You should speak with your doctor first before receiving Juvederm, as it may be okay but you should proceed with caution just to be on the safe side.

I would touch base with the doctor managing your immune disorder

Dear luluoliver,

I suspect HA fillers would be fine as there are no antigens present. Even though test spots are not needed with the HA fillers its not unreasonable to try one prior to full injection into the areas of your face that you are concerned with. Finally, it makes sense that you would want to touch base with your doctor that is managing your immune disorder just to make sure.

All the best,
