Is there anyone that cannot be treated?

JUVÉDERM should not be used for those who have allergies marked by history of anaphylaxis, a history or presence of multiple severe allergies, or patients with a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins. Juvederm should be used with caution for those on immunosuppressive therapy, as there may be an increased risk of infection. The safety of Juvederm has not been established in breastfeeding females, during pregnancy, or in patients under the age of 18.

What should I expect with my JUVÉDERM treatment?

Some adverse reactions include increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site if you are taking aspirin or ibuprofen before your treatment.

What are post treatment procedures?

For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. These temporary side effects generally resolve themselves within one week. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling, do not apply pressure when using ice-packs. You may apply makeup as usual.
