Delayed reaction to Juvederm? Allergy or infection? (photos)

Allergy vs Infection
Infection in both areas at the same time would be very unusual, my feeling is that this is an allergic reaction- delayed in nature.
Juvederm Volift and Volbella are great products, the chances of a reaction like this is remote, and by all means no fault of your injector. Each Specialist will have their own method of treating this reaction. Some sit wait for a week to see if it settles, some will give you Pred. and an enzyme to dissolve under antibiotic cover.
See your injector for their preferred treatment.
All the best

I would return to your treating physician for examination since you may have an allergic reaction and need Vitrase to dissolve the product. Best, Dr. Green
