We congratulate Vartanian et al on their investigation of the effects of hyaluronidase on Restylane (Q-Med AB, Uppsala, Sweden), a nonanimal, stabilized hyaluronic acid in test subjects' arms.1 This excellent work has received the wide attention it deserves, a tribute to Archives’ broad readership. A number of misconceptions arising from this study, however, have made their way into common clinical practice and are now even secondarily cited.2
