Hylenex is an injectable used to dissolve unwanted, excessive, migrated fillers or just plain old filler. Hylenex contains hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the body that breaks down hyaluronic acid gel. While there are a many variations of hyaluronidase available in the US (Hylenex, Hydase, Vitrase, Amphadase), the preferred brand at The Reclaim MedSpa is Hylenex. The reason to choose Hylenex is because it is a human recombinant form and is the least likely to have an allergic/anaphylaxis reaction. The enzyme catalyzes the dissolution of the filler, reversing its effect without damaging the surface of the skin or the dermal structure. Treating filler with Hylenex is not an exact science. There are huge variations in the amount of Hylenex required to dissolve a filler.
During your consultation, our aesthetic specialist will examine your face, asking questions to clarify exactly what changes you are looking for in your appearance. It is helpful to also provide what type of filler you have had placed, where and when. We will review your medical and surgical records, creating a personalized plan of action for improving your appearance and helping to dissolve the unwanted filler.
You will receive a topical anesthetic or ice pack to numb the area where the injections will be given to make you as comfortable as possible. Hylenex is injected under the skin, into the area where filler was previously located with an ultrasound machine in our Libertyville office. Hylenex treatment session typically takes 15 minutes or more.
After Hylenex injection, expect some mild discomfort, redness, and swelling at the injection site. Swelling is typically minor in nature and does not interfere with normal social activity. Full results are seen in about 2 weeks. Sometimes additional sessions are needed to completely dissolve the remaining filler. And replacement filler can be administered during the 2 week follow up session.

Here are some of the most recent reviews and testimonials of our salon written by our regular clients, guests, and visitors.
I have been going to Elena for 20 years and it is the best decision I’ve ever made. Elena is absolutely the best and so is the entire staff. She cares for me and is passionate about being current with the latest available products and treatments. I love my visits to Reclaim MedSpa where I feel welcomed by all the outstanding staff. From facials, microdermabrasion, Dermapen Skin Resurfacing, new Italian PRX-T3 skin biorevitalizer treatment to fillers/Botox and more, you will be ecstatic that you chose Reclaim MedSpa!
Very knowledgeable, detailed oriented!
Would recommend to anybody. Great team!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Shapiro for Botox for over 15 years. Before I found him, I’ve been to a variety of spas and doctors and was never quite satisfied with the results. Dr Shapiro took the time to listen to my areas of concern and has been consistently providing me with excellent results. My face looks natural, I can still make all the silly expressions I want, yet the wrinkles and fine lines are gone. As a plastic surgeon and an ENT, Dr Shapiro really is the best!
Nothing but good things to say about this spa and their professionals. I saw Khrystyna for my hormonal acne and I cannot thank her enough for helping me battle my problem for over 5 years and achieve the results that I have been yearning for years. She did a very personal treatment plan for me, and one treatment in specific she did was the PRXT, a fantastic facial!! So glad that they have this on their menu it's the only thing that helped my melasma!
Elena and Dr Shapiro are wonderful to work with and are extremely knowledgeable and professional. They are very clear on the recommended procedures and expected outcomes. I could not imagine going anywhere else.
Wow is all I can say. As a male client they definitely make you feel like a King with their procedures and services. Great Botox services and facials. Definitely recommend this place.
Khrystyna the spa director and Dr.Shapiro are one of a kind team running this place!
Look forward to seeing you grow.
Great advise and professional service. The only place I come to trust.
Personable and friendly staff. Happy with my services and results. Thank you Dr. Shapiro, Elena and Khrystyna for my treatments! :)
Wow Wow Wow! That's all i can say about this beautiful place! The staff is so informative, friendly, and do an excellent job every time! They are always able to provide an answer to any problem, and will guide you to a perfect treatment that will be suitable for your skin type!
I recently went to reclaim Med Spa, this was my first experience with any treatment for rejuvenating my skin. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and put me at ease. I got their new Italian PRX-T3 skin biorevitalizer treatment for my face. It was amazing at how simple the treatment was and that there was literally no downtime. The experience was similar to getting a simple massage, and the product was simply washed away with water. I look forward to future treatments. I would highly recommend not only this product but especially this particular location.
This place was recommended to me by a friend and I am usually very hesitant with these kind of things, but I felt very welcome and comfortable as a guy in a spa. Khrystyna gave me a skin analysis using a camera which was very interesting to me to be able to know what is going on with my skin. Definitely will be back for another men’s facial and recommend the spa!
Dr. Shapiro is amazing! Highly recommend him!
I absolutely love this place. Everybody is so friendly and kind. I got lip filler and I am in love with the results. Anastasiya is amazing!! I recommend her a 100%. She is the best.
So many compliments on my skin! People tell me my skin glows. Elena is a master at what she does. She is knowledgeble and talented. She has taken my skin to a whole new level. I am addicted to the PRXT. Highly highly recommend
I've been battling my face imperfections for years-specifically acne! It also doesn't help that I'm very impatient and I need to see results right away-but I think that stems from the fact that many products on the market never really worked for me or maybe I just didn't find the right kind of team to trust! So I decided to re-visit Reclaim MedSpa and honestly it was the best decision ever!
Best and Most professional Doctor and team. Did my lip injection and Botox with him and couldn’t be more happier! Will be your permanent client :)
I have been to this spa on numerous occasions and always received great treatment and great results. I highly recommend Reclaim as they are easy to schedule with and have such a wide array of high quality treatments with an amazing doctor (Dr. Shapiro) on site.
I have been coming to see Khrystyna for a few months now to improve the health of my skin and cool sculpting for my chin. Every time I come, I look and feel my best. Improvement at each appointment with amazing results. Will definitely be a long-term client! Highly recommend this med spa!
All I can say is Wow! What an amazing place, friendly staff, answered all my questions thoroughly! Hands down best experience ever!
