Juvderm injections and autoimmune disease.
I would recommend discussing this issue with the doctor who is managing your autoimmune issues. Juvderm can be safely used by patients who have certain autoimmune problems, after approval by their medical doctors.
Filler with autoimmune issues
While there is no contraindication of dermal fillers with autoimmune disorders, and I have personally injected many patients with autoimmune disorders, it is important you are feeling up to having such procedures done! If you have any issues with skin infections our office uses a special skin disinfectant to completely clean the area prior to injection. Infections are essentially non-existent in general but with a history of such, we would take extra precautions. I hope this helps!
