Looks like alot of us got wiped out on here.   Before I looked into everything I Google this new Juvederm XC n found 3 drs in my area n got all three to tell me price n it was from $700 - $900 each syringe.  One Dr said results are not really immediate.  I've never heard that before.  Anyway I was about to make n appointment but glad I went the other way instead.  I'm happy n want to get happier.

I had a very bad experience with it and am fighting a biofilm infection and granulomas. I think every doctor should offer an allergy test for any filler to their patients as a precaution. It might not prevent an adverse reaction but it sure doesn't hurt. I would never have done this if I knew this was even a possibility. My doctor did not know how to treat this and said I need to find someone who has had experience with reactions. No one should inject any filler if they don't know how to treat a problem that may arise.

that's such a shame, how can this happen with real juvederm?

It was Restylane and but because they were so close together no one can determine which caused the infection. The infection is not responding to antibiotics and the granuloma couldn't be dissolved so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place because I don't want steroid injections. It is a nightmare and they shouldn't advertise that Hyaluronidase will do the trick.

Hi 4, it wont let me reply but do u mean it was injected close to juveni poison? Only way to get rid of it is a t least 6 day course of steroids n kenolog injections into the area. I still have some bad stuff in me n have to do it all again too. Only other thing that helps me not to feel so sick is to stay on CLINDAMYCIN a couple a day for week then one a day forever... let me know if u can find where to get the steroids n kenolog n needles? I did it myself once n I'll do it again on the rest of my mouth.

Hi are you saying that juveni is poison??

No, this was Restylane and Voluma. It might have been the product or that my skin wasn't cleaned enough before the injection. I can't say for sure.

I have no idea and would only let a qualified doctor do that. I don't want steroids. I have been on Cipro but it hasn't helped.

It doesn't really help with the swelling but it is used for granulomas that can't be dissolved. There are side effects which is why I don't want to do it. I had one injection and it didn't help.

Yes, just look up the posts on this site. That's why I've had to do so many things to get rid of some n I'm still going thru terrible, terrible infections.

I am an RN...totally agree....let the buyer beware....always ask for a test for any product being injected...So sorry you had such an experience

Also....any doctor who does not know how to handle an adverse reaction to what he is injecting should be reported to the medical board....Hippocratic oath "first do no harm"....all MD's take this oath...hold them to it!
