I had juvederm injection and then my fotofacial RF treatment, will the heat from the fotofacial melt the juvederm?
Will IPL or Radio Frequency Treatment Dissolve Juvederm?

Effects of lasers or radiofrequency on juvederm
The scientific data supports no major issues with using hyaluronic acid fillers like juvederm or restylane, and having laser, light, or radiofrequency treatments. That said, my preference would be to wait at least 1 week after injecting fillers before using the other devices. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
Lasers and fillers
The lasers should not impact the fillers, but I would do the fillers after the lasers, because of the potential for bruising which may impact the lasers.
IPL does not effect Juvederm
The material in Juvederm (Hyaluronic Acid) does not get melted by heat or IPL treatments. The only precaution is to not do both treatments at the same time. Bruising from the Juvederm injections can interfer with the IPL settings needed for photofacial.

Generally, we do not see Juvederm dissolving due to IPL
We have used Fraxel, IPL, VBeam and Thermage following injections of Juvederm and Restylane without any loss of the filler.
However, we do prefer to do the Lasers or Ipl Or Radiofrequency treatments first and immediately after do the fillers
Juvederm and radiofrequency treatment
I am not aware of any scientific studies that have shown any deleterious effect on fillers from subsequent treatment with IPL, V-beam laser, Fraxel laser, or Thermage tightening.
