Can Juvederm Migrate?

You may want to contact Allergan directly regarding your question about Juvederm passing the blood brain barrier.

I have never heard of this personally.  I do know Juvederm expands, as it is a humectant and pulls moisture into its self.  If it was injected into a blood vessel accidentally, it could possibly migrate in the vessel.  The results could be mild or severe depending on the structure and how the circulation was effected. This is not common but it is possible and is one of the risks injectors must know how to recognize and manage medically immediately.
