JUVÉDERM® is the #1 doctor-recommended facial filler and has undergone extensive clinical testing. Your healthcare practitioner will ask about your medical history to determine if JUVÉDERM® products are appropriate for you.
Tell your healthcare 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 anesthetics.
- A history of autoimmune disease, recurrent sore throats, rheumatic fever, epilepsy, or porphyria.
- 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 healthcare 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 21 years if treating the lips), as the safety of JUVÉDERM® products has not been established for that age.
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.
