Answers to all your questions about JUVÉDERM® and the treatment process

Injection site responses across the collection are mostly mild-to-moderate in severity.These reactions may occur immediately, or may be delayed, and can last for up to a week. Injection in the lip may cause more swelling and bruising due to the unique physiology of this area. As with any injection, there is a small risk of infection. This is not a complete list of side effects. If inflammatory reactions persist for more than one week, or if any other side effects develop, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

JUVÉDERM® Safety information:
JUVÉDERM® is a family of injectable implant products intended to smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance lips, treat perioral lines and oral commissures and restore lost volume to the cheeks and jawline.
Your physician will ask about your medical history to determine if JUVÉDERM® products are appropriate for you. Tell your practitioner if you have:
• Severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis, multiple severe allergies, allergies to hyaluronic acid or other filler products, or allergies to lidocaine or other local anaesthetics.
• A history of autoimmune disease, recurrent sore throats, rheumatic fever, epilepsy, or porphyria.
The following are important treatment considerations for you to discuss with your practitioner before treatment in order to help avoid unsatisfactory results and complications:
• You are currently taking medications which prolong bleeding, such as acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or anticoagulants, as with any injection, you may experience prolonged bleeding. You should inform your practitioner about any medications you are currently taking.
• You have recently had other skin surface treatments (such as laser treatment, skin peels or dermabrasion) or have previously used fillers.
• You have skin infections or inflammation such as acne or cold sores.
• You scar frequently.
• You are pregnant or breastfeeding, or you are under the age of 18 years (under the age of 21 years if treating the lips), as the safety of JUVÉDERM® products has not been established.
Potential side effects associated with JUVÉDERM® products include temporary injection-site reactions such as redness, swelling, itching, pain, firmness, bumps, bruising, and discolouration.
These reactions may occur immediately or may be delayed and may last for up to a week. Injections in the lips may cause more swelling and bruising due to the unique physiology of this area. As with any injection, there is a risk of infection. This is not a complete list of side effects. If inflammatory reactions persist for more than one week, or if any other side effects develop, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Facial filler treatments are temporary, so if you decide not to have any more, then any remaining hyaluronic acid will be naturally absorbed into your skin, and the effects will fade away.
To maintain your results, book follow-up treatments at 9–24 month intervals, depending on the product(s) you choose.
