Juvederm has hyaluronic acid, which is the same hyaluronic acid you and all mammals already have in your connective tissue. The HA molecules are too large to enter the circulation, and stay in the connective tussues where injected. Some Juvederm also has lidocaine to make the procedure more comfortable. Drugs.com, for example, has the following to say about lidocaine injected in breastfeeding women:
Lidocaine concentrations in milk during continuous IV infusion, epidural administration and in high doses as a local anesthetic are low and the lidocaine is poorly absorbed by the infant. Lidocaine is not expected to cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants. No special precautions are required.
Some practitioners also use small amounts of epinephrine to minimize bruising. When given for therapeutic reasons, in larger amounts than what can ever be reached in the concentration after Juvederm injections, epinephrine can briefly increase the heart rate. Out of an excess of caution, I would probably have recommended pumping and discarding the breast milk for 6-8 hours after treatment in a patient of mine, but no precautions thereafter, and now that that period has elapsed, it should be clear that no harm was suffered.
I cannot see that someone in your situation could have a problem, but of course you will want to discuss this with your pediatrician.

this is frecuently that happens at the office, i think your doctor do not ask you: Anything special I should know?
as a patient, always tell your doctor all the details of health
Doctors prefer not use filler and botox at pregnancy or breastfeeding, but the amount than you can find in the milk is nearly to 0... and both substances aren't cause any symptoms or diseases to your baby
Then, breast your baby without nightmares...
(PD: rules of FDA says don´t do fillers or botox but are precaution recommendations; my opinion is not a permission for do fillers or botox in pregnancy or breastfeeding )

Injectables should have no effect on breastfeeding
Botox and filler are not recommended for breast feeding mothers.
Botox and breastfeeding
Botox is an amazing procedure that removes the fine lines in the forehead and around the eyes. I would not recommend breastfeeding when you are receiving Botox injections. There have been no studies of pregnant women or breastfeeding women receiving Botox and their babies. Please consult your pediatrician as well.
