Juvederm and swelling

Juvederm adds water to the process of breasking down.  Initially the swelling may just be from the procedure, give it some time.

Juvederm may cause prolonged swelling

Juvederm may cause prolonged swelling. As for how long the swelling can last, it depends upon the area. Swelling around the eyes may last a couple of weeks. However, in other areas, swelling may go down in a couple of days.

Suggest you see the Dr. who injected the filler. The puffiness could be of many causes, from swelling to injecting too much to possible infection.

See your Dr. and dicuss the diagnois and options.

Puffiness after Juvederm

The puffiness can be overcorrection or water retention. Massage may help, but injection of hyaluronidase can help flatten the area.
