Feel tender a month after Juvederm? (Photo)

I had juvederm injected almost a month ago in my NF she also done near my nose! The left side is still tender to touch and I feel a lot of tightness and almost pressure around that area and around my eyes! I also have abit of redness... Does this sound like biofilm and should I see a doctor?

Hello, and thanks for your question and photo. Sorry to hear you've been having trouble. It's hard to tell from the photos exactly what is going on, so I recommend that you follow up with your physician. However, this is clearly not a normal reaction. I suspect your best bet will be to have the product dissolved, but I'd also want to make sure you do not have an infection. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Thank you for your question. I would recommend you follow up with your physician for an evaluation to rule out any possibility of an infection that might be going on .

This is something that needs to be evaluated. It is possible it is a low grade infection but you normally would have redness as well. To determine the next treatment a physical exam is needed.
