Swelling months after Juvederm
Thank you for your question juanie14. Juvederm and Restylane are dermal fillers used to enhance the face. Swelling after an injection is normal and can last up to two weeks. If swelling occurs months later, it is unlikely from the filler. If hyaluronidase and antibiotics are used and there is still swelling, it is unlikely from the filler. Humira (adalimumab) is a medication used for a variety of autoimmune disease, many of which can cause swelling. Please consult with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
