Is soreness from Juvederm normal the day after?

It is not abnormal to have a little bit of soreness and slight bruising following treatment with Juvederm. If the discomfort persists, I would recommend following up with your provider. I hope this helps, and best of luck!

Soreness and brusing may occur after soft tissue filler treatment, such as Juvederm.  Best is to call and consider following-up with the injecting doctor.

Juvederm Ultra is better tolerated during injection than plain Juvederm. However, it is not uncommon to feel some soreness especially if there is a bruise or hematoma (unuasual but possible). If it persists, seek the provider who did the injection for evaluation.

Soreness after Juvederm Injection

+1

Swelling and soreness after a Juvederm (or any injection for that matter) is quite common.  It may be worse if a bruise occurred.  A little ice will help, and your symptoms should resolve in a few days to a week.  If you feel extreme tenderness or pain, then you should see your physician immediately to ensure there isn't an infection or vascular compromise to the treated area.

Soreness or Pain Days After Juvederm Injections may happen, and is related to the actual injection and manipulation of the treated area. Soreness may last just a few days, while bruising, if present, will resolve in 7 to 10 days.

Soreness after Juvederm

+1

It is very common to have some tenderness and even mild swelling for a few days after your injection with Juvederm or any other filler.  Some patients even have some bruising in the area of the filler injections that can last around a week. Your soreness should resolve after a few more days and the filled area should feel soft and natural.

What's normal the day after Juvederm is done

+1

The day after Juvederm (and for a few days) you can expect to feel some soreness and redness at the injection sites, especially if additional manipulation to the area was done by your injector. You should also expect some possible bruising and swelling. All of this will go away with a bit of time.

Sore after Juverderm

Tenderness after injections is normal. Many patients experience some tightness, irritation, and soreness after filler injections. However, if the pain feels unusual or you are experiencing a lot of discomfort, I would return to your injector for further assessment.
