I injected Juvederm on my nose bridge few months ago. Since last night, my nose became swollen and painful. Is this normal?

In essence Juvederm as well as all other fillers can become infected. It is much more likely in the immediate post injection period rather than several months later. Still possible, the symptoms are suggestive of a localized infection. Antibiotics, warm compresses, and perhaps even drainage might be indicated. I suggested that you return to the physician who did the injection. Unfortunately with such a variety of injectors it is very important to have your work done by someone who can manage any complications which may occur. There is a remote possibility that this is not related to your Juvederm, but unlikely.
