Juvederm and other fillers carry a small risk of vascular occlusion and ischemia (low blood flow) when injected. Immediate treatment with warm compresses, aspirin by mouth, and topical Nitoglycerin/ Nitropaste is indicated for your condition. We also use hylauronidase/ Wydase to dissolve the Juvederm and improve blood flow. It is best to use only qualified experts to inject the face with fillers. Best,

I am concerned with the dusky color of your skin and the effect of your reaction. You need to return immediately to your treating physician for examination. It looks like there might be vascular compromise which can be serious. Please keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
