Can Dermal Fillers Affect Blood Count? Can They Affect Blood Tests and Other Medical Exams?

Juvederm and blood work
Juvederm and the other hyaluronic acid tissue fillers are very safe products and should have no effect on blood work. In the unlikely event that you do get some type of allergic response or infection after treatment you may have a slight elevation in your white blood cells but it's nothing long lasting. If your blood work was normal before Juvederm, it should be normal after....any changes would be a coincidence.

Dermal Fillers affect Blood Count
Unless there is some complication such as infection following the placement of dermal fillers, these medications will not affect your blood count.
Side effects from Juvederm injections
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane have no organ or species specificity. In theory there is no risk of an allergic reaction. There should be no risk of a systemic reaction that could influence your blood test results. Even skin testing is not necessary before injecting hyaluronic acid. In fact, in spite of its frequent use for cosmetic purposes, there are very few reports of hypersensitivity reactions.

Dermal fillers and blood count
Dermal fillers are generally very safe when injected by a good physician injector and won't affect your blood count, or your ability to donate blood either.
Dermal Fillers do NOT normally affect Blood Count
Juvederm and other wrinkle fillers do NOT affect blood count. In the very small likelihood of infection the white count MAY become elevated. Fillers are very safe and this is sa very remote possibility.
