Juvederm Stayed in Line After Injection

I just had juvederm yesterday..there is an apparent "line" (vertically) on left cheek that is hard and noticeable. Will the treated area disperse or will the gel remain? How can I flatten out the area? Its as if the gel did not move but stayed in the vertical line. How can I get it to flatten out? Strange looking..thanks

You should return to your injector for assessment.  You may just have some swelling that may persist for 2 weeks but he should take a look and see if any adjustments should be made.

If you notice a vertical line where the juvedem was injected you shoudl definitely speak with your doctor about what to do.  For my patients, I will recommend massage which can sometimes help to improve irregularities.

Hard line on face from filler

If you have a firm raised line on the face after a filler, it may indicate that the filler is in a superficial plane and needs to be deeper. It may be well integrated and massaging may not help any longer. You should see your physician who injected the filler to rule out other causes such as a clotted vein. The filler can be dissolved with hyaluronidase and then the filler can be reinjected but deeper than where it was placed initially.

You got the best advise. Go and see the Dr. who injected the Juvederm.

I hope He / She is qualified

This could be eith to injecting too much or injecting too superficial

Why not return to the injecting doctor for appropriate care? Massage and warm compresses can help. Otherwise a photo would be great.
