Edema From Juvederm Done 6 Years Ago

Juvederm Ultra or Ultra plus wears off in 9-12 months. Juvederm Voluma last up to 24 months. It is highly, highly unlikely that there is residual Juvederm 6 years later. Without a photo, it's impossible to comment on what other things may be causing the malar edema.

Juvederm and Hyaluronidase for Removal

I suggest removal of the juvederm if you have swelling and consider venus legacy treatments to speed up healing.  Best, Dr. Emer.
