Juvederm Ultra XC won't go away! It's been 11 months (Photo)
Doctor Answers 11
Your JUVÉDERM® should have dissolved by now. Consult with a cosmetic surgeon.
In my experience, Juvederm Ultra usually last 6-12 months, but can last longer for some individuals. You could have the filler dissolved with injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
I would not use the filler you have bene keeping for 1 year.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

I'd say go ahead and have hyaluronidase injected to dissolve it. I think you will find there is actually not much product left eleven months later, so it will not makes things appreciably worse.
Best of luck.

Juvederm and Unhappiness
Juvederm in lips
it is possible to dissolve the filler if you are unhappy with it. I would talk with your injector. I have been performing fat transfer for a very long time with long term results. Therefore, I do a lot of fillers because it is a natural precursor to this procedure. Look into your options, that's the best answer.
Should be gone by now
Thanks for the question. Those products can last 6-12 months. After 12 months, the majority of the product should go away. The nice thing about the products is that over time they cause your own tissue to start to build up collagen and therefore can give you longer lasting results. I don't see anything major with your photo, but if there is something you are unhappy with they get a second opinion. Yes a medication can be injected to dissolve any residual filler. The left over syringe needs to be used before the expiration date. Keep in mind the product has been opened so it is not completely sterile. The longer it sits in that vial, the more likely the product gets contaminated.

Juvederm results and dissolving it
Juvederm results can last for over a year. You can either wait it out until the product dissolves
or get a medication injected that will dissolve the remaining product. If you get Hylenex (medication that dissolves the filler), you will look how you did prior to getting the original
i do not recommend using filler that has been opened. Filler should be opened, used and thrown out.
Best of luck!
