Reversing Juvederm injections

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler and can be dissolved with Vitrase injections. I would discuss your options with a trained Vitrase expert.

Systemic symptoms unlikely to be related to Juvederm

The symptoms you described are not common and I would suggest you follow up with your family doctor to evaluate these systemic symptoms. I have not heard of these problems from Botox or Juvederm.

Also, I would suggest you follow up with your surgeon to discuss.
