Is Juvederm okay to use if you have borderline hypothyroidism that doesn't need any treatment and is very minimal in the blood test results? I've had it before with no problem but I wanted to ask for your opinion.
Juvederm Safe for Hypothyroidism Patients?
Doctor Answers (12)
You should be fine with this. I know of no reason that it will interfere with your hormone function. The only thing that would be a concern would be an allergic rection, which would be very very rare.
I will add my voice to that of my colleagues. I do not believe hypothyroidism is a contraindication to having Juvederm injected. It is always wise to bring up your medical history if your physician has not asked for one.
Juvederm and Hypothyroidism
Mild hypothyroidism does not pose a contraindication to treatment with Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Hydrelle or any other injectable hyaluronic acid filler. Feel free to proceed!
Best of luck.

Hyaluronic acid injections in hypothyroid patients
Juvederm has no know contraindication to injecting in a patient with hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a very common condition and many of my patients have had the treatment without any difficulty. It is important that your doctor takes a thorough medical history and makes sure you do not have any other reason for not receiving the injections. Good luck.
Juvederm in Hypothyroid Patients
Yes, it is safe.
Hyaluronic Acid is the ingredient and is not allergenic i.e., it does not cause an allergic reaction.
If you are very concerned you can get a small tester dose in your forearm and wait for 48 hours to see if you react. There is no known reaction in hypothyroid patients towards Juvederm
Juvederm and hypothyroidism
As you have seen from the other responders, the consensus is that hypothyroidism (or any thyroid condition for that matter) should not be affected by Juvederm injections.
Juvederm and Hypothyroidism
I know of no specific contraindication of using juvederm in patients with hypothyroidism. It should be fine to use. I always take a complete medical history on all my patients before any procedure big or small.
There is no contraindicaiton for Juvederm or any other injectable with hypothyoridism. As long as your injector reviews your medical history, you should be fine. Good luck with your injections.
