Can Juvederm last 7 years? Will hyaluronidase still work?
Doctor Answers 3
I have seen Juvederm swelling 7 years after injection. I suggest you see an expert in fillers to assess you and determine next steps. Cannula injections limit complications. Best, Dr. Emer.
Juvederm removal after 7 years
There are no bad side effects from using hyaluronidase. I would first try this. If no success, 5FU might be needed. Yes it is possible that it is still around after 7 years if it is a granuloma.
Long lasting HA filler
Although HA fillers are supposed to last only about one year, we have found that it some patients it can last much longer than that. I have recently seen 2 patients and one had filler for 8 years and one for 6. The hyaluronidase was able to easily remove the filler even after all this time. I have not heard of hyaluronidase causing problems, so you should go ahead any try it.
