I've healed 10x quicker!
I am so pleased to have Dr Weber do my surgery! My husband and I had breathing problems as a result of injuries to our noses and waited until we both had enough time off to get it done! It was well worth the wait! We breathe better then ever and even though it has only been a week of recovery, I can honestly say I'd recommend Dr Weber to anyone looking for a beautiful nose! Im so happy and I not only look better but my self confidence has gone up! I was so scared to do the procedure for so long because I didn't want to look different. I was scared it would be a botched job especially since I'm Asian and my relatives who have done theirs look so bad! He definitely applied his artistic skill to create an ethnically appropriate bridge for me! In other words, my nose job doesn't look like a stick got stuck up my nose! I look the same as I did before prior to the injury to my nose and I am very very pleased with the result! Thank you so much Dr Weber! You are amazing and extremely talented!
Insurance paid for my procedure!

Dr. Weber has extensive experience revising dermal fillers placed by other less experienced injectors in the Denver area. The most common reasons for filler refinement are overfilled areas of the face and lumps or bumps and irregular contour of filled areas. The results of Hylenex (Hyaluronidase) treatment are typically seen within hours to one day. Depending upon the dose used and the number of injections, existing filler can be reduced, softened, contoured or completely removed.
If you are near the Denver area and have filler related issues, please contact our office at (303) 792-2224 or request a consultation online. In cases where abiding fillers or fillers that cannot be dissolved were used, improvement can often be created with a strategic placement of a small amount of additional filler. In either case, our goal is to remove any issues you have with your filler and turn a filler complication into a beautiful result.
Dr. Weber frequently provides second opinion consultation and refinement treatments for poorly placed filler or overfill for the following reasons:
- Overfilled undereye area
- Puffy bags in the undereye area
- Lumps, bumps or lines in any facial area
- Asymmetric cheeks or over filled cheeks
- Overfilled lips and “duck lips”
- Bluish discoloration or Tyndall effect resulting from overly superficial filler placement
