Firmness after fillers
It is normal to feel the product and have swelling immediately after filler injection. This sensation can last up to two weeks. If you are still not happy at this time I'd recommend you follow up with your injector to see what options are available (such as injecting an enzyme to get rid of it).
I hope this helps and good luck.
Juvederm and Side Effects
Juvederm is a great product for facial injections. However, swelling can be a by-product of those injections. This temporary swelling can last up to 14 days. If you are still swollen after that I would return to your treating dermatologist for examination and possible Vitrase to dissolve any unwanted product.

Swelling (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but gentle massage might be necessary. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last 1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks until the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.
