Hyaluronidase Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists are experts in cosmetic injectable treatments including hyaluronidase injections when they are needed.

What are Hyaluronidase injections?

Hyaluronidase injections are the ‘antidote’ for hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and will reverse the negative effects you are experiencing. These injections will dissolve the unwanted filler to restore your skin to its original condition. In some cases, only partial correction may be advised to be the desired results you’re looking for.

Keep in mind that hyaluronidase injections only work to reverse hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. The most common filler brands that fall under this category are:

  • Restylane®
  • Belotero
  • Teoxane/RHA

Our team will inject the hyaluronidase injections into the same tissue area that the unwanted dermal filler was placed in. The breakdown of filler and signs of reversal start to show quickly–usually within the first 24 hours. At times, depending on your unique situation, you may need to come in for an additional reversal treatment. 

Why would someone want to reverse their filler injections?

More people than ever before are taking advantage of revolutionary cosmetic injection procedures that help them restore lost volume and achieve facial rejuvenation. It’s never been easier to achieve your desired look through dermal fillers if you have a trusted and experienced provider. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are safe, effective, and can truly restore your more youthful appearance and confidence. The results of these dermal fillers usually last anywhere from 1-2 years depending on your unique concerns.

However, with the rise of these revolutionary cosmetic injections, there are unfortunately many situations where someone is treated by an untrained or inexperienced injector, which leaves the patient unhappy with their results. 

There are improper injection techniques that are commonly used, and sometimes the injector may have advised the patient that they needed too much filler, which results in an unnatural, overdone look.

We always recommend as a rule of thumb to do your research before being treated by a new injector. Shopping for the most experience and board certifications should be the priority over shopping for the lowest prices.

Because the results of hyaluronic acid fillers last so long after treatment, if you are unsatisfied with the results, it can feel daunting to keep living with a result that makes you unhappy. 

Thankfully, if you are facing any of these situations discussed, our highly-experienced, dermatologist-led team can reverse or correct these undesired changes by administering hyaluronidase injections.

Why PotozkinMD for your hyaluronidase injections?

It’s highly recommended to have a board-certified dermatologist that you trust perform the hyaluronidase injections. Your provider must know the correct location to inject as well as the correct amount of solution to use.

The expertise and delicate care of dissolving filler is just as necessary as it is for injecting filler. Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis are both board-certified dermatologists that specialize in minimally and non-invasive cosmetic procedures and have extensive experience in dermal filler injections and reversals. 

If you’ve been negatively impacted by an experience with another injector, our team welcomes you. Our top priority is patient experience and ensuring you walk out of our practice feeling confident and loving your results.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
