Juvederm Packaging by Allergan
Juvederm by Allergan comes in two forms. There is Juvederm Ultra which is in a light pink box and Juvederm Ultra Plus in a darker pink box. The box contains two 0.08cc syringes of Juvederm in a pre-sealed pull back plastic peel pack. When the pack is opened there is one 0.08cc syringe with a hologram sticker around the syringe and the sticker has the lot number and expiration date on it and this will get put on your chart. There is also one 30 gauge 1/2 inch needle. Juvederm hyaluronic acid filler looks like clear gel in the the syringe. If you ever have any questions always ask your injector to look at the package before the procedure.
When in doubt, look at the Juvederm packaging
All useful information from the panel members. A good practice is for the injector to open the packaging in the treatment room. The enclosed labels are then placed in the patient chart to identify the lot number as well as expiration date.
FDA approved Juvederm packaging
Juvederm is Allergan's hyaluronic acid injectable filler. Although it may not be as well known as Medicis's Restylane, they are both cross-linked hyaluronic acid fillers sold by competing companies. The Restylane packing is a blue and white box with a single syringe inside. Allergan's packaging is different. They designed a box of various shades of pink, purple and white. In the US Juvederm comes in two varieties 'Ultra' and 'Ultra Plus'. The packaging for both companies is strictly regulated by the FDA. Once approved the packaging cannot change. When in doubt you have a right to ask the doctor to examine the packaging of these products to ensure that you are receiving authentic FDA approved products.

Juvederm is pre-packaged by Allergan
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are both packed in boxes containing two plastic carriers each with a paper cover that peels back to reveal the syringe.
