Juvederm Skin Changes

After 5 mos my Juvederm for lines around mouth is starting to absorb away. In the last week or so and noticing strange skin changes - blotchy skin, pimples that aren't pimples on my cheeks, brown sun spots forming daily and what look like "rings" on my face.

Has any else noticed skin changes as juvederm absorbs?

My skin looks really bad - used to be fine.

It has now been 51/2 mos. since juvederm in lines...

It has now been 51/2 mos. since juvederm in lines around my mouth. Still puffy and feels uncomfortable. I am praying I am near the end of this nightmare. I now see new lines around my mouth and cheeks that weren't there before. Like my face was stretched and is now deflating. I am so depressed and feel i have ruined my face which was fine before. Also all kinds of blotchy spots on my cheeks and around my mouth that weren't there before. Saw my doc and he just said I dont know what you are talking about - I cant see it - new lines are just normal aging. Yeah right  in 5 mos! I feel this stuff is like a parasite in your skin and steals all the moisture and nutrients so the rest of face  cells starve. That is how my skin now looks - dry, lined, patchy with strange almost spots that look like circles (faint). Would like to know if anyone else has had the same experience and just pray i can just get my old face back..

hi yogagirl... thanks for your reply, i'm happy to hear that your skin is getting better.. i really hope all the side effects are just temporary... pls keep me posted on your progress... all the best... i hope my skin will get better in time too...
Hi Floral,i am going on 8 mos. and it has been a struggle. the dr. said i had an inflammatory skin response to it. i believe when the juv is ALL gone another mo. or so this will start to get better. i think with time most of this will go away. i am staying out of the sun & eating diet w/lots of omega 3 oils to help skin. i am going to dermatologist next wk. 7-7-09 for evaluation. send me another email & i will give an update. My skin condition seems up & down as the juve is absorbing. i have marked to the day 9 mo. Hang in there - i think the skin will renew when product is gone.
hi yogagirl.. i think i have exactly like how u described ur skin, after nearly 2 mths of juvederm injections, i noticed the skin in that area are blotchy like a ring and it looks dark, the skin there also appear to be thinning, and there is one part that looks dented (did this happen to u too) i'm so depressed abt this.. how is your skin? is it improving with time? do you think the side effects and the scar cause by this can be permanent? thank you
