Hello and thank you for the question.

There is no known cross reactivity between Penecillin and Juvederm. You are safe to proceed with your Juvederm Treatment.

Juvederm does not contain penicillin. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid  So you should not have a allergic reaction to Juvederm.

Yes, you can go ahead and get your Juvederm safely.  There is no cross-reaction between penicillin and juvederm, so people who are allergic to one, won't be allergic to the other.

There is presently no evidence supporting cross reactivity with Juvederm and Penicillin. Allergic reactions are rare with Juvederm.

Juvederm does not contain any Penicillin so it would be safe for injection with patients with Penicillin allergies.

It is absolutely safe to get Juvederm if you are allergic to Penicillin.  These chemical structures do not interact.

Penicillin allergies do not interfere with either Juvaderm or Restylane hyaluronic acid augmentation. The products are not related and pose no threat to each other.

Juvederm And Drugs Do Not Cross-React

Juvederm and Penicillin are completely different chemical compounds. Juvederm is composed of a natural substance, hyaluron, of which the body is very familiar so it is not a drug. Penicillin is a synthetically-derived drug that is not natural to the body. For these reasons, there is no relationship between a Penicillin allergy and any risk of reaction from a Juvederm injectable treatment.
