The side effects you are experiencing are not likely related to your treatment with filler after this amount of time. I would recommend following up with your physician to ensure there is not another issue that needs attention. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Juvederm last anywhere from 6-9 months after being injected. If you're having an allegeric reaction this far out, it most likely must be a cause of something aside from your filler. See you medical provider to seek further assistance.
