Juvederm does not contain penicillin. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid  So you should not have a allergic reaction to Juvederm.

Yes, you can go ahead and get your Juvederm safely.  There is no cross-reaction between penicillin and juvederm, so people who are allergic to one, won't be allergic to the other.

Juvederm And Drugs Do Not Cross-React

+1

Juvederm and Penicillin are completely different chemical compounds. Juvederm is composed of a natural substance, hyaluron, of which the body is very familiar so it is not a drug. Penicillin is a synthetically-derived drug that is not natural to the body. For these reasons, there is no relationship between a Penicillin allergy and any risk of reaction from a Juvederm injectable treatment.
