What should I do? One month after juvederm injected in the side of mouth, numbness keeps spreading throughout my gums and chin.

Juvederm and numbness
It sounds as if there is nerve irritation or damage from the injections. I would return to your treating physician for examination and possible Vitrase or Steroids to help improve these symptoms. Best, Dr. Green
Filler injection around the mouh
I would see the supervising physician for that PA and be evaluated. Also ask them if it's worth trying a dose of steroids or perhaps dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase. I'm not sure it will work but it's something to consider. Good luck!

Numbness after Juvederm
I would recommend contacting them so they can do an in person evaluation to make sure nothing else is going on. It is possible from swelling it could cause some irriation to the nerves, but it should not keep spreading. You need to be seen by your doctor to make sure something else is not going on.
