Does Topilase Treatment Always Work?
Topilase works to break down hyaluronic acid, which is in the superficial layers of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid on its own has a very short half-life and does not last very long unless it is stabilised in some way. Different dermal fillers are created in different ways, by bonding the hyaluronic acid with itself or with other materials to create a stable longer lasting gel.
Topilase is more effecting in treating some fillers than others, depending on the manufacturing process.
Topliase will not help reduce superficial lumps due to other fillers or gels. Nor will it treat superficial lumps if the problem is caused by an alternative reaction and not just the gel itself.
