Leaking Juvederm out of lip?
Doctor Answers 7
JUVÉDERM® is non-toxic and completely safe in the rare chance of ingestion.
I’m sorry to hear about your lip! I hope you’re receiving any necessary medical care you might need. As for the JUVÉDERM®, about 2 weeks after injection, JUVÉDERM® has attached itself to the surrounding tissues, so there’s little chance that any would have leaked from your lip. However, if you were to accidentally ingest JUVÉDERM®, there’d be nothing to worry about. JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body. Therefore, JUVÉDERM® is completely safe.
Thank you for your question. It is unlikely that you swallowed any of the Juvederm, since it becomes incorporated into the skin after it is injected. If for some reason you did swallow a small bit, Juvederm is a Hyaluronic acid filler which is non toxic and would not be harmful if swallowed.

Juvederm can incorporate into the skin so it is very unlikely that you ingested any of it. It would not be harmful if you did.
